Dear Faisal ,
Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
Going through records , I feel that since you don't have any symptoms you can safely stop Tab Inderal and watch for any symptoms like palpitations , if palpitations present then it is better to do Holter Monitoring and then to decide whether to continue tab Inderal or not.
For your digestive problems ,if you have don't any symptoms then you can safely stop it. You can also try to prevent recurrences of acid reflux by taking food at regular intervals ,avoiding spicy foods and avoiding smoking and alcohol in case you take it. In case of recurrences you should do a Endoscope to identify the cause and meanwhile you can start Tab Omeprazole 40 mg i hr before food.
Periodically monitor your Lipid profile at least once in 2 yrs or earlier if your initial lipid profile is abnormal, daily exercise and eat healthy foods like more of fruits and green leafy vegetables and avoid junk foods.

Thank you Doctor
I have not taken the medicine for about 3 days now and so far i have not faced any issues or symptoms,and as for the palpitations what exactly is that,and the omeprazole does it have any side effects,And any idea that till how many days if i have no symptoms after withdrawing the medicine it is safe to stop.That would be my last query and Thank you very much for the beneficial advise.
|Dear Faisal, Palpitations means unusual high heart beats and it occurs even with minimal activities. |
Side Effects of Omeprazole are rare but can occurs like
Back or leg pain
Bleeding from lips
Blood colour urine
As long as you digestive problems you can continue Omeprazole.
As we all know that prevention is better than cure, so I suggest preventive measures like
Avoiding spicy and fried foods
Eating at regular intervals
Eating healthy foods.
These measures can prevent digestive problems.
Stop medications once you feel relief of symptoms.
