Prilosec causing iron deficiency anemia?
I have iron deficiency anemia, and my doctor says that taking Prilosec every day, as I do, can cause problems with the absorbtion of iron or other nutrients. The gastroenterologist prescribed the Prilosec for my GERD symptoms, and he said that regardless of what it says on the package, you can take it forever without worrying about side effects or anything. Has anybody had a similar experience with Prilosec or medications like it? Has anyone found a suitable substitute that does NOT cause absorbtion problems?
