Bloating III
May 3, 2000

I was the author of the Bloating and Bloating II questions.

Anyway, I asked my doctor for a prescription for Prilosec, because I had tried everything else to relieve the extreme bloating I was feeling and nothing was working. Well, within a day of taking Prilosec, the bloating is 95% gone. Also, my appetite and energy levels have increased and I have been able to do sit ups at the gym, whereas before I could not due to my extended stomach. I also feel more comfortable wearing a tank top now. I know that we need to find out what is the actual cause of the bloating (meds, diet), but I am grateful that the bloating is gone. I can thank Prilosec for this.

Response from Dr. Henry

Lucky guess on my part -- hope you continue to feel better! Keith Henry, M.D.
