    Not everyone's body reacts the same way to medications.
    I take Omeprazole daily and I've never had issues with it making me gain weight.
    My weight gain was from poor eating habits, and grazing high calorie foods.
    My weight loss has been steady since I've started counting my calories and exercising.

    I've been taking omeprazole for about 4 years - turns out I have an esophageal hernia but it was the 60 lb weight gain that caused the problems. I've also heard that long term use can lead to problems with some nutrient absorption? Now that I'm down 67 lbs, I switched to Pepcid just last week (it's not an SSRI). So far so good!

    Calcium deficiency/loss, my doctor checks my calcium every three months.

    I take supplements that appear to help. My calcium has actually gone up.
