    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    400mg? I was on 40mg - I can't imagine you're taking 10x that amount!!! Whoa. It would be worth exploring whether your gallbladder is functioning correctly - I've read numerous posts about how acid reflux is a warning sign of a failing gallbladder. I've seen a million posts of people who no longer need acid reflux meds after gb removal. It's worth exploring because 400mg of Omeprazole is just masking the real issue. Good luck!
