Greetings. Thank you for your questions.

For your information, omeprazole is a proton pump inhibitors that block the production of acid by the stomach. However, there’s no report that saying this medication would cause side effect as hunger. However, since you’re experiencing it and if it caused problem, I would suggest you to talk to your doctor to find other alternatives for the treatment of your GERD.

The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions. In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints. Therefore, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor.
