I have had several bouts of foul smelling (eggy) and tasting

Resolved Question:

I have had several bouts of foul smelling (eggy) and tasting burps. My stomach swells, and like my food hasn't digested. I have had it probably a dozen times. But this time was seen by my GP they put me on 20mg of Omeprazole which cleared it up, then it came back so they increased the Omeprazole to 20mg twice a day. That cleared it up, but the last three nights the Omeprazole hasn't been lasting all day and the eggy burps come back in the evening, no matter if I eat, what I eat if I don't eat etc. It is just like my stomach stops working.Medication I am on
Amisulpride 400mg at night (15 years)
Fluoxetine (40mg about a year)
Chlorpromazine (50mg three times a day for about two years)
Furosemide (40mg about 6 months)
Diamox (250mg twice a day for about six months)
Ibuprofen (3 x a day about 4 months) Started before I started this

It started before I was put on Ibuprofen, however I don't think it helps. They are testing me for H Pylori now, as have had several bouts of this.
