Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Good morning, I am Dr Ruff. Thank you for contacting us this morning.
A hiatus hernia would tend to cause Gastro Oesophageal symptoms, therefore either Omeprazole or Lansoprazole would manage this. Crohns is a Inflammatory Bowel Disease, this means if you have symptoms of crohn's then the management is with suppression, so steriods would be used.
If you have symptoms of crohns I would strongly recommend you manage them and contact your gastroenterologist.
What symptoms are you currently experiencing?
Okay thanks. So you do not have to take anything for the hiatus hernia, however if you notice side effects from Omeprazole I would suggest trying Lansoprazole instead. This may settle the bloating.
