Omeprazole belongs to a group of medicines called ‘proton pump inhibitors’ or "PPIs" for short. They work by reducing the amount of acid that your stomach produces.


Omeprazole 20mg Capsules are used to treat a multitude of conditions associated with stomach acid for example:


In adults:


  • ‘Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease’ (GORD). This is where acid from the stomach escapes into the gullet (the tube which connects your throat to your stomach) causing pain, inflammation and heartburn.

  • Ulcers in the upper part of the intestine (duodenal ulcer) or stomach (gastric ulcer).

  • Ulcers which are infected with bacteria called ‘Helicobacter pylori’. If you have this condition, your doctor may also prescribe antibiotics to treat the infection and allow the ulcer to heal.

  • Ulcers caused by medicines called NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs). Omeprazole 20 mg Capsules can also be used to stop ulcers from forming if you are taking NSAIDs.

  • Too much acid in the stomach caused by a growth in the pancreas (Zollinger-Ellison syndrome).

  • Omeprazole is a fast acting, convenient and effective treatment for acid reflux. A single capsule daily can alleviate symptoms throughout the whole day.

     

    Recommended dose for Acid Reflux:- ONE CAPSULE to be taken ONCE DAILY preferably 1 hour before food.

    If you notice any of the following rare but serious side effects, stop taking Losec and contact a doctor immediately:

  • Sudden wheezing, swelling of your lips, tongue and throat or body, rash, fainting or difficulties in swallowing (severe allergic reaction).
  • Reddening of the skin with blisters or peeling. There may also be severe blisters and bleeding in the lips, eyes, mouth, nose and genitals. This could be ‘Stevens-Johnson syndrome’ or ‘toxic epidermal necrolysis’.
  • Yellow skin, dark urine and tiredness which can be symptoms of liver problems.
  • Losec may in very rare cases affect the white blood cells leading to immune deficiency. If you have an infection with symptoms such as fever with a severely reduced general condition or fever with symptoms of a local infection such as pain in the neck, throat or mouth or difficulties in urinating, you must consult your doctor as soon as possible so that a lack of white blood cells (agranulocytosis) can be ruled out by a blood test. It is important for you to give information about your medicine at this time.
