Omeprazole is a type of medicine called a proton pump inhibitor (PPI). Proton pumps are enzymes in the lining of your stomach that help it make acid to digest food. Omeprazole prevents proton pumps from working properly which reduces the amount of acid the stomach makes.
The following conditions are treated with omeprazole:
- ‘Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease’ (GORD). Here, stomach acid escapes into the gullet, the tube connecting your throat to your stomach, producing discomfort, inflammation, and heartburn.
- Stomach or duodenal ulcers are ulcers in the upper part of the gut (gastric ulcer).
- Ulcers that are 'Helicobacter pylori' bacterially infected. Your doctor may also recommend antibiotics if you have this problem in order to treat the infection and promote the healing of the ulcer.
- Ulcers are brought on by NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Medications), a class of medications. If you are using NSAIDs, omeprazole can also be used to prevent ulcers from developing.
- Excessive stomach acid is brought on by pancreatic growth (Zollinger-Ellison syndrome).
Omeprazole comes in capsules, tablets and as a liquid that you swallow.
You’ll usually take omeprazole once a day, first thing in the morning. If you take omeprazole twice a day, take 1 dose in the morning and 1 dose in the evening. It can be taken with or without food.
