Description


Main Use Active Ingredient Marketed Name
Ulcers and other gastric disorders Omeprazole Losec

Uses
Losec (Omeprazole) inhibits acidity in the stomach, so as to help treat duodenal ulcers, gastric ulcers, GERD, erosive oesophagitis, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome and other conditions. If used for ulcers that are associated with H. pylori, doctors will also recommend the use of an antibiotic. This drug is a PPI (proton pump inhibitor), and a prodrug. Upon ingestion, it is converted to sulfenic acid (its active metabolite) and binds with the proton pump in the parietal cell, resulting in the long acting prevention of gastric acid secretion (usually for 24 to 48 hours).

Dosage and Administration
Losec (Omeprazole) is used on a sort term basis (ranging from 4 to 8 weeks) when used for gastric ulcers. When used to maintain healing of erosive oesophagitis, the treatment period may be longer. It is possible that pathological hypersecretory conditions such as systemic mastocytosis, multiple endocrine adenomas and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome will require treatment on a long term basis. This medicine comes supplied as 40mg strength capsules for oral administration. Your doctor will tell you the precise daily dosage, as well as the length of time that you will need to take it for.

Side effects
Patients taking Losec (Omeprazole) might experience side effects, such as:

  • Headaches
  • Flatulence
  • Sneezing or nasal blockages
  • Constipation or loose stools
  • Soreness which affects the stomach

Report all side effects to the doctor in charge of medical treatment. Although the side effects listed above are considered to be mild in nature, there are other reactions which are severe. You will need to consult your doctor immediately if you notice bruises, depression, fever, visual blurring, breast size changes or any other reactions that have not been mentioned here.

Precautions
This medicine might decrease the absorption of vitamin B12 by the body, which may affect some patients, especially those taking it on a long term basis.

Medical research has pointed to the fact that proton pump inhibitors could slightly increase the risk of bone fractures. Older patients may be more at risk of this. Talk to your doctor about this before beginning treatment.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Losec (Omeprazole) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you suffer from any allergies.
  • If you suffer from any other health conditions or illnesses.
  • If you are using any other medicine (including all non-prescription).
  • If you are using any supplements, vitamins, or herbal products of any kind.
