Treating conditions affecting the stomach Omeprazole Omeprazole Actavis

Uses
Omeprazole Actavis (Omeprazole) works by affecting proton pumps in the stomach. It is indicated for a number of conditions related to digestion and stomach pain, including dyspepsia, laryngopharyngeal reflux, peptic ulcers, GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), duodenal or other ulcers occurring as a result of NSAID treatment (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, medicines used in the treatment of pain which can cause side effects occurring in the stomach), Zollinger-Ellison syndrome and other related conditions.

When used to treat peptic ulcers, it is used in combination with other medicines, so as to ensure that Helicobacter pylori (a type of gram negative bacteria that occurs in the stomach) is removed. Patients have also used it as a maintenance treatment for some of the conditions listed above. This medicine aims to treat the conditions listed here by causing a decrease in the amount of acid that the stomach produces. It achieves this by blocking the action of the proton pumps, thereby leading to a significant reduction in the secretion of stomach acid.

Dosage and Administration
Omeprazole Actavis (Omeprazole) is used for a wide range of conditions. The medicine comes as 10mg modified release capsules for oral administration. Dosage is depending on the condition being treated and the patient`s symptoms. Adults affected by gastroduodenal lesions related to NSAIDs may be instructed to administer 20mg per day. The majority of patients will be treated in 4 weeks, however if a full recovery has not occurred, the doctor may recommend another 4 weeks of treatment. Dyspepsia is sometimes treated with 20mg, administered once per day for a period of 14 to 28 days. However, certain patients may respond to a dosage of 10mg per day. In all cases, deciding the correct dosage will be the responsibility of the doctor providing treatment.

Side effects
Administering Omeprazole Actavis (Omeprazole) may result in side effects, such as:

  • Gas
  • Headaches
  • Feeling constipated
  • Pain occurring in the stomach
  • Symptoms similar to that of a cold

The risk of serious side effects is lower. However, patients will need to see their doctor straight away if they notice severe pain in the stomach, spasms that affect the muscles, shaking, seizures, bloody diarrhoea or any other severe reactions which have not been listed here.

Precautions
Proton pump inhibitors (including this medicine) might increase the risk of broken bones.

This medicine will not provide rapid relief from symptoms of indigestion.

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 Omeprazole Actavis (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).
