Frequently Asked Questions
What is omeprazole (Losec) and how does it work?
Omeprazole is a type of medication known as a proton pump inhibitor (PPI), and is primarily used to treat stomach and esophagus problems related to acidity. It does so by blocking a system in the cells of your stomach, called the proton pump, which decreases the amount of acid your stomach makes. Omeprazole is sold under the brand name Losec.
What are the uses for omeprazole (Losec)?
Omeprazole relieves symptoms such as heartburn, difficulty swallowing, and persistent cough due to acid reflux. This medication helps heal acid damage to the stomach and esophagus and helps prevent ulcers.
How do you use omeprazole (Losec)?
Omeprazole is available as a capsule, tablet, or liquid solution and should be taken as directed by a doctor. Prescription omeprazole should be taken at least 1 hour before a meal and is usually taken once a day. However, it can be taken twice a day when used with other medications to eliminate H. pylori. Capsule forms come in doses varying from 10mg to 40mg.
What are the side effects and risks of omeprazole (Losec)?
As your body adjusts to the medication, omeprazole may cause:
- Nausea, vomiting
- Diarrhea, gas, stomach pain
Additionally, some users may experience low magnesium levels, vitamin B-12 deficiency, severe diarrhea, inflammation of the stomach lining, hives, difficulty breathing or swallowing, or irregular, fast, or pounding heartbeat. If any of these severe side effects occur, it is important to speak to a doctor as soon as possible.
Who should not take omeprazole (Losec)?
If you have allergic reactions to esomeprazole, lansoprazole, or pantoprazole, ask your doctor for alternative medication. Omeprazole should not be taken in combination with rilpivirine and rilpivirine-containing antiretrovirals. In addition, people taking warfarin to prevent blood clots should use omeprazole with caution as it can increase their risk of bleeding. During pregnancy or breast-feeding, this medication should only be used when clearly needed. Consult your doctor to discuss the risks and benefits.
