What is Omeprazole and How to Take It
Omeprazole belongs to type of drugs called proton pump inhibitors and are prescribed to manage GERD or acid reflux. Other kinds of drugs in this class include esomeprazole, pantoprazole and dexlansoprazole.
Omeprazole is classified under proton pump inhibitors. This medication reduces the production of acid in the stomach. Omeprazole pills block the process carried out by hydrogen potassium ATPase, limiting the amount of acid in the stomach. The reduction ensures that less acid will enter the esophagus and decreases the likelihood of discomfort.
Omeprazole is generally available as Omeprazole 20 mg prescription as well as 10 mg and 40 mg delayed-release capsules. Omeprazole medication is prescribed as per the patient’s need and condition. An omeprazole dose of 20 mg or prescription omeprazole of 40 mg can be taken more than once daily, usually 30 minutes before a meal. Another form is a delayed-release oral suspension. It takes about 1 hour for the medication to work after consumption.
In order to manage GERD, 20 mg of Omeprazole a day for 4 weeks is the usual treatment protocol. In case of a duodenal stomach ulcer, 20 mg of Omeprazole for 4 weeks is the recommended dosage.
