What are the uses of omeprazole:

Omeprazole belongs to a group of medicines called proton pump inhibitors. They work by reducing the amount of acid your stomach produces.

Omeprazole is used to treat the following conditions:

In adults:

• Gastroesophageal reflux disease, in which stomach acid escapes into the esophagus (the tube that connects your throat to your stomach), causing pain, inflammation and heartburn.

• Ulcers in the upper part of the intestine or stomach.

• Ulcers infected with bacteria called "Helicobacter pylori".

• Ulcers caused by medicines called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Omeprazole can also be used to prevent ulcers from forming if you are taking an NSAID.

• Increased acidity in the stomach due to the growth of the pancreas (Zollinger-Ellison syndrome).

In children:

Children over 1 and 10 kg

• Gastroesophageal reflux disease in children. Symptoms of the condition can include stomach contents returning to the mouth, vomiting and poor weight gain.

Children and adolescents over 4 years old

• Ulcers infected with bacteria called "Helicobacter pylori".

Do not take omeprazole:

• If you are allergic to omeprazole or any of the other ingredients of this medicine.

• If you are allergic to medicines that contain other proton pump inhibitors.

Warnings and precautions:

Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking omeprazole. Omeprazole may mask the symptoms of other diseases. Therefore, if any of the following happen to you before or while you start taking omeprazole, talk to your doctor right away:

• You lose a lot of weight for no reason and have trouble swallowing.

• You suffer from stomach pain or indigestion.

• You start vomiting food or blood.

• Black stools (blood-stained stools).

• If you suffer from severe or persistent diarrhoea.

• You have serious liver problems.

• You are scheduled to undergo a specific blood test (chromogranin A).

Taking a proton pump inhibitor such as omeprazole, especially over more than a year, may slightly increase your risk of a broken hip, wrist, or spine. Tell your doctor if you have osteoporosis or if you take corticosteroids (which can increase your risk of osteoporosis).

Possible side effects:

Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them. If you notice any of the following rare but serious side effects, stop taking omeprazole and call your doctor right away: severe allergic reaction or symptoms of liver problems.
