Omeprazole drug information

Medication Information: Acid is produced naturally in the stomach to help digest food and kill bacteria. This acid is irritating and irritating, so your body produces a natural mucosal barrier that protects the lining of the gastric mucosa. In some people, this barrier can be broken down, allowing the acid to damage the stomach and cause inflammation, ulcers and other illnesses. Some people have problems with the muscle group above their stomach, and this causes the stomach not to close tightly, and as a result, stomach acid enters the esophagus and irritates the esophagus, causing heartburn. This condition is often referred to as "acid reflux" or "acid reflux." Proton pump inhibitors, such as omeprazole, stop the production of excess acid from the lining cells inside the stomach, which can help prevent the formation or healing of wounds.

By reducing the amount of acid, omeprazole can help reduce the symptoms of acid reflux disease, such as heartburn. Omeprazole is also prescribed as part of the treatment for Helicobacter pylori (bacteria in the stomach) and helps you get rid of ulcers. Omeprazole under the brand name Axorid is sold in combination with ketoprofen in pharmacies.

Make a list of all the medicines (including prescription / over-the-counter medicines and herbal products) you use and share them with your doctor and pharmacist.

Some medications that may interact with omeprazole include clostazole, clopidogrel, methotrexate (especially high-dose therapy), rifampin, and St John's wort.

Some medications require stomach acid to be properly absorbed by the body. Omeprazole reduces stomach acid, so it affects the performance of some drugs. Some of the drugs that are affected by omeprazole include: atazanavir, erlotinib, nelfinavir, pazopanib, rilpivirine, azazolone antacids, and azole (ketoconazole), posaconazole (posaconazole)).

Omeprazole is very similar to S. omeprazole. Do not use medicines containing omeprazole with omeprazole.

Omeprazole may interfere with certain laboratory tests and may cause erroneous results. Talk to your lab staff and all doctors about the medicine you have taken before the test.
