Omeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor or antacid. It is used for the treatment of several conditions of the stomach and oesophagus resulting from there being too much acid in the stomach. Omeprazole is typically used to treat frequent heartburn and gastro oesophageal reflux disease (GORD).
Omeprazole comes as 10 mg, 20 mg, and 40 mg capsules.
You can safely buy Omeprazole from a UK regulated pharmacy, courtesy of Prescription Doctor. We understand the need for confidentiality when buying medicine online, which is why our pharmacy packages all items in discreet, tamper-proof packaging which gives no indication of the contents or where it came from. Order before 3pm, Monday to Friday, and our UK pharmacy will dispense and dispatch your medicine the same day, for a fast next-day delivery.
Heartburn is a primary symptom of GORD. It occurs when stomach acid flows back into the oesophagus. The backflow of acid has easy passage when the lower oesophageal sphincter relaxes and opens up.
The burning sensation in the chest that accompanies heartburn is uncomfortable and can be quite painful. If left untreated, frequently recurring heartburn may cause severe damage to the oesophageal tissue.
As a proton pump inhibitor, Omeprazole works by decreasing the amount of acid that the stomach produces. The drug inhibits the action of the cells in the lining of the stomach responsible for acid production.
The amount and frequency, as prescribed by your doctor, will depend on your condition. Always follow the doctor's prescription when taking Omeprazole.
The recommended dose, unless prescribed otherwise by your doctor is as follows:
To take, swallow one Omeprazole tablet in the morning with a glass of water. Omeprazole tablets can be taken with or without food.
The doctor may also increase or lower the dosage accordingly.
Before taking Omeprazole, we encourage you to familiarise yourself with the patient information leaflet (PIL) enclosed with your medicine. You should retain this document for future reference.

If you forget to take Omeprazole, do so as soon as you remember. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed dose. Skip the missed dose altogether if it's already nearly time for the next dose, and continue taking Omeprazole as you normally would.
Speak to your doctor or pharmacist right away if you accidentally take more than prescribed.
