Omeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor or antacid. It is used for the treatment of several conditions of the stomach and oesophagus resulting from too much acid in the stomach. Omeprazole is typically used to treat frequent heartburn and gastro oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) and is available under a range of brand names including Losec and Prilosec.
You can buy Omeprazole in 10 mg, 20 mg, and 40 mg capsules from Prescription Doctor's UK regulated pharmacy.
We understand the need for confidentiality when buying Omeprazole 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. Place your 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 acid reflux and GORD. It occurs when stomach acid flows back into the oesophagus, resulting in a burning sensation in the chest. The backflow of acid has easy passage if the lower oesophageal sphincter is weakened, which means it easily relaxes and opens up.
Acid reflux can be quite painful and uncomfortable. If left untreated, frequently recurring acid reflux may cause severe damage to the oesophageal tissue.
Symptoms of heartburn include:
While acid reflux itself is not a serious condition, stomach acid can damage the cells in the oesophagus which carries risks of further complications, such as Barrett's oesophagus. Speak to your doctor if you are concerned about developing Barrett's oesophagus as a result of chronic GORD.
There are steps you can take to prevent heartburn from developing, such as:
Other possible causes of heartburn include:
If you suspect a medication you are taking is causing acid reflux, speak to your doctor or ask a pharmacist for advice. They may be able to prescribe or recommend a heartburn treatment for you, like Omeprazole.
Omeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) that blocks cells in the lining of the stomach, which reduces the amount of acid produced in the stomach.
By reducing the amount of acid produced by the stomach, Omeprazole reduces the chances of acid reflux occurring.
Your doctor will determine a suitable starting dose of Omeprazole for you and how frequently you should take it.
Always follow the doctor's prescription when taking Omeprazole.
The recommended dose, unless prescribed otherwise by your doctor, is as follows:
You should take Omeprazole in the morning, with or without food.
Omeprazole capsules should be swallowed whole with a glass of water.
The doctor may increase or lower the dosage depending on how you respond to the treatment.
If you forget to take Omeprazole when you should, take it as soon as you remember.
Do not take more Omeprazole 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 prescribed.
Speak to your doctor or pharmacist right away if you accidentally take more Omeprazole than prescribed.
Taking more Omeprazole than you should is unlikely to treat your condition any more effectively, but may increase your risk of side effects.
If you are unsure how much Omeprazole you should take, ask your doctor or consult the patient information leaflet.
Before taking Omeprazole, we encourage you to read the patient information leaflet (PIL) enclosed with your medicine.
The patient information leaflet contains important information about taking and storing Omeprazole, including a complete list of side effects, ingredients, and instructions on what to do in the case you experience an allergic reaction.
Do not take Omeprazole if you are allergic to any of the ingredients used to make Omeprazole, or are allergic to any other medication belonging to the proton pump inhibitor (PPI) class, such as lansoprazole.
Signs of an allergic reaction may include:
Omeprazole may not be suitable for you. If you are unsure whether this medicine is safe for you, ask one of our doctors or a qualified pharmacist for advice.
Do not take Omeprazole if you are currently on any medication containing nelfinavir.
Omeprazole may affect the effectiveness of other medicines. Ensure that you speak to your doctor about any medication you are currently taking, including those bought over-the-counter, on prescription, and health or dietary supplements.
If you are pregnant, think you might be pregnant, or plan on becoming pregnant soon, speak to your doctor or a pharmacist for advice on whether the benefits of this medicine outweigh any potential risks posed to you or your unborn child.
Inform our doctor if you are breastfeeding, so they can determine whether this medicine is safe for you.
All medicines carry the potential risk of side effects, though not everybody gets them. Before you begin your treatment with any medicine, you should familiarise yourself with the side effects listed in the patient information leaflet (PIL) enclosed with your medicine.

It is very unlikely that Omeprazole will affect your ability to drive or operate machinery. Do not do either if you experience dizziness, blurred vision, or any other side effect that may affect your judgement.
While it is unlikely that alcohol will react with Omeprazole, you should avoid, or limit alcohol consumption as it may worsen heartburn.
Omeprazole is unlikely to affect hormonal contraceptives, including the emergency contraceptive.
However, if Omeprazole makes you sick and you vomit, your protection may be reduced.
If you vomit after taking Omeprazole, check the patient information leaflet supplied with your contraceptive pill for instructions on what to do.
Omeprazole starts to work within 2 or 3 days of taking it. However, it can take up to 4 weeks for Omeprazole to reach its maximum effectiveness.
Taking Omeprazole - or any other proton pump inhibitor - for longer than 1 year may increase your risk of fracture to the wrist, hip or spine.
If you have any concerns about taking Omeprazole for a long period, speak to your doctor or ask a pharmacist for advice.
You should speak to your doctor before ceasing treatment with Omeprazole. Stopping treatment for acid reflux may cause your symptoms to come back.
You can take Omeprazole with antacids like Gaviscon. However, you should leave at least 2 hours between taking Omeprazole and an antacid.
If you are unsure whether you can take Omeprazole alongside another medication, speak to your doctor or a pharmacist for advice.
Constipation is listed as a side effect of Omeprazole.
If you experience constipation while taking Omeprazole, speak to your doctor or a pharmacist for advice on what you can do.
Keeping hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day can help to prevent constipation.
