Omeprazolum uses and description

Sort by popularity
Omeprazolum - Pharmacology: Suppresses gastric acid secretion by blocking acid (proton) pump within gastric parietal cell.

Indication: Short-term treatment of active duodenal ulcer; in combination with clarithromycin and amoxicillin to eradicate Helicobacter pylori ; in combination with clarithromycin to eradicate H. pylori ; short-term treatment of active benign gastric ulcer; treatment of heartburn and other symptoms associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD); short-term treatment of erosive esophagitis that has been diagnosed by endoscopy; maintenance of healing of erosive esophagitis; long-term treatment of pathological hypersecretory conditions (eg, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, multiple endocrine adenomas, systemic mastocytosis).

Nonprescription

Treatment of frequent heartburn that occurs 2 or more times per week.

Unlabeled Uses

As alternate-day therapy in maintaining ulcer or GERD remission rates during long-term treatment after healing during a short course of therapy; treatment of GERD-related laryngitis symptoms in patients who have not responded to antireflux measures alone; treatment of GERD in infants and children; in combination with antibiotics (eg, amoxicillin, clarithromycin) for eradication of H. pylori in children; to improve enzyme absorption in cystic fibrosis patients with intestinal malabsorption.

Omeprazolum is an inhibitor of H+ K+ ATPase. This medication inhibits the activity of H+-K+-ATPase in gastric parietal cells and thus blocks the final stage of hydrochloric acid secretion. This leads to a reduction in basal and stimulated secretion, regardless of the nature of the stimulus. Due to the reduction of acid secretion Omeprazolum reduces or normalizes the effects of acid in the esophagus in patients with reflux esophagitis.

Omeprazolum has a bactericidal effect on Helicobacter pylori. Eradication of H. pylori when Omeprazolum used with antibiotics allows to quickly arrest the symptoms, to take a high degree of healing of damaged mucosa and persistent long-term remission and reduce the likelihood of bleeding from the gastrointestinal tract.

Omeprazolum is a compound that inhibits gastric acid secretion and is indicated in the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), the healing of erosive esophagitis, and H. pylori eradication to reduce the risk of duodenal ulcer recurrence. Omeprazolum belongs to a new class of antisecretory compounds, the substituted benzimidazoles, that do not exhibit anticholinergic or H2 histamine antagonistic properties, but that suppress gastric acid secretion by specific inhibition of the H ATPase at the secretory surface of the gastric parietal cell. As a result, it inhibits acid secretion into the gastric lumen. This effect is dose-related and leads to inhibition of both basal and stimulated acid secretion irrespective of the stimulus.

Omeprazolum is a gastric medicine. It is used to treat conditions caused by excessive acidity in your stomach, such as stomach ulcers and reflux disease (reflux is also known as "heartburn", in which food or acid from your stomach backs up into your mouth, leaving a sour or bitter taste). Omeprazolum treats these conditions by reducing the amount of acid your stomach makes. Omeprazolum may also be used together with other medicines to treat a specific type of gastric problem called Helicobacter pylori or H. pylori gastritis.
