Omeprazole

 

Omeprazole is used to treat certain stomach and esophagus problems (such as acid reflux, ulcers). It works by decreasing the amount of acid your stomach makes. It relieves symptoms such as heartburn, difficulty swallowing, and persistent cough. This medication helps heal acid damage to the stomach and esophagus, helps prevent ulcers, and may help prevent cancer of the esophagus. Omeprazole belongs to a class of drugs known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs).

Served its purpose well due to a discomfort in the stomach and took pain away. Stayed on it for a month or two and whilst I had my surgery. Afterwards though I came off it due to my being on B12 injections as read leaflet that it could affect the B12. I was also no longer on any strong medication.

Since prescribed Nexium for hiatus hernia l've had no side effects. I had previously tried other brands but found the bulking agent added to the esomeprazole released too quickly which did not control my acid reflux.
