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).
i took these capsules to help with other medication that i was taking it helped with any side affects from my anti inflammatory. But i no longer take any of the meds that i needed them for .
I took Omeprazole for years and then two years ago i found i was diabetic so i completely changed my life style and diet and i didn't need Omeprazole anymore in fact it made me feel ill.
