Product Details


Introduction :

Omeprazole 20mg capsules is used to treat certain conditions where there is too much acid in the stomach. Omeprazole 20mg capsules are used to treat gastric and duodenal ulcers, erosive esophagitis, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). GERD is a condition where the acid in the stomach washes back up into the esophagus. Sometimes omeprazole is used in combination with antibiotics (eg, amoxicillin, clarithromycin) to treat ulcers associated with the infection caused by the H. pylori bacteria. Omeprazole20mg capsules is also used to treat Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, a condition where the stomach produces too much acid. Omeprazole is also used to treat dyspepsia, a condition that causes sour stomach, belching, heart burn, or indigestion. This medicine is available both over-the-counter (OTC) and with your doctors prescription.

Mechanism of Action :

Omeprazole is a selective and irreversible [30] proton pump inhibitor. Omeprazole suppresses gastric acid secretion by specific inhibition of the hydrogen?potassium adenosinetriphosphatase (H +, K +-ATPase) enzyme system found at the secretory surface of parietal cells . It inhibits the final transport of hydrogen ions (via exchange with potassium ions) into the gastric lumen. Since the H +, K +-ATPase enzyme system is regarded as the acid (proton) pump of the gastric mucosa, omeprazole is known as a gastric acid pump inhibitor.
