Product Description

What Omeprazole 20mg Capsules are and what they are used for

Omeprazole 20 mg Capsules contain the active substance omeprazole. It belongs to a group of medicines called proton pump inhibitors. They work by reducing the amount of acid that your stomach produces. Omeprazole 20mg Capsules are used to treat the following conditions:

In adults:

  • Gastro-oesophageal reflux diseas (GORD). This is where acid from the stomach escapes into the gullet (the tube which connects your throat to your stomach) causing pain, inflammation and heartburn.
  • Ulcers in the upper part of the intestine (duodenal ulcer) or stomach (gastric ulcer).
  • Ulcers which are infected with bacteria called ˜Helicobacter pylori. If you have this condition, your doctor may also prescribe antibiotics to treat the infection and allow the ulcer to heal.
  • Ulcers caused by medicines called NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs). Omeprazole 20 mg Capsules can also be used to stop ulcers from forming if you are taking NSAIDs.
  • Too much acid in the stomach caused by a growth in the pancreas (Zollinger-Ellison syndrome).

In children:

Children over 1 year of age and 10 kg

  • Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD). This is where acid from the stomach escapes into the gullet (the tube which connects your throat to your stomach) causing pain, inflammation and heartburn.
    In children, the symptoms of the condition can include the return of stomach contents into the mouth (regurgitation), being sick (vomiting) and poor weight gain.

Children and adolescents over 4 years of age

  • Ulcers which are infected with bacteria called ˜Helicobacter pylori. If your child has this condition, your doctor may also prescribe antibiotics to treat the infection and allow the ulcer to heal.

2. What you need to know before you take Omeprazole 20mg Capsules

Do not take Omeprazole 20mg Capsules:

  • If you are allergic (hypersensitive) to omeprazole or any of the other ingredients of Omeprazole 20mg Capsules (listed in section 6)
  • If you are allergic to medicines containing other proton pump inhibitors (e.g. pantoprazole, lansoprazole, rabeprazole, esomeprazole)
  • If you are taking a medicine containing nelfinavir (used for HIV infection).

If you are not sure, talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking Omeprazole 20mg Capsules.

Warnings and precautions

Omeprazole may hide the symptoms of other diseases. Therefore, if any of the following happen to you before you start taking Omeprazole 20mg Capsules or while you are taking them, talk to your doctor straightaway:

  • You get stomach pain or indigestion.
  • You begin to vomit food or vomit blood.
  • You pass black stools (blood-stained faeces).
  • You experience severe or persistent diarrhoea, as omeprazole has been associated with a small increase in infectious diarrhoea.
  • You have severe liver problems.
  • You have ever had a skin reaction after treatment with a medicine similar to Omeprazole that reduces stomach acid.

Taking a proton pump inhibitor like Omeprazole, especially over a period of more than one year, may slightly increase your risk of fracture in the hip, wrist or spine. Tell your doctor if you have osteoporosis or if you are taking corticosteroids (which can increase the risk of osteoporosis).

If you take Omeprazole 20mg Capsules on a long-term basis (longer than 1 year) your doctor will probably keep you under regular surveillance. You should report any new and exceptional symptoms and circumstances whenever you see your doctor.

If you get a rash on your skin, especially in areas exposed to the sun tell your doctor as soon as you can as you may need to stop your treatment with Omeprazole. Remember to also mention any other ill-effects like pain in your joints.

Tell your doctor before taking this medicine if you are due to have a specific blood test (Chromogranin A).
