COMPOSITION:
Omeprazole-20 contains an enteric coated granule formulation of Omeprazole. Omeprazole is a substituted benzimidazole derivative.
 
MECHANISM OF ACTION:
Omeprazole is a Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI) that suppresses gastric acid secretion by specific inhibition of the H+/K+-ATPase in the gastric parietal cell. By acting specifically on the proton pump, omeprazole blocks the final step in acid production, thus reducing gastric acidity.
 
INDICATIONS:
Indicated for hyperacidity and GERD (Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease).
 
CONTRAINDICATIONS:
Contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to substituted benzimidazoles or to any component of the formulation.
 
DRUG INTERCATIONS:
Elimination of escitalopram, and warfarin may increase if they are used concomitantly with omeprazole. Omeprazole has the potential to partly inhibit the metabolism of drugs metabolised to a great extent by the cytochrome P450 enzyme (phenytoin, diazepam)

Omimac-20 is well tolerated. Nausea, headache, diarrhoea, constipation, stomach pain, flatulence have been reported occasionally.
