COMPOSITION:
Each capsule contains:
Omeprazole
I.P.
20 mg
(as enteric-coated pellets)
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-oesophagal Reflux Disease).
CONTRAINDICATIONS:
Contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to substituted benzimidazoles or to any component of the formulation.
DRUG INTERACTIONS:
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)
SIDE EFFECTS:
Omimac-20 is well tolerated. Nausea, headache, diarrhoea, constipation, stomach pain, flatulence have been reported occasionally.
DOSAGE:
As prescribed by the physician.
