Omesec 20 mg contains Omeprazole, which is an acid reducer drug. The medicine lowers the natural acid production in the stomach. Omeprazole, the active ingredient of the drug belongs to a family of drugs called proton pump inhibitors. Omesec may also be taken along with an antibiotic to prevent gastric ulcer due to infection with helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). This medication will, however, not give immediate relief from heartburn. This medication may also be prescribed or taken for diseases not described above.
Take care of all precautions and points mentioned on your prescription before taking Omesec 20 mg acid and discuss them with your doctor and clarify any doubts you may have about it.
Do not use over the counter Omeprazole 20 mg without medical advice if you have these problems: pain or trouble while swallowing, bloody or black stools, blood in vomit or vomit that looks like coffee grounds, heartburn that has persisted for over 3 months, frequent chest pain, heartburn accompanied by wheezing, unusual weight loss, nausea or vomiting, stomach pain, osteoporosis, or low bone mineral density.
Taking a proton pump inhibitor like Omesec may put you on a risk of bone fracture in the hip, wrist, or spine. This side effect has been observed in people who have taken the medication for a long time or at high doses, and in those who are 50 years of age or more. It is not known properly if Omeprazole is the actual reason behind the risk of bone fractures. Make sure to inform your doctor if you have osteoporosis or osteopenia (low bone mineral density).
Omeprazole is an FDA pregnancy category C drug which means it is not known to be harmful to an unborn baby if taken during pregnancy. Do let your doctor know about your pregnancy and any plans to become pregnant soon. Omesec 20 mg can pass into breast milk and harm a nursing baby. Do not take this medication without your doctor’s advice if you are breastfeeding.
Most common side effects of Omesec 40 mg may cause a drop in magnesium levels. Symptoms of low magnesium levels include confusion, irregular and fast heart rate, muscle movements, muscle cramps, cough, or choking, diarrhea, and dizziness. Discontinue treatment if you get any of these symptoms, please speak to your doctor. Some people may also get mild diarrhoea, stomach pain, upset stomach, stuffy nose, and cough.
Your doctor will fix omeprazole dosage after examining you properly. Dosage may depend on a range of factors like age, sex, drug allergies, or seriousness of the condition among several other factors. Stick to your doctor’s prescription strictly. Avoid crushing or chewing an Omeprazole tablet; swallow it whole. If you are unable to swallow an Omeprazole capsule, open it and put the medication into a spoonful of pudding, yogurt, or anything you like. Swallow the mixture of food and medication right away; don’t keep it for too long for later use. Store Omeprazole medication in a cool and dry place.
