You are buying 2 strips x 7 Milosec Capsules, each containing 20g Omeprazole
Omeprazole is a medication belonging to the “proton pump inhibitor” class.
It is typically used to treat symptoms of GORD, also known as gastro-oesophageal reflux disease. This is when stomach acid travels up into the tube that connects the throat to the stomach, giving a burning sensation. It can also leave an unpleasant taste in the back of the throat, which can burn.
How does omeprazole work?
Proton pumps located inside the stomach produce gastric acid in order to help digest food.
Excess stomach acid produced can cause unpleasant side-effects for many people, and omeprazole works by reducing the amount of acid secreted by the proton pumps.
This helps to relieve the effects of too much stomach acid, such as heartburn. Omeprazole also enables the food pipe to recover if it has been damaged by acid that has forced its way up into the throat.
You should take omeprazole once daily in the morning, around 30 minutes before your breakfast. Swallow one capsule whole with a full glass of water.
