Omeprazole is a drug belonging to the collection of drugs named proton pump inhibitors. This drug is generally known by patients as a stomach protector, but that is not really its function.
This drug happens to be used in the gastrointestinal lesions treatment or symptoms, those diseases due to gastroesophageal reflux. This gastrointestinal syndrome occurs when the backward flow of gastric contents from the stomach causes heartburn and can even lead to lesions in the esophagus.
Reflux is the rise in stomach acid that can lead to inflammation and pain. Symptoms are an itchy sensation in the chest that rises to the throat, recognised as sweltering pain, and a tart taste in the mouth or acid vomiting. You can order a omeprazole from UK Meds.
Before continuing, remember that the consumption of medications must be prescribed by a doctor and it is advisable to read the leaflet.
Its intake helps the esophageal mucosa to heal and prevents injuries to it. Its most common use is to reduce the production of acid in the stomach, since in excess it can cause gastric reflux and lead to annoying symptoms such as a burning sensation. If the excess of acids is not controlled, it can even lead to a stomach ulcer, injury to the stomach or intestinal lining.
It is recommended for use with a prescription, especially for the treatment of ulcers. These are produced mainly by a type of bacteria known as ‘Helicobacter pylori’.
Helicobater pylori is a bacterium that lives in the stomach and duodenum and is linked to the appearance of stomach diseases, such as gastritis and peptic ulcers. Likewise, it increases the possibility of suffering a gastric and even duodenal ulcer (injury to the mucosa that protects the stomach and intestine). If the affected patient does not undergo good treatment, it can lead to serious diseases such as gastric cancer.
