Omeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) used to treat various acid-related stomach and/or throat (esophagus) problems (e.g., acid reflux or GERD, ulcers, erosive esophagitis, or Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome).

How To Use
  • Take Omeprazole by mouth, usually once daily, 15 to 30 minutes before a meal; or as directed by your doctor.
  • The dosage and length of treatment is based on your medical condition and response to therapy.
  • Do not crush, break or chew the medication.
  • Swallow the medication whole.
  • If you have difficulty swallowing Omeprazole whole, the capsule may be opened and the contents sprinkled onto cool applesauce and taken as directed.
  • Do not chew the food/medication mixture or prepare a supply in advance; this may destroy Omeprazole and/or increase side effects.
  • Drink a glass of cool water after each dose to ensure complete swallowing of the medication.
  • Potent acid-reducing medicines such as omeprazole can decrease the effectiveness of sucralfate, as well as other drugs such as the antifungals ketoconazole and itraconazole.
  • If instructed to take any of these drugs while taking omeprazole, consult your doctor or pharmacist regarding the proper timing of each dose.
  • For example, if you are instructed to take sucralfate in addition to omeprazole, it is best to take the omeprazole at least 30 minutes before your sucralfate.
  • Antacids may be taken along with Omeprazole, if needed.
  • Use Omeprazole regularly in order to get the most benefit from it.
  • Remember to use it at the same time each day.
  • Continue to take Omeprazole for the prescribed length of treatment even if you are feeling better.

Side Effects
  • Constipation, cough, dizziness or back pain may occur.
  • If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly.
  • An allergic reaction to Omeprazole is unlikely, but seek immediate medical attention if it occurs.
  • Symptoms of an allergic reaction include: rash, itching, swelling, severe dizziness, trouble breathing.
  • If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Precautions
  • Before using Omeprazole, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history, especially of: heartburn combined with lightheadedness or sweating or dizziness, chest pain or shoulder/jaw pain especially with shortness of breath, pain spreading to arms or neck or shoulders, unexplained weight loss, liver problems, other stomach problems (e.g., tumors), any allergies (including drug allergies).

  • Omeprazole should be used only when clearly needed during pregnancy.
  • Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor.
  • It is not known whether Omeprazole passes into breast milk.
  • Breast-feeding while using Omeprazole is not recommended.

Missed Dose
  • If you miss a dose, use it as soon as you remember.
  • If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule.
