Esomeprazole Tablets

Esomeprazole is classified as PPIs (proton pump inhibitors) medication. The medication is useful in the treatment of oesophagus and stomach problems such as ulcers, hyper acidity, and acid reflux. It works by effectively reducing the level of acid the stomach produces hence relieving painful symptoms such as persistent coughing, heartburns, and difficulty swallowing.

For more information on the prescription medication patients should refer to the Esomeprazole patient information leaflet.

Esomeprazole works by effectively reducing the level of acidity and the amount of acid produced inside the stomach. It works by blocking certain systems in the cell walls of the stomach refer to as proton pump. The process impacts the final stages of acid production. Whenever the proton pump is effectively blocked, the stomach creates lesser acid. This helps acid reflux, hyper acidity, and certain ulcers.

Stomach pain can be debilitating and it precludes one from performing daily tasks. This is where the drug Esomeprazole comes in handy. It helps reduce acidity levels inside the stomach enabling lesser symptoms and pain for patients. Once treated, they are back to their daily activities in no time.
