UK Meds asked our favorite doctor, Dr. Christian Jessen, to explain Acid Reflux. Below is what he has to say.

Acid reflux, also known as indigestion, heartburn or gastroesophageal reflux disease is a very common condition which is characterised by a burning or gnawing pain, usually felt around the middle of the lower chest area. It's caused by acid escaping up into the esophagus from your stomach. Doctors would consider you to have acid reflux if you feel the symptoms of heartburn more than twice in a week.

While the lining of your stomach is adapted to protect it from the strong stomach acid, your esophagus is not. If the muscle which prevents acid leaking up from the stomach into your esophagus fails, the acid can irritate it causing pain, which is often felt just after having a meal.

There are a number of over the counter prescription medications which can help with the discomfort of acid reflux by reducing the amount of acid made in the stomach, such as Esomeprazole, Lansoprazole and Omeprazole, and you can find them here at UK Meds.

Generic Omeprazole - Losec and Prisolec

Omeprazole is the generic name of this medicine. It goes by the brands Losec and Prisolec. It is taken to treat diseases pertaining to Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, peptic ulcer, and gastro esophageal reflux disease or acid reflux. Its other uses are for treatment of upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Administering of the medication is done through oral and intravenous ways.

Acid Reflux Treatment

It is classified as a proton pump inhibitor. These are commonly found on the lining of the stomach. They are used by the cells they are in to manufacture acid in the stomach. The end result of the medication stems from its ability to restrain the proton pumps movement. In the end, this action produces less amount of acid in the stomach.

Excess stomach acid may result to symptoms of indigestion. Eventually, it prevents the flowback of the excess acid into the food pipe. This is the action that prevents heartburn from happening. Anybody with reflux knows how painful heartburn is. The prevention of the reflux action allows the esophagus or food pipe to recuperate from previous episodes.

Peptic ulcers have a chance to heal faster because of its ability to reduce acidity. It works well with antibiotics that kill the H pylori bacteria in the stomach by creating a cleaner lining. With a clean lining, antibiotics can zero in easily on the bacteria.

Does Omeprazole Work?

A good question to ask is how long does it take to start working? It all depends on the disease it is taken for. Indigestion and heartburn symptoms are dealt with in a matter of minutes to a couple of days. There are some diseases that require taking this drug for a few weeks. Then there are some cases in which the patient has to take it for a longer period. Long term cases need to do so to either keep the condition under control or prevent it from afflicting the patient again.

To this day, scientists, manufacturers and doctors have no sure way of telling if the medication is safe for pregnant women. 1979 was the year it was discovered. It is found in The World Health Organization List of Essential Medicines which forms the list of the most important medicines in basic health care. It is classified under ‘generic medication’.
