Omeprazole reduces the amount of acid produced in the stomach and is prescribed to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), gastric ulcers, and duodenal ulcers. It may also be used in conjunction with other medications to treat ulcers caused by an infection of the H. pylori (Helicobacter pylori) bacteria. Prescription strength omeprazole is not used for immediate relief of heartburn.

The omeprazole drug is dispensed as a capsule in dosage strengths of 10, 20, and 40mg. The medication is taken orally with water at least an hour before a meal, and dosing may be once or twice daily, depending on the condition being treated and the patient’s medical profile. Do not crush, chew, or split the omeprazole pills. If you are having difficulty swallowing a capsule, it may be opened and the granules sprinkled over a tablespoon of room temperature applesauce.

Prescription-strength omeprazole is not for the immediate relief of heartburn. Provide your doctor with your full medical history and a complete list of all medications, vitamins, and supplements you are taking. Tell your doctor if you have kidney disease or have low blood magnesium levels. Let your doctor know if you are of Asian ancestry. Taking omeprazole for an extended period may weaken the stomach lining. Those who take omeprazole in high doses for a year or longer have an increased risk of hip, wrist, or spine fractures.
