Omeprazole functions by irreversibly blocking the stomach lining’s enzyme system known as proton pumps. This blockade significantly reduces stomach acid production, giving the stomach and esophagus time to heal from acid-caused injuries.



Losec, also known by its generic name omeprazole, is part of the proton pump inhibitor (PPI) class of medications. It is primarily used for treating gastrointestinal conditions related to acid, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), stomach ulcers, and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. Losec works by decreasing the amount of acid produced in the stomach, thus providing relief from symptoms and allowing healing to occur in damaged tissues.

Additional information



● Treatment of GERD and other conditions where a reduction in acid production is required.
● Management of duodenal and gastric ulcers.
● Long-term treatment of conditions requiring acid suppression like Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.

Patients should:

● Take Losec as directed by their healthcare provider, typically once daily before a meal.
● Swallow the capsules whole with water, without crushing or chewing them.
● Understand that it may take several days to feel the medication's full benefit.


● Losec is available in capsule form, which should be taken orally and preferably on an empty stomach.


● Losec might mask the symptoms of gastric cancer and thus could delay diagnosis; hence, proper evaluation is recommended if symptoms persist.
● Not typically recommended for immediate relief of heartburn symptoms.
● Long-term use may be associated with a slight increase in risk for bone fractures, stomach infections, and vitamin B12 deficiency.
