Prilosec (Omeprazole) is one of the drugs referred to as proton pump inhibitors. The drug is used in order to oppress excessive acidity and reduce gastric juices peculiar for such conditions as GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), Ellison-Zollinger syndrome, peptic ulcer, laryngopharingeal reflux, and some other conditions as indicated by your prescriber.

Prilosec is appointed for patients with the following ailments:
Peptic ulcer and duodenal ulcers, peptic ulcer (stomach ulcer, intestine or esophagus, which developed as a result of the destructive action of gastric juices on the mucous) caused by Helicobacterpylori (microorganisms, which under certain conditions can cause gastritis or relapsed / periodically repeating / stomach ulcers);
Reflux esophagitis (inflammation of the esophagus resulting from throwing gastric contents into the esophagus);
Zollinger-Ellison syndrome (a combination of stomach ulcers and benign tumors of the pancreas).
How It Works?
Prilosec inhibits the secretion of hydrochloric acid in the stomach, the inhibitor a "proton pump" (substance that irreversibly blocks the hydrogen/potassium adenosine triphosphatase enzyme system).
Antisecretory action mechanism of Prilosec is related to the inhibition (activity suppression) of the hydrogen/potassium adenosine triphosphatase enzyme system (an enzyme which accelerates the exchange of hydrogen ions) in the membranes of cells of the gastric mucosa, which leads to blocking of the final stage of the formation of hydrochloric acid. This reduces the basal level secretion and stimulated secretion (digestive juices), regardless of the nature of the stimulus.
Prilosec action occurs rapidly and is dose dependent. After a single dose of 0.02g omeprazole effect lasts for 24 hours.
How It Is Taken?
At an exacerbation of peptic ulcer and reflux esophagitis the drug is prescribed at a dose of 0.02g once in the morning (before breakfast). The capsules should be swallowed whole with a little liquid.
The duration of treatment for duodenal ulcer is usually 2 weeks. In those patients in whom complete healing has not occurred after 2 weeks of treatment, healing usually occurs over the next two-week's treatment period.
In patients with poor regenerating ability of duodenal ulcer it is recommended to prescribe a dose of omeprazole 0.04g once a day, which allows for healing within 4 weeks.
To prevent a recurrence (reappearance of signs of disease) of duodenal ulcer 0.01g of the drug is appointed to be taken once a day. If necessary, the dose may be increased up to 0.02-0.04g at a single daily dose.
To prevent a recurrence of gastric ulcers in patients with poor regenerating ability it is recommended to prescribe the drug at a monodose of 0.02g per day.
The duration of treatment for stomach ulcers is usually four weeks. Incomplete scarring requires for spending additional four weeks of treatment. Patients with poor regenerating ability of the stomach ulcers are encouraged to take omeprazole 0.04g per day, which will secure the scarring of the tissues within eight weeks.
In peptic ulcer associated with Helicobacterpylori omeprazole is administered at a daily dose of 0.04-0.08g in combination with amoxicillin at 1.5-3g in divided doses for two weeks. If, after a two-week course complete scarring of the ulcer is not marked, the treatment is prolonged for two more weeks.
In patients with reflux esophagitis omeprazole administered in a daily dose of 0.02g; the course of treatment is four to five weeks. In severe reflux esophagitis daily dose can be increased up to 0.04g, and the treatment extended to eight weeks. For long-term treatment of patients with reflux esophagitis it is recommended to use a single dose of 0.01g per day. If necessary, the dose may be increased up to 0.02-0.04g once a day.
With Zollinger-Ellison syndrome the recommended initial dose is 0.06g per day at a single reception. If necessary, the dose was increased to 0.08-0.12g per day, in which case it is divided into two doses. The duration of treatment is determined individually.
