What Omeprazole Healthkern is and what it is used for

Omeprazole Healthkern contains omeprazole as the active substance. It belongs to a group of medicines called "proton pump inhibitors". These drugs work by reducing the amount of acid produced by the stomach.

Omeprazole Healthker is indicated in adults for the short-term treatment of reflux symptoms (eg, burning, acid regurgitation).

Reflux is the rise of acid from the stomach into the esophagus, which can become swollen and painful. This can cause symptoms such as a painful burning sensation in the chest that rises to the throat (burning) and a sour taste in the mouth (acid regurgitation).

You may have to take the capsules for 2-3 consecutive days to improve symptoms.

You should see a doctor if it gets worse or does not improve after 14 days.

How to take Omeprazole Healthkern

Always take this medicine exactly as described in this leaflet or as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. If in doubt, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

The recommended dose is one 20 mg capsule once a day for 14 days. Contact your doctor if symptoms do not disappear after this time.

You may have to take the capsules for 2-3 consecutive days to improve symptoms.

How to take this medicine

It is recommended to take the capsules in the morning.

You can take your capsules with food or on an empty stomach.

Swallow the capsules whole with half a glass of water. Do not chew or crush the capsules as they contain coated granules that prevent the medicine from breaking down due to the action of stomach acid. It is important not to damage the granules. These granules contain omeprazole as an active ingredient and have an enteric coating that protects them and prevents them from breaking when they pass through the stomach. The granules release the active ingredient in the intestine, where it is absorbed by the body to obtain an effect.

What to do if you have trouble swallowing the capsules

If you have trouble swallowing the capsules:

Open the capsules and swallow the contents directly with half a glass of water or pour the contents into a glass of still water, an acidic fruit juice (eg apple, orange or pineapple) or applesauce.

Always shake the mixture just before drinking it (the mixture will not be transparent). Then drink the mixture immediately or within 30 minutes.

To make sure all the medicine has been taken, fill the glass of water halfway, rinse it well, and drink the water. Do not use milk or sparkling water. The solid parts contain the medicine; do not chew or crush them.


If you take more Omeprazole Healthkerndel than you should

If you have taken more omerpazole than recommended, immediately consult your doctor or pharmacist.

If you forget to take Omeprazole Healthkern

If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if there is little time left for the next shot, skip the missed dose. Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose.
