    Omeprazole + Sodium Bicarbonte

    Used For

    Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

    How it works

    Omeprazole reduces gastric acid secretion through a unique mechanism of action. Omeprazole belongs to a class of anti-secretory compounds - the substituted benzimidazoles that do not exhibit anti-cholinergic or H2 histamine antagonistic properties. It inhibits secretion of gastric acid by irreversibly blocking the enzyme system of hydrogen/potassium adenosine triphosphatase (H+/K+ATPase), the proton pump of the gastric parietal cell. This effect is dose-related and leads to inhibition of both basal and stimulated acid secretion irrespective of the stimulus.
