Scientific Name

  • Omeprazole 20 Mg Capsules

Category Of Aciloc 20 Mg Capsules

  • Heartburn Drugs

Mechanism Of Action Of Omeprazole

  • Hydrochloric acid (HCl) secretion into the gastric lumen is a process regulated mainly by the H (+)/K (+)-ATPase of the proton pump, expressed in high quantities by the parietal cells of the stomach.
  • proton pump inhibitor that inhibits the secretion of gastric acid by irreversibly blocking the enzyme system of hydrogen/potassium (H+/K+-exchanging ATPase), the “proton pump” of the gastric parietal cell.
  • Omeprazole is a member of a class called “proton pump inhibitors”

Therapeutic Indications Of Aciloc 20 Mg Capsules

  • Duodenal ulcers (a sore that forms at the beginning of your small intestine)
  • H Pylori eradication (bacteria that can live in your gut and cause ulcers) to prevent recurrence of duodenal ulcers
  • Benign gastric ulcer (a non-cancerous sore that forms in your stomach)
  • NSAID-associated ulcer (sore that forms in your gut due to excessive use of NSAIDs)
  • GERD (acid reflux also known as “heartburn”): is the backflow of acid from the stomach into the gullet (“food pipe”) which may become inflamed and painful. This may cause your symptoms such as a painful sensation in the chest rising to your throat (heartburn) and a sour taste in the mouth (acid regurgitation).
  • Erosive esophagitis (acid irritation injuring the esophagus): inflammation that may damage tissues of the esophagus, the muscular tube that delivers food from your mouth to your stomach. Esophagitis can cause painful, difficult swallowing and chest pain.
  • Pathological hyper-secretory conditions (problems in the gut that cause excessive acid production)
