What is Omeprazole?

Omeprazole is a medication used to treat stomach conditions associated with an excess of stomach acid including acid reflux. 

How does it work?

Omeprazole is a medication called a proton pump inhibitor. Proton pumps are responsible for producing stomach acid. When there is an excess of acid in the stomach it causes problems in the gut including heartburn and acid reflux. By prohibiting the proton pumps, less acid will be made and the symptoms of heartburn and acid reflux will be reduced.
