Description
Esomeprazole contains a medicine called esomeprazole. This belongs to a group of medicines called ’proton pump inhibitors’. They work by reducing the amount of acid that your stomach produces. Esomeprazole is used to treat the following conditions:- Adults and adolescents aged 12 years and above:• Gastrooesophageal reflux disease(GERD). This is where acid from the stomach escapes into the gullet (the tube which connects your throat to your stomach) causing pain, inflammation and heartburn.• Ulcers in the stomach or upper part of the gut (intestine) that are infected with bacteria called ‘Helicobacter pylori’. If you have this condition, your doctor may also prescribe antibiotics to treat the infection and allow the ulcer to heal.
How to use
To treat heartburn caused by gastrooesophageal reflux disease (GORD): Adults and adolescents aged 12 years or above:• If your doctor has found that your food pipe (gullet) has been slightly damaged, the recommended dose is one tablet of Esomeprazole 40 mg once a day for 4 weeks. Your doctor may tell you to take the same dose for a further 4 weeks if your gullet has not yet healed.• The recommended dose once the gullet has healed is one tablet of Esomeprazole 20 mg once a day.• If your gullet has not been damaged, the recommended dose is one tablet of Esomeprazole 20 mg each day. Once the condition has been controlled, your doctor may tell you to take your medicine as and when you need it, up to a maximum of one tablet of Esomeprazole 20 mg each day.• If you have severe liver problems, your doctor may give you a lower dose.
