ZEGERID (OMEPRAZOLE/SODIUM BICARBONATE)

Prescription Strength Zegerid

Zegerid is a combination proton pump inhibitor/antacid medication that works to reduce acid production in the stomach. It should be taken once a day, by mouth. It also sells as a generic, under the name Omeprazole/Sodium Bicarbonate. You will need a valid prescription to buy Zegerid. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How Zegerid Helps with Excess Stomach Acid

Zegerid contains Omeprazole, a type of medicine called a proton pump inhibitor. Proton pumps are found on cells that line the stomach and are used by these cells to produce stomach acid. When taken as prescribed, Omeprazole inhibits the action of these proton pumps to reduce the production of stomach acid. Zegerid also contains Sodium Bicarbonate, an antacid that reduces stomach acid and helps Omeprazole to work better.

Conditions Treated by Zegerid

Zegerid is used to treat a number of medical conditions where reduction in acid secretion is required for proper healing, including gastric and duodenal ulcers, the prevention and treatment of ulcers associated with medications known as NSAIDs, and for Zollinger-Ellison syndrome (ZES), a rare condition that causes tumors and ulcers in your stomach, intestines, and sometimes on your liver or pancreas. This is not a cure for ZES, but can reduce your discomfort and prevent the spread of tumors.

Omeprazole/Sodium Bicarbonate may also be prescribed along with antibiotic medication to treat ulcers associated with H. pylori bacteria or to prevent upper gastrointestinal tract bleeding in patients who are seriously ill.

Zegerid is often prescribed as part of the treatment for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), which develops when excess stomach acids washes back up into the esophagus. Heartburn is the most common symptom of this condition, but you may also notice chest pain, nausea, and hoarseness in the throat. There is no cure, but Zegerid can help by blocking the processes that creates stomach acid.

Before You Take Zegerid

Ask your doctor if Zegerid is safe to take if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Be sure to let your doctor know if you require a low-sodium diet, as Zegerid may not be right for you. Advise your doctor of any liver, kidney, heart, respiratory disease and other medical conditions you have and list all OTC and Rx drugs, herbal remedies, and dietary or vitamin supplements you take or use to determine if Zegerid is right for you.

Precautions for Zegerid

Tell your doctor immediately if you experience watery or bloody stools during treatment with Zegerid; these could signal a new infection and may need further treatment. Keep all medications out of children’s reach and never share them with others. It may take 24 hours after starting Zegerid before you notice an improvement in your symptoms.
