In medical practice, a fairly wide range of drugs of different pharmacological groups is used, with which the stomach ulcer is treated. Omez - the name of the drug, derived from the active substance Omeprazole. This is a relatively new drug designed to neutralize excess hydrochloric acid in the digestive juice. The therapeutic effect is activated after 30-45 minutes after taking the drug and lasts for 24 hours.
Usually, Omega has no pronounced negative effects, but, as with any pharmacological drug, it is necessary to consult a specialist about the advisability of using it. In the pharmacy network, the medicine is available in the form of capsules for oral administration and in powder form in glass vials for the preparation of intravenous solutions. The proton pump inhibitor - Omez in the ulcer acts at the level of the parietal cells of the mucosal epithelium and blocks the secretion of hydrochloric acid. Thus, alkalization of the digestive juice occurs and a neutral pH inside the stomach is mainta
ined. In such conditions scarring of erosive defects occurs quickly and thoroughly.
The drug has been repeatedly subjected to clinical testing and has the greatest number of positive results. Treatment of a stomach ulcer with Omega almost always has a positive effect. Patients note that after three days after the first intake of the drug pains pass in the epigastric region and cease to torment heartburn. Fifteen days after the prescribed therapy, clinical tests and examination show the initial stage of scarring of erosions. Two months later, full overgrowth of the lesions occurs.

Usually, with the ulcer of the stomach, the drug is administered in the form of capsules, but if necessary, the physician prescribes the intravenous form of the medication. The injections can be done only by a qualified specialist.
