Losec Control 20mg gastro-resistant tablets help you tackle and relieve heartburn and acid reflux.
The tablets, which contain the active substance omeprazole, are classed as ‘proton pump inhibitors’. This means they work by reducing the amount of acid that your stomach produces. Gastro-resistant tablets are designed to temporarily withstand attack by stomach acid, and so they release their active ingredient in your intestine.
You can use Losec Control for the short-term treatment of reflux symptoms. Reflux is caused by the flow of acid from the stomach back into your gullet or foodpipe, which can become inflamed and painful, leading to a burning sensation in your chest or a sour taste in your mouth.
It might be necessary to take Losec tablets for 2 or 3 consecutive days to improve your symptoms.
