How Does Omeprazole Work?

Answer

Omeprazole is used to treat gastro oesophageal reflux disease (GERD), H. pylori infections, certain ulcers, and other conditions, by decreasing the amount of acid in your stomach. Omeprazole is part of a group of medications called proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). The stomach contains tiny pumps (called proton pumps) that produce acid. The medication works by binding to these proton pumps, stopping the production of acid and it is very effective at decreasing acid production.
