Ingredients

  • ESOMEPRAZOLE 40mg

How do I take/use this medicine?

Take Esomeprazole exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not take more or less than instructed by your doctor.

You may need to take Esomeprazole for some time before the full benefits can be felt. Continue to take it even when you feel better and do not stop taking it unless advised by your doctor to do so.

The Esomeprazole tablet may be taken with or without food. If you have trouble swallowing, it may also be dispersed in half a glass of non-carbonated ("non-fizzy") water. Do not use other types of liquids to disperse the tablet. Stir gently until the tablet dissolves into little pellets. Drink the liquid with the pellets immediately or within 30 minutes. Rinse the glass with half a glass of water and drink this to ensure that no medicine is left behind in the glass. Do not chew or crush the tablet or the pellets.

What should I take note of while using/taking this medicine?

Inform your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Do not breastfeed while you are being treated with Esomeprazole.

Alert your doctor if you have liver disease.

Let your doctor know if your gastric problem seems to be getting worse. Do not take Esomeprazole for a long period of time unless instructed by your doctor.

When should I not use this medicine?

Inform your doctor if you have ever had an allergic reaction to other gastric medicines such as omeprazole, lansoprazole, pantoprazole or rabeprazole.

Are there any restrictions on the type of food I can take?

It may be helpful to discuss your diet with your doctor or dietitian. A change in diet may help improve your symptoms. For example, spicy food tends to worsen reflux and should be avoided. Likewise, carbonated ("fizzy") drinks such as soft drinks should also be avoided.

You should also try to avoid lying down soon after eating as this will worsen the reflux symptoms.

Avoid alcohol.

Why do I need this medicine?

Esomeprazole is a gastric medicine.

It is used to treat conditions caused by excessive acidity in your stomach, such as stomach ulcers and reflux disease (reflux is also known as "heartburn", in which food or acid from your stomach backs up into your mouth, leaving a sour or bitter taste).

Esomeprazole treats these conditions by reducing the amount of acid your stomach makes.

Esomeprazole may also be used together with other medicines to treat a specific type of gastric problem called Helicobacter pylori or H. pylori gastritis.

What side effects could I experience?

Esomeprazole may cause dizziness. If you feel dizzy, do not drive or take part in any activity in which you need to be alert.

Other side effects with Esomeprazole may include headache, diarrhoea, nausea and wind in the stomach. These should get better or go away as your body adjusts to the medicine.

Let your doctor know if these side effects bother you or if they do not go away.

How should I store this medicine?

Store in a cool, dry place away from the reach of children.

Medicines must not be used past the expiry date.

Can I take/use this with other medicines?

Inform your doctor if you are taking any other medicines, especially those listed here:

- warfarin (a blood-thinning medicine)
- ketoconazole, itraconazole, voriconazole or similar antifungal medicines
- diazepam (used as a mood medicine or sleeping pill)
- other medicines such as atazanavir and iron pills.

Alert your doctor if you are taking a blood-thinning medicine called clopidogrel.

Do not take antacids together with Esomeprazole. If you must take antacids, take them at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after you have taken Esomeprazole. Antacids can reduce the effectiveness of Esomeprazole when taken together.

Always inform your doctor and pharmacist if you are taking any other medicines, including herbal tonics, supplements and medicines that you buy without a prescription.
