Buy omeprazole gastro-resistant capsules online

Omeprazole capsules are an effective treatment for GORD and its symptoms, easing heartburn and acid reflux by reducing excess stomach acid. These gastro-resistant capsules are broken down slowly, releasing your medication gradually for 24-hour symptom relief. If you need a reliable remedy for your chronic acid reflux, omeprazole could be the perfect treatment for you.


How omeprazole relieves symptoms of GORD

Omeprazole relieves the symptoms of GORD, such as heartburn, by reducing the amount of stomach acid you produce. This helps to prevent the ‘backflow’ of excess stomach acid into your food pipe that causes your symptoms. It also helps to reduce the damage done to your food pipe by stomach acid, giving it time to heal and easing symptoms like a cough or sore throat in the process. Omeprazole can also be used to treat stomach or duodenal ulcers, which can be caused by an excess of stomach acid.



Take your omeprazole capsules in the morning either with food or on an empty stomach. Swallow the capsules whole, with a glass of water if needed.






Children and adolescents

To treat symptoms of GORD if the food pipe has been slightly damaged

20mg once a day for 4-8 weeks. If the damage has not healed after this time your prescriber may recommend a 40mg dose once a day for up to 8 weeks.

Suitable for children older than 1 year who weigh more than 10kg. The dose is to be determined by the prescriber.

To treat symptoms of GORD where the food pipe has not been damaged or when it  has recovered

10mg once a day.

Suitable for children older than 1 year who weigh more than 10kg. The dose is to be determined by the prescriber.

20mg once a day for 2-4 weeks. If your ulcers have not healed after this time your prescriber may recommend a 40mg dose once a day for 4 weeks.


To treat ulcers in the stomach

Frequently Asked Questions

You may have heard of both GERD and GORD.

These are both the exact same condition: GERD stands for gastroesophageal reflux disease and GORD stands for gastro-oesophageal reflux disease.

The difference is down to the British spelling of oesophagus compared to the American spelling, esophagus. 

Heartburn is a symptom of acid reflux, rather than a separate issue in itself.

Acid reflux is what happens when excess stomach acid moves up your food pipe, causing irritation as it goes.

Heartburn is a burning feeling in your chest that happens as a result of that excess stomach acid burning your food pipe.

You may experience other symptoms of acid reflux, such as burping or a sore throat, without heartburn, but heartburn can't happen without acid reflux.

GORD stands for gastro-oesophagal reflux disease and is also known as GERD in American English.

GORD is often recognised as a persistent or prolonged form of acid reflux and can be a severe condition in some patients.

As well as heartburn, some of the most common symptoms of GORD include:

  • An unpleasant taste in the mouth
  • Bad breath
  • Bloating and wind
  • A sore throat
  • Feeling or being sick
  • Pain or difficulty swallowing
  • A persistent cough
  • Tooth decay and gum disease

Heartburn is a symptom of acid reflux. It occurs when acid produced by the stomach travels up towards the throat and causes a burning sensation in the middle of your chest.

You may also experience a cough, hiccups, bad breath and nausea when suffering from acid reflux.

Although acid reflux is not a serious condition it may be a symptom of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), a long-term form of acid reflux.

If you often experience heartburn and acid reflux it is recommended that you seek advice from your doctor, as they will be able to prescribe a medicine known as a proton pump inhibitor (usually either omeprazole or lansoprazole) which can help to reduce the amount of stomach acid that is produced by your stomach.
