DOMZEL Capsule

Omeprazole 20mg

Composition:

Each DOMZEL capsule contains omeprazole 20mg.

Description:

DOMZEL is the brand name for the anti-ulcer agent, omeprazole. Omeprazole belongs to the class of substituted benzimidazoles. Omeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor that prevents the influx of hydrogen ions into the stomach and eventually prevents the formation of gastric acid in the stomach.

Omeprazole works by blocking the enzyme system H+/K+ ATP or the proton pump systems present on the surfaces of the parietal cells in the stomach. Omeprazole is activated in the acidic environment only. By blocking the proton pumps, omeprazole inhibits the final step of acid production, wherein the H+ ions move into the stomach. This antisecretory drug is effective in treating gastric reflux-related disorders, heartburn and ulcers.
