This interaction is possible because omeprazole is an inhibitor of the enzymes CYP2C19 and CYP3A4. [39] Clopidogrel is an inactive prodrug that depends in part on CYP2C19 for conversion to its active form. Inhibition of CYP2C19 may block the activation of clopidogrel, which may reduce its effect. [40] [41] People who take proton pump inhibitors such as omeprazole are more likely to break their wrists, hips or spine than people who do not take any of these medications. People who take proton pump inhibitors may also develop fundic gland polyps (a type of growth on the lining of the stomach). These risks are higher in people who take high doses of one of these drugs or who take them for a year or more. Talk to your doctor about the risk of taking omeprazole. Omeprazole increases the level or effect of dacomitinib by an unspecified interaction mechanism. Avoid or use an alternative drug.

Co-use of a PPI reduces levels of dacomitinib, which may reduce the effectiveness of dacomitinib. Avoid using the PPI with dacomitinib. As an alternative to PPIs, use locally acting antacids or an H2 receptor antagonist. Administer at least 6 hours before or 10 hours after taking an H2 receptor antagonist. Close monitoring (1)Etravirine increases the level or effect of omeprazole by affecting the metabolism of the hepatic enzyme CYP2C19. Slightly (2)Omeprazole increases the level or effect of etravirine by affecting the metabolism of the liver enzyme CYP2C19. Triviality/meaning unknown. Omeprazole increases the level or effect of etravirine by affecting the metabolism of the liver enzyme CYP2C9/10. Triviality/meaning unknown.

Omeprazole can be quantified in plasma or serum to monitor treatment or confirm a diagnosis of poisoning in hospitalized patients. Omeprazole plasma concentrations are usually between 0.2 and 1.2 mg/L in people who receive the drug therapeutically orally, and between 1 and 6 mg/L in patients with acute overdose. Enantiomerin chromatographic methods are available to distinguish esomeprazole from racemic omeprazole. [60] Omeprazole reduces the level or effect of theophylline by affecting the metabolism of the liver enzyme CYP1A2. Minor/Significance unknown. Omeprazole increases the toxicity of theophylline by others (see comment). Triviality/meaning unknown. Comment: prolonged use of proton pump inhibitors can cause hypochlorhydria, which in turn causes an increase in peristalsis in the small intestine and a decrease in peristalsis in the proximal colon; Toxicity monitoring.

Omeprazole increases the level or effect of abrocitinib by affecting the metabolism of the liver enzyme CYP2C19. Adjust the treatment/monitor precisely. Start with abrocitinib 50 mg daily with concomitant administration of CYP2C19 inhibitors. If an adequate response is not achieved after 12 weeks, it may increase to 100 mg per day. Discontinue if insufficient response after dose increase. Omeprazole acts as a CYP2C19 inhibitor. Omeprazole, administered at doses of 40 mg daily for one week to 20 healthy volunteers in the crossover study, increased cilostazol Cmax and AUC by 18% and 26%, respectively. The Cmax and AUC of one of the active metabolites, 3,4-dihydro-cilostazole, which has 4 to 7 times the activity of cilostazole, were increased by 29% and 69%, respectively. Concomitant use of cilostazole and omeprazole is expected to increase concentrations of cilostazole and the above active metabolite [see DRUG INTERACTIONS]. After oral administration, the onset of the antisecretory effect of omeprazole occurs within one hour, the maximum effect occurring within two hours.

The inhibition of secretion after 24 hours is about 50% of the maximum and the duration of inhibition lasts up to 72 hours. The antisecretory effect therefore lasts much longer than expected due to the very short plasma half-life (less than one hour), apparently due to longer binding to the parietal enzyme H+/K+-ATPase. When the drug is stopped, secretory activity gradually returns over 3-5 days. The inhibitory effect of omeprazole on acid secretion increases with repeated administration once a day, reaching a plateau after four days. When Prilosec`s U.S. patent expired in April 2001, AstraZeneca introduced esomeprazole (Nexium) as a patented alternative. [64] Many companies introduced generic drugs when AstraZeneca`s patents expired worldwide and are available under many brand names. The first study included 12 paediatric patients aged 1 to 2 years with clinically diagnosed GERD. Patients received a single dose of omeprazole (0.5 mg/kg, 1 mg/kg or 1.5 mg/kg) as an open capsule in 8.4% sodium bicarbonate solution for 8 weeks.

Seventy-five percent (9/12) of patients had episodes of vomiting/regurgitation that decreased by at least 50% from baseline. No teratogenicity was observed in oral reproduction studies of magnesium from esomeprazole (an omeprazole enantiomer) in rats and rabbits during organogenesis at doses administered approximately 68-fold and 42-fold a human oral dose of 40 mg esomeprazole or 40 mg omeprazole (based on a 60 kg body surface area of a person). Changes in bone morphology were observed in the offspring of rats administered during most of gestation and lactation at doses equivalent to approximately 34 times an oral dose of 40 mg esomeprazole or 40 mg omeprazole in humans; When maternal administration was limited to pregnancy only, there was no effect on bone physeal morphology in offspring at any age. After a single oral dose of omeprazole buffered solution, little or no unchanged medication was excreted in the urine. The majority of the dose (approximately 77%) was eliminated in the urine as at least six metabolites. Two were identified as hydroxyomeprazole and the corresponding carboxylic acid. The remainder of the dose was recoverable in faeces. This involves significant biliary excretion of omeprazole metabolites. Three metabolites were identified in plasma, sulfone and sulfone derivatives of omeprazole and hydroxyomeprazole. These metabolites have very little or no antisecretory activity.

Omeprazole increases the level or effect of cannabidiol by affecting the metabolism of the liver enzyme CYP2C19. Adjust the treatment exactly/monitor. Consider reducing the dose of cannabidiol when administered in combination with a strong CYP2C19 inhibitor. Cannabidiol increases the level or effect of omeprazole by affecting the metabolism of the liver enzyme CYP2C19. Adjust the treatment/monitor exactly. Consider reducing the dose of sensitive substrates of CYP2C19 when administered in combination with cannabidiol. Precautions: Before taking omeprazole, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or similar medicinal products (such as esomeprazole, lansoprazole, pantoprazole); or if you have other allergies. This product may contain inactive ingredients that may cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before taking this medicine, tell your doctor or pharmacist about your medical history, especially liver disease, lupus.

Some symptoms may actually be signs of a more serious illness. Seek immediate medical attention if you have: heartburn with dizziness/sweating/dizziness, chest/jaw/arm/shoulder pain (especially with shortness of breath, unusual sweating), unexplained weight loss. Before treating yourself with this medicine, consult a doctor immediately if you experience any of the following signs of serious illness: problems or pain when swallowing food, bloody vomiting, vomiting resembling coffee grounds, bloody/black stools, heartburn for more than 3 months, frequent chest pain, frequent wheezing (especially with heartburn), nausea/vomiting, stomach pain. Before surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, and herbal products). Proton pump inhibitors (such as omeprazole) may increase the risk of bone fractures, especially with prolonged use, higher doses and in the elderly. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about ways to prevent bone loss or fracture, such as: taking calcium supplements (such as calcium citrate) and vitamin D. Older adults may be more susceptible to side effects of this medicine, especially bone loss and fractures (see above) and C. difficile infection (see section Side effects).

Children may be more susceptible to side effects of this medicine, especially fever, cough, and infections of the nose, throat, and respiratory tract. During pregnancy, this medicine should only be used when clearly necessary. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. This medicine is excreted in breast milk. The effects on an infant are unknown. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding. Peptic ulcers (PUDs) are often associated with bacterial infection with Helicobacter pylori (NSAIDs) 12. Treatment of H. Pylori infection may include the addition of omeprazole or other proton pump inhibitors as part of the regimen label, 13.

H. pylori replicates more effectively at a neutral pH of 14. Acid inhibition in the eradication treatment of H. pylori, including proton pump inhibitors such as omeprazole, increases stomach pH and prevents the growth of H. pylori 13. It is generally believed that proton pump inhibitors inhibit the enzyme urease, which increases the pathogenesis of H. pylori in stomach acid-related diseases 15. Concomitant use of omeprazole and voriconazole (a combined inhibitor of CYP2C19 and CYP3A4) more than doubled exposure to omeprazole. When voriconazole (400 mg every 12 hours for one day, followed by 200 mg once daily for 6 days) was administered with omeprazole (40 mg once daily for 7 days) to healthy volunteers, steady-state Cmax and omeprazole AUC0-24 increased significantly: on average 2-fold (90% CI: 1.8, 2.6) and 4-fold (90% CI: 3.3, 4.4) compared with omeprazole administration without voriconazole [see DRUG INTERACTIONS]. Omeprazole prescription is used alone or with other medications to treat symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), a condition in which acid reflux from the stomach causes heartburn and possible damage to the esophagus (the tube between the throat and stomach) in adults and children 1 year of age and older.
