      Losec, also known as Omeprazole or Prilosec: Losec is a medication that cuts down secretions from the gastic tract. I rate it as a wonderful drug.

      It suppresses the stomach acid secretion by stopping the last step of gastic acid production.

      It can be used for duodenal ulcers,

      gastric reflux, stomach ulcer, erosive esophogitis, and what is known as heartburn.

      Most of the doses taken are either the 10mg,20mg,or 40mg capsules.

      In certain conditions it may be prescribed up to 120mg 3 times a day.

      The 120mg is given in a divided dose.

      But remember this ...

      • is only for certain diagnosis.

        I have taken it before, with great success.

        I was experiencing heartburn more often than not.

        I tried other remedies and they were not helpful, so I started on Losec.

        I was relieved within a two week period.

        I was taking

        the 20mg capsule and what I liked about it other than the relief,was taking it once just before breakfast.

        No need in worrying about taking it again until the next day.

        I feel this helps to keep this particular medication regime in compliancy, therefore it is a true evaluation of the medication.

    does losec affect contrpctive pill

    Galega says :

    Losec contains Omeprazole which is unlikely to have any negative effect on contraceptive pill. However, if it is taken with certain antibiotic like Amoxicillin, then there might be some problem. You must disclose to your doctor that you are regularly taking a contraceptive pill.
