How does Esomeprazole work?

Esomeprazole is categorised as a type of medicine called ‘proton pump inhibitors’. It works by decreasing the amount of acid in the stomach. It is used in gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD), ulcers in the stomach or upper part of the gut caused by the bacteria Helicobacter pylori, stomach ulcers caused by certain medicines such as NSAIDs, as well as too much acid in the stomach caused by other conditions.

It is available in gastro-resistant tablets of 20mg or 40mg.

How effective is Esomeprazole?

Esomeprazole is categorised as a type of medicine called ‘proton pump inhibitors’. It works by decreasing the amount of acid in the stomach. 

It is used in gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD), where acid, which is found in the stomach, splashes back into the throat and causes pain and inflammation. Sometimes stomach ulcers can be caused by certain medicines such as NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs). An excess of acid in the stomach can be caused by other conditions, such as a growth in the pancreas (Zollinger-Ellison syndrome).

It is also used in ulcers in the stomach or upper part of the gut caused by the bacteria Helicobacter pylori as part of triple therapy with other medicines.

What dose should I choose?

Esomeprazole is available in 20mg or 40mg tablets. The dose needed depends on the condition and its severity. The length of treatment also depends on the age of the patient and the condition of the patient’s liver. The doctor will prescribe the correct dose and amount that should be taken. 

Doses may vary depending on the factors affecting the patient. It is important to follow the instructions given by the doctor and pharmacist closely.

How should I take Esomeprazole

Esomeprazole is available in 20mg or 40mg tablets. The dose needed depends on the condition and its severity. The length of treatment also depends on the age of the patient and the condition of the patient’s liver. The doctor will prescribe the correct dose and amount that should be taken. 

Esomeprazole is used in adults aged 12 years and over. The tablets can be taken with or without food but should be swallowed with a glass of water.

In adults aged 18 years and over, these are the recommended doses. 

Doses may vary depending on the factors affecting the patient. It is essential to follow the instructions given by the doctor and pharmacist carefully.

In the treatment of Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease:

If the food pipe has been slightly damaged, one tablet of 40mg Esomeprazole should be taken once a day for four weeks. The doctor may decide to examine the patient after four weeks, and sometimes this treatment is repeated for another four weeks.

Once the gullet (the tube which connects the throat to the stomach) has healed, the dose may be decreased to 20mg daily.

In the treatment of ulcers caused by Helicobacter pylori:

The recommended dose is one 20mg Esomeprazole tablet twice a day for one week. The doctor will prescribe two types of antibiotics in conjunction with this treatment - this is called ‘triple therapy’.

In the treatment of stomach ulcers caused by NSAIDs:

The recommended dose is one 20mg Esomeprazole tablet once a day for 4 to 8 weeks. The duration of treatment will be assessed by the doctor and depends on whether therapy on NSAIDs can be stopped.

In the prevention of stomach ulcers caused by NSAIDs, either in patients prone to acidity or with medicines likely to cause excess acidity:

The recommended dose is one 20mg Esomeprazole tablet once a day during therapy with NSAIDs.

To treat excess stomach acid caused by a growth in the pancreas (Zollinger-Ellison syndrome):

The recommended dose is 40mg Esomeprazole twice a day. The doctor will adjust the dose depending on the needs of the patient and decide on the duration of treatment. The maximum dose is 80mg twice a day.
