How Omeprazole and Sodium Bicarbonate Capsule Works For Your Frequent Heartburn

Omeprazole and sodium bicarbonate capsule works differently from other OTC heartburn products, such as antacids and other acid reducers. Omeprazole and sodium bicarbonate capsule stops acid production at the source – the acid pump that produces stomach acid. Omeprazole and sodium bicarbonate capsule is to be used once a day (every 24 hours), every day for 14 days.

What to Expect When Using Omeprazole and Sodium Bicarbonate Capsule

Omeprazole and sodium bicarbonate capsule is a different type of medicine from antacids and other acid reducers. Omeprazole and sodium bicarbonate capsule may take 1 to 4 days for full effect, although some people get complete relief of symptoms within 24 hours. Make sure you take the entire 14 days of dosing to treat your frequent heartburn.

Tips for Managing Heartburn
  • Do not lie flat or bend over soon after eating.
  • Do not eat late at night or just before bedtime.
  • Certain foods or drinks are more likely to cause heartburn, such as rich, spicy, fatty and fried foods, chocolate, caffeine, alcohol and even some fruits and vegetables.
  • Eat slowly and do not eat big meals.
  • If you are overweight, lose weight.
  • If you smoke, quit smoking.
  • Raise the head of your bed.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing around your stomach.
