Losec Control gastro-resistant tablets contains the active substance omeprazole to treat reflux symptoms.
Omeprazole belongs to a group of medicines called ‘proton pump inhibitors’ that work by reducing the amount of acid that your stomach produces.
Losec Control is used in adults for the short-term treatment of reflux symptoms, including heartburn and acid regurgitation.
Reflux refers to the backflow of acid from the stomach into the gullet or “foodpipe”, which can make it inflamed and painful. This may cause you symptoms such as a painful burning sensation in the chest rising up to the throat (heartburn) and a sour taste in the mouth (acid regurgitation).
It might be necessary to take Losec tablets for 2 to 3 consecutive days to improve symptoms.
