INSTRUCTION FOR THE SPECIALIST.

Description of the drug approved by the manufacturer for the printed edition of 2010.

PHARMACHOLOGIC EFFECT

Omeprazole inhibits the enzyme H + , K + -ATP-asu ("proton pump") in parietal cells of the stomach and blocks the final stage of the synthesis of hydrochloric acid.This leads to a decrease in the level of basal and stimulated secretion, regardless of the nature of the stimulus.
After a single dose of the drug inside, the action of omeprazole occurs within the first hour and lasts for 24 hours, the maximum effect is achieved after 2 hours. In patients with duodenal ulcer, taking 20 mg of omeprazole maintains an intragastric pH? 3.0 within 17 hours. After discontinuation of the drug secretory activity is completely restored after 3-5 days.
PHARMACOKINETICS

When administered orally, omeprazole is rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, C max in plasma is reached after 0.5-1 h. Bioavailability is 30-40%.
The connection with proteins is about 90%. Omeprazole is almost completely metabolized in the liver. The half-life is 0.5-1 hours. It is excreted by the kidneys (70-80%) and with bile (20-30%). In chronic renal failure, excretion decreases in proportion to a decrease in creatinine clearance. In elderly patients excretion decreases, bioavailability increases. With hepatic insufficiency, bioavailability is 100%, T 1/2 increases to 3 hours.
INDICATIONS

- Stomach ulcer and duodenal ulcer;

- reflux esophagitis;

- erosive and ulcerative lesions of the stomach and duodenum associated with the administration of NSAIDs, stress ulcers;

- Zollinger-Ellison syndrome;

- Prevention of ingestion of acidic stomach contents in the respiratory tract during general anesthesia (Mendelssohn syndrome).

Antrepid treatment of reflux esophagitis - 20 mg / day for a long time (up to 6 months.).

Zollinger-Ellison syndrome - the dose is selected individually depending on the initial level of gastric secretion, usually from 60 mg / day.
If necessary, the dose is increased to 80-120 mg / day, in this case it is divided into 2 divided doses.
Lyophilizate for the preparation of a solution for intravenous administration.

The drug is administered / in 1 time / day in cases where oral administration of the drug is difficult.

The lyophilizate is dissolved in 10 ml of the applied solvent (1 ampoule).
Do not use any other solvents!
The prepared solution should be used within 4 hours.

Enter the solution iv slowly for a period of at least 2.5 minutes at a rate not exceeding 4 ml / min.

If necessary, the infusion of omeprazole, the lyophilisate is dissolved in the applied solvent and then added to 100 ml of physiological saline or 5% dextrose and infused (iv drip for 20-30 minutes).
The prepared solution can be stored at room temperature for no more than 12 hours.
In the prevention of Mendelssohn syndrome, 40 mg of the drug is administered 1 h before the operation.
In the case of an operation for more than 2 hours, the dose of the drug should be re-entered.
SIDE EFFECT

From the digestive system : diarrhea or constipation, nausea, vomiting, flatulence, abdominal pain, dry mouth, taste disorders, stomatitis, transient increase in the activity of "liver" enzymes in the plasma;
in patients with a previous severe liver disease - hepatitis (including jaundice), a violation of liver function.
From the side of the nervous system : headache, dizziness, agitation, drowsiness, insomnia, paresthesia, depression, hallucinations (in patients with severe concomitant somatic diseases), in patients with a previous severe liver disease - encephalopathy.

From the musculoskeletal system : muscle weakness, myalgia, arthralgia.

On the part of the hematopoiesis system: leukopenia, thrombocytopenia;
in some cases - agranulocytosis, pancytopenia.
Dermatological reactions : itching;
rarely - skin rash; in some cases - photosensitivity, multiforme exudative erythema, alopecia.
Allergic reactions : urticaria, angioedema, bronchospasm, interstitial nephritis and anaphylactic shock.

Other : visual impairment, peripheral edema, increased sweating, fever, gynecomastia;
rarely - the formation of gastric glandular cysts during long-term treatment (the consequence of inhibition of the secretion of hydrochloric acid, is benign, reversible).

No interaction with concomitant antacids was noted.

It can reduce the absorption of esters of penicillin, iron salts, itraconazole and ketoconazole (omeprazole increases the pH of the stomach).
Being an inhibitor of cytochrome P450, it can increase the concentration and reduce the excretion of diazepam, anticoagulants of indirect action, phenytoin (drugs that are metabolized in the liver via cytochrome CYP2C19), which in some cases may require a reduction in the doses of these drugs.
