If you have certain conditions affecting the esophagus, stomach, or intestines, your healthcare provider may prescribe omeprazole (Prilosec®). Omeprazole is part of a class of drugs known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), and it works by decreasing the amount of acid in your stomach by blocking specific production sites.
The prescription version of this medicine comes in the form of a capsule or as packets to be used to make an oral suspension. As with any medication, it is possible to take too much omeprazole. Seek immediate medical attention if you overdose on this drug. Symptoms of an omeprazole overdose can include confusion, blurred vision, or a rapid heart rate.
