The doctors at Simple Online Pharmacy can prescribe Omeprazole and other treatments for acid reflux.

It can affect people of all ages, including children, however it is most common in adults over 40. It is also more common amongst men than women.
Acid reflux occurs when stomach acid leaks out of the stomach and into the gullet.This can cause a burning sensation to occur in the upper chest area, and a bad taste at the back of your throat. Acid reflux is most commonly caused by weakening of the lower sphincter muscles of the gullet.  Omeprazole is one of the most common treatments for the condition.

FAQ

Acid reflux occurs in about 1 in 5 of us, however, as we get older, the majority of us are likely to experience the symptoms of heartburn.

Acid reflux can become worse when eating fatty food, smoking, drinking caffeinated drinks and eating chocolate. Avoiding these may help reduce symptoms. Being overweight and stress have also been shown to make acid reflux more common.

You should see your GP if you are having symptoms regularly, you have difficulty swallowing and if over the counter medications are not helping. If any of the following symptoms occur, seek medical advice:

  • Persistent vomiting
  • Vomiting blood
  • Unexplained weight loss
