All of the tablets omeprazole

Omeprazole tablets manufactured by many pharmaceutical companies. An example of such a dosage form can be the original losek omeprazole, which produces the Swedish pharmaceutical company AsteraZeneka. Tablets are produced three kinds of light pink 10 mg darker pink and 20 mg of red-brown to 40 mg.

Each tablet loseka except active principle (omeprazole) contain excipients: microcrystalline cellulose, glyceryl monostearate, hydroxypropyl cellulose, hydroxypropylmethyl cellulose, magnesium stearate, methacrylic acid, sugar granules, paraffin wax, polyethylene glycol, polysorbate, polyvinylpyrrolidone, crosslinked sodium stearyl fumarate, talc , triethyl citrate, iron oxide, titanium dioxide.

Omeproazol coated tablets enteric-coated, which allows it to be absorbed into the supportive environment of the small intestine. They absorbed within three to six hours after ingestion, this process does not affect food intake. If losek taken in the form of treatment, the effectiveness and increases its three days becomes maximum. After treatment, the therapeutic effect also lasts for three days.

As with all medications - proton pump inhibitors, losek suppresses the cellular level, the process formation in cells of the gastric glands hydrochloric acid. He then decomposed in the liver to metabolites and excreted in the urine (mainly) and in the bile.

In the elderly and in patients with impaired liver and kidney function may occur omeprazole delayed excretion from the body.

Who can take the tablets omeprazole

Omeprazole take on prescription, the pharmacy can be purchased with a prescription. Assign this drug for stomach ulcers and duodenal ulcers - it not only relieves irritation, the walls of the stomach and duodenum, due to increased acidity of gastric juice, but also inhibits the ability to live pathogens of this disease - Helicobacter pylori, which can not exist in a weakly acidic or alkaline conditions. But in the stomach and intestines to create an environment favorable to the action of antibiotics - they finally "finish off" the infectious agent.

Will exchange omeprazole well as erosive and ulcerative processes of another origin, for example, stress ulcers, ulcers that developed in patients receiving nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs - ketorol, indomethacin, and others), as well as increased acidity of gastric juices caused by other diseases of the digestion, for example, a benign tumor (adenoma) pancreas Diabetes and pancreas - the things you need to know  Diabetes and pancreas - the things you need to know
   (Zollinger-Ellison syndrome).

Losek often a part of an integrated treatment of reflux oesophagitis - inflammation of the pancreas, developing on the background of the permanent cast of acidic gastric contents into the esophagus.

Regidron - description of the drug, which normalizes the bowels

December 9, 2012

 rehydron description
 Regidron relates to preparations restoring fluid and electrolyte balance, so it helps the body to cope with the loss of fluids and salts. Regidron can accept the loss of fluid from any source, but if it is an intestinal infection, a rehydron will be little need to complete treatment, which will appoint a physician.

Regidron - how it works

The composition rehydron include sodium and potassium salts, as well as glucose. These ingredients help to restore lost fluids. The human body is designed so that the cells contained in the intercellular space and retain the liquid salt. If the fluid is lost, the lost and the salts and without cells of the body can not function properly. Significant loss of fluids during diarrhea, overheating or heavy physical activity can lead to irreversible changes in the body.

Salt ions are distributed in our tissues as follows: inside the cells is more potassium and intercellular space - sodium. The balance between these ions maintains normal fluid and electrolyte balance of tissues. With a sharp loss of sodium due to the difference in osmotic pressure of the water rushes into the cells, their swelling occurs.

Loss of potassium leads to muscle damage as skeletal and smooth, located in the internal organs and blood vessels. Particularly affected heart muscle, which can lead to the development of cardiovascular disease.

Regidron contains potassium and sodium, reducing water and salt balance in the body. In addition, it contains sodium citrate, which is converted in the body into his soda and alkaline, offsetting the resulting acidosis (increased acidity).

Admission rehydron allows you to restore the water-salt metabolism, normal tissue acidity, which significantly improves the patient's condition.

When can I take

Regidron accept the loss of fluid. Especially need this drug in the case when the person started repeated vomiting and diarrhea. Admission rehydron small portions will help to reduce fluid loss. But this is not always sometimes vomiting, particularly a child is unrestrained, and the liquid salt does not have time to be absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract and then aqueous saline solutions are administered intravenously.

Most often such a situation arises in cases of poisoning or an intestinal infection, so the appearance of vomiting and diarrhea you need to call the doctor, but you can start taking rehydron before his arrival. Even if the body is capable of holding a solution rehydron one of the drug may be small.

The doctor after the examination has to decide whether such a patient to leave home and spend his comprehensive treatment, including dehydration (restoration of water-salt balance) by receiving rehydron inside, and possibly (if it is an intestinal infection), antibacterial agents or should be sent to the hospital for dehydration intravenous administration of solutions.

You can take rehydron and after sweating after sauna, bath Sauna and health: the benefits and harms of bath procedures  Sauna and health: the benefits and harms of bath procedures
 , Prolonged intense exercise. If in this case there was a significant muscle weakness, palpitations, then rehydron help restore power. Even if such symptoms appear, rehydron can be taken prophylactically.

Do rehydron side effects and contraindications

All are part of rehydron components are natural constituents of the tissues of the body, so side effects rehydron usually causes no, unless, of course, to take it at the recommended doses. Theoretically, allergic reactions are possible, but in practice they normally do not happen.

If you take too much rehydron or make the solution higher than recommended concentration can appear violation of water-salt metabolism of the opposite nature: the high content of sodium and potassium, which can also be dangerous, especially if the patient has impaired renal function.

Do not use this rehydron with severe kidney disease in violation of their function, diabetes mellitus (due to the presence in rehydron Regidron - will help restore the water-salt balance  Regidron - will help restore the water-salt balance
   glucose), intestinal obstruction (together with the salts in the intestine actively absorbed toxic substances), unconsciousness (difficult to introduce into the solution and then assess the patient's condition) and hypersensitive to the components of the drug.

Regidron refers to drugs without prescription, but that does not mean that it can be taken in any amount and uncontrollably.
