Can Omeprazole Be Taken Only When A Relapse Occurs And Without A Doctor’s Prescription?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Omeprazole is a drug that works by reducing levels of acid produced by the stomach. Basically, this acid is produced to aid the digestive process, but due to various triggers, this acid level can rise and actually hurt the stomach.
Among the triggers for an increase in stomach acid are eating late, stress, fatigue, consumption of spicy, sour, oily foods, drinking coffee and tea. Eating too much at one time and sleeping immediately after eating can also increase stomach acid levels. Gastric problems can also occur when a barrier that is supposed to prevent the stomach acid from rising into the esophagus becomes weak in some people, causing symptoms of heartburn, shortness of breath and a sour tongue.
Regarding your question, omeprazole falls into the category of hard drugs, and can only be purchased using a doctor's prescription. This is because in addition to its main function, there are many other things that must be considered in prescribing this drug such as the potential side effects, the clinical condition of each patient, and their interactions with other drugs that the patient also consumes.
So our advice, if you want to buy drugs that are more likely to be safe, buy drugs that contain antacids, because these drugs are free drugs and you can buy without a doctor's prescription. If this drug does not work, then you consult a doctor to get omeprazole back. And what is clear, the best treatment is to avoid the originator as we said earlier. Because stomach acid cannot go up by itself, and there must be a cause behind it. So, hopefully answering your question.
