Safety Of Omeprazole For People With Heart Disease?
Omeprazole ulcer drug is safe for heart sufferers
Thank you for the question.
Omeprazole is a drug taken to relieve symptoms in gastric diseases such as GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), peptic ulcers, or gastric infections by the bacterium Helicobacter pylori. This drug is a group of PPI or proton-pump inhibitors that work to reduce gastric acid production.
These drugs can cause side effects such as headaches, abdominal pain, and flatulence. Basically this drug is safe for the heart, but this drug can interact with several other drugs that are usually taken by people with heart disease, such as:
Clopidogrel, this drug can reduce the action of clopidogrel and potentially clot blood. Digoxin, this drug can increase the level of digoxin in the body. Warfarin, this drug can increase the level of warfarin in the body. It's a good idea to consult with your cardiologist depending on the heart complaint you have.
