I have been prescibed Omeprazole and I would like to know in more detail how it is working in my body than its general purpose to reduce stomach acid production.
Omeprazole is part of a group of medications called proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). The stomach contains tiny pumps (called proton pumps) that produce acid. Omeprazole works by binding to these proton pumps, stopping the production of acid. Omeprazole is very effective at decreasing acid production.
