Omeprazole would help by decreasing acid production in the stomach and causing reflux.
Omeprazole belongs to a group of drugs called proton pump inhibitors. Omeprazole decreases the amount of acid produced in the stomach.
Omeprazole is used to treat symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and other conditions caused by excess stomach acid. It is also used to promote healing of erosive esophagitis (damage to your esophagus caused by stomach acid).
I take it up to 2 a day. Works great for my ulcer, I had acid in my throat and that has stopped I can also skip or forget and take it later and be just fine. Worked WAY better than the others I tried.
It does help heal and repair damage and my symptoms are 1000x better today than 2 years ago. I highly recommend it, even for nervous stomach.
