Official Answerby Drugs.com
Yosprala (aspirin and omeprazole) first delivers immediate-release omeprazole (40 mg) followed by a delayed-release, enteric-coated aspirin core in either 81 mg or 325 mg dose strengths.
The enteric-coated aspirin dissolves after the stomach pH reaches 5.5, or greater to reduce ulcer risk.
Yosprala is used in patients who require aspirin to help prevent a recurrence of heart attack or stroke, and who are at risk of developing gastric (stomach) ulcers due to aspirin use.
Yosprala is a combination antiplatelet and proton pump inhibitor from Aralez Pharmaceuticals.
