Omezol (Omeprazole) is a proton – pump inhibitor. It inhibits the secretion of gastric acid by irreversibly

blocking the enzyme system of H+/ K+ - ATPase (the proton pump) in the parietal cells . It inhibits both basa

and stimulated acid secretion irrespective of the stimulus. Omeprazole is rapidly absorbed and its absorptio

is not affected by food. It is almost completely metabolized in the liver and rapidly eliminated mostly in the

urine. The elimination half-life is about 0.5 to 3 hrs. Omeprazole is highly bound (about 95%) to plasma
