Additional Info

These heartburn and acid reflux capsules contain esomeprazole 20mg. It belongs to a group of medicines called ‘proton pump inhibitors’ and they work by reducing the amount of acid that your stomach produces.

Esomeprazole is used for short-term treatment of reflux symptoms like heartburn and acid regurgitation or for reflux. Reflux is the backflow of acid from the stomach into the gullet (“foodpipe”) which may become inflamed and painful. Symptoms of acid reflux include painful sensations in the chest that rises up to your throat (heartburn) or a sour taste in the mouth (acid regurgitation).

While esomeprazole does not bring immediate relief in the way an antacid would, after taking for 2-3 days in a row, most patients feel a lot better, with much greater symptom control.
