Customer declaration: I agree to use this pharmacy-only medicine strictly as directed. If symptoms persist, or if I suffer any adverse effects, I will contact my pharmacist or doctor immediately. I acknowledge that I have read and understood the information provided about this medicine.

Losec is used for the relief of reflux-like symptoms – heartburn or regurgitation. Heartburn is an acidic or burning feeling, rising up from the stomach towards the throat. The pain of heartburn, which is usually associated with acid regurgitation (reflux), can be caused or made worse by eating large meals, bending over or lying flat, and by hot, alcoholic or acidic drinks such as orange juice.

Losec works by decreasing the amount of acid made by the stomach, giving relief from acid reflux symptoms. If you suffer from acid reflux more than once a week, Losec may be right for you. However, if you have reflux every day you should see your pharmacist or doctor.

Losec does not stop food being digested in the normal way.

The symptoms below are not usually signs of acid reflux:

  • cardiac-type chest pain – often felt as a pressure or squeezing in the chest with shortness of breath and pain that may extend into the shoulders, arms or up toward the back or neck.
  • abdominal pain or discomfort
  • nausea, belching or bloating
  • sore throat or cough

See your pharmacist or doctor if you experience any of these symptoms.
