If you have had an ulcer in the past and need to keep taking a medicine called an NSAID (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug), Losec MUPS Tablets can stop ulcers from forming or heal one that is already there.

Omeprazole belongs to a class of medicines called proton-pump inhibitors. Omeprazole is used to treat stomach ulcers and to relieve heartburn and indigestion. It works by reducing the amount of acid in your stomach. Furthermore, it works against bacteria called H pylori, which is a cause of stomachulcers.

Omeprazole is sometimes used in combination with two antibiotics to treat stomachulcers caused by H pylori bacteria. This is known as triple therapy and this combination of medicines kills the bacteria and prevents ulcers from recurring.
