Zegerid Medication Information

If you have certain conditions caused by excess stomach acid, your healthcare provider may prescribe Zegerid® (omeprazole/sodium bicarbonate). Specifically, this drug is used to treat GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) and other conditions involving the stomach, intestines, and esophagus. It works by reducing the production of acid in the stomach.
 
Zegerid comes in the form of capsules and a powder (which is mixed with water to make an oral suspension). It is taken once daily on an empty stomach, at least one hour before eating anything.
 
Before starting treatment with this medication, it's important to review Zegerid's safety information with your healthcare provider. This medicine may not be suitable for everyone, so make sure your healthcare provider is aware if you have any other medical conditions (such as an electrolyte imbalance or any allergies) or are taking any other types of medicine. Potential side effects can include headaches and diarrhea.
