ESOMEPRAZOLE

Information for patients
Drug Information Esomeprazole contains a medicine called esomeprazole. This belongs to a group of medicines called ‘proton pump inhibitors’. They work by reducing the amount of acid that your stomach produces. Esomeprazole is used for the short-term treatment of certain conditions, when you are unable to have treatment by mouth. It is used to treat: •‘Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease’ (GORD) in adults, adolescents and children. This is where acid from the stomach escapes into the gullet (the tube which connects your throat to your stomach) causing pain, inflammation and heartburn. •Stomach ulcers in adults caused by medicines called NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti- Inflammatory Drugs). Esomeprazole can also be used to stop stomach ulcers from forming if you are taking NSAIDs. •Prevention of rebleeding in adults following therapeutic endoscopy for acute bleeding gastric or duodenal ulcers.

Rare Drug Side Effects •Blood problems such as a reduced number of white cells or platelets. This can cause weakness, bruising or make infections more likely. •Low levels of sodium in the blood. This may cause weakness, being sick (vomiting) and cramps. •Feeling agitated, confused or depressed. •Taste changes. •Suddenly feeling wheezy or short of breath (bronchospasm). •An inflammation of the inside of the mouth. •An infection called “thrush” which can affect the gut and is caused by a fungus. •Liver problems, including jaundice which can cause yellow skin, dark urine, and tiredness. •Hair loss (alopecia). •Skin rash on exposure to sunshine. •Joint pains (arthralgia) or muscle pains (myalgia). •Generally feeling unwell and lacking energy. •Increased sweating.
