INTRODUCTION

OCICURE IV 40MG INJECTION contains Omeprazole which belongs to the group of medicines called Proton pump inhibitors. It is mainly used in the treatment of Zollinger-Ellison syndrome (increased acid secretion in the stomach due to growth in pancreas resulting in abdominal pain, diarrhoea, gnawing or discomfort in upper abdomen, heartburn, nausea and vomiting).

OCICURE IV 40MG INJECTION is also used in the treatment of reflux esophagitis (acid contents in the stomach flows back into the tube connecting your mouth and stomach causing heartburn, nausea, vomiting, bitter taste, discomfort in upper abdomen or dry cough), ulcers in the stomach and duodenum (stomach acid damages the lining of the digestive tract and upper part of the intestine causing symptoms such as heartburn, indigestion, nausea, passing excessive amounts of gas or vomiting).

Before receiving OCICURE IV 40MG INJECTION, tell your doctor if you have any severe liver problems, weight loss for no reason, stomach pain or indigestion, severe or persistent diarrhoea, osteoporosis (condition in which bones become weak and brittle) and schedule for a specific blood test (chromogranin A).
