Product Details

What you need to know before you are given Omeprazole Injection

You must not be given Omeprazole: • if you are allergic to omeprazole or any of the other ingredients of this medicine (listed in section 6). • if you are allergic to other proton pump inhibitor medicines (e.g. pantoprazole, lansoprazole, rabeprazole, esomeprazole). • if you are taking a medicine containing nelfinavir (used for HIV infection). Do not use Omeprazole if any of the above applies to you. If you are not sure, talk to your doctor, nurse or pharmacist before you are given this medicine. Warnings and precautions Omeprazole may hide the symptoms of other diseases. Therefore, if any of the following happen to you before you are given Omeprazole or after you are given it, talk to your doctor straight away: • You lose a lot of weight for no reason and have problems swallowing. • You get stomach pain or indigestion. • You begin to vomit food or blood. • You pass black stools (blood-stained faeces). • You experience severe or persistent diarrhoea, as omeprazole has been associated with a small increase in infectious diarrhoea. • You have severe liver problems. • If you have ever had a skin reaction after treatment with a medicine similar to Omeprazole that reduces stomach acid. • You are due to have a specific blood test (Chromogranin A). If you get a rash on your skin, especially in areas exposed to the sun, tell your doctor as soon as you can, as you may need to stop your treatment with Omeprazole. Remember to also mention any other ill-effects like pain in your joints. Taking a proton pump inhibitor like Omeprazole, especially over a period of more than one year, may slightly increase your risk of fracture in the hip, wrist or spine. Tell your doctor if you have osteoporosis or if you are taking corticosteroids (which can increase the risk of osteoporosis). Other medicines and Omeprazole Please tell your doctor, nurse or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription. This is because Omeprazole can affect the way some medicines work and some medicines can have an effect on Omeprazole. You must not be given Omeprazole if you are taking a medicine containing nelfinavir (used to treat HIV infection). Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking any of the following medicines: • Ketoconazole, itraconazole, posaconazole or voriconazole (used to treat infections caused by a fungus). • Digoxin (used to treat heart problems) • Diazepam (used to treat anxiety, relax muscles or in epilepsy) • Phenytoin (used in epilepsy). If you are taking phenytoin, your doctor will need to monitor you when you start or stop taking Omeprazole. • Medicines that are used to thin your blood, such as warfarin or other vitamin K blockers. Your doctor may need to monitor you when you start or stop taking Omeprazole • Rifampicin (used to treat tuberculosis) • Atazanavir (used to treat HIV infection) • Tacrolimus (in cases of organ transplantation) • St John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum) (used to treat mild depression) • Cilostazol (used to treat intermittent claudication) • Saquinavir (used to treat HIV infection) • Clopidogrel (used to prevent blood clots (thrombi) • Erlotinib (used to treat cancer) • Methotrexate (a chemotherapy medicine used in high doses to treat cancer) – if you are taking a high dose of methotrexate, your doctor may temporarily stop your Omeprazole treatment. If your doctor has prescribed the antibiotics amoxicillin and clarithromycin as well as Omeprazole to treat ulcers caused by Helicobacter pylori infection, it is very important that you tell your doctor about any other medicines you are taking. Pregnancy and breast-feeding If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking this medicine. Omeprazole is excreted in breast milk but it is not likely to affect the child when therapeutic doses are used. Your doctor will decide whether you can take Omeprazole if you are breastfeeding. Driving and using machines Omeprazole is not likely to affect your ability to drive or use any tools or machines. Side effects such as dizziness and visual disturbances may occur (see section 4). If affected, you should not drive or operate machinery.

There may also be severe blisters and bleeding in the lips, eyes, mouth, nose and genitals. This could be ‘Stevens-Johnson syndrome’ or ‘toxic epidermal necrolysis’. • Yellow skin, dark urine and tiredness which can be symptoms of liver problems.

Rare side effects (may affect up to 1 in 1000 people) • Blood problems such as a reduced number of white cells or platelets. This can cause weakness, bruising or make infections more likely. • Allergic reactions, sometimes very severe, including swelling of the lips, tongue and throat, fever, wheezing. • Low levels of sodium in the blood. This may cause weakness, being sick (vomiting) and cramps. • Feeling agitated, confused or depressed. • Taste changes. • Eyesight problems such as blurred vision. • Suddenly feeling wheezy or short of breath (bronchospasm). • Dry mouth. • 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). • Severe kidney problems (interstitial nephritis). • Increased sweating. Very rare side effects (may affect up to 1 in 10 000 people) • Changes in blood count including agranulocytosis (lack of white blood cells). • Aggression. • Seeing, feeling or hearing things that are not there (hallucinations). • Severe liver problems leading to liver failure and inflammation of the brain. • Sudden onset of a severe rash or blistering or peeling skin. This may be associated with a high fever and joint pains (Erythema multiforme, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, toxic epidermal necrolysis) • Muscle weakness. • Enlarged breasts in men. Side effects with unknown frequency (frequency cannot be estimated from the available data) • Inflammation in the gut (leading to diarrhoea). • If you are on Omeprazole for more than three months it is possible that the levels of magnesium in your blood may fall. Low levels of magnesium can be seen as fatigue, involuntary muscle contractions, disorientation, convulsions, dizziness or increased heart rate. If you get any of these symptoms, please tell your doctor promptly. Low levels of magnesium can also lead to a reduction in potassium or calcium levels in the blood. Your doctor may decide to perform regular blood tests to monitor your levels of magnesium. • Rash, possibly with pain in the joints Irreversible visual impairment has been reported in isolated cases of critically ill patients who have received omeprazole intravenous injection, especially at high doses, but no causal relationship has been established. Omeprazole may in very rare cases affect the white blood cells leading to immune deficiency. If you have an infection with symptoms such as fever with a severely reduced general condition or fever with symptoms of a local infection such as pain in the neck, throat or mouth or difficulties in urinating, you must consult your doctor as soon as possible so that a lack of white blood cells (agranulocytosis) can be ruled out by a blood test. It is important for you to give information about your medicine at this time. Do not be concerned by this list of possible side effects. You may not get any of them. Reporting of side effects If you get any side effects talk to your doctor, pharmacist or nurse. This includes any possible side effects not listed in this leaflet. You can also report side effects directly via the Yellow Card Scheme at www.mhra.gov.uk/yellowcard or search for MHRA Yellow card in the Google Play or Apple App Store.
