Losec Tablets are for the short-term symptomatic relief of reflux-like symptoms - heartburn or acid-reflux. Heartburn is an acidic or burning feeling, rising up from the stomach towards the throat. The pain of heartburn, which usually associated with acid regurgitation (reflux), can be caused or made worse by eating large meals, bending over or lying flat, and by hot, alcoholic or acidic drinks such as orange juice.
Losec works by decreasing the amount of acid made by the stomach, giving relief from acid reflux symptoms.
If you suffer from acid reflux more than once a week, Losec may be right for you. However, if you have reflux every day you should see your doctor or pharmacist. The symptoms below are not usually signs of acid reflux:
