Q. Can Omeprazole be used in stroke patients?
Omeprazole can be used in stroke patients. There are studies suggesting that proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) as a class are not associated with an increased short-term risk of recurrent stroke or death among older adults treated with clopidogrel after stroke.
Q. How is Omeprazole better than cimetidine?
Omeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor and cimetidine is an H2 receptor blocker. They act in different ways but both decrease the acid production in the stomach. However, Omeprazole is more potent, longer acting, and has fewer adverse effects when compared to cimetidine.
Q. Is Omeprazole better than rabeprazole?
Omeprazole and Rabeprazole belong to the same class of medicines known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and work in the same way to decrease acid production in the stomach.
