What is Acimed?

The active ingredient of Acimed brand is omeprazole. Omeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor that decreases the amount of acid produced in the stomach. Omeprazole, USP is a white to off-white crystalline powder that melts with decomposition at about 155В°C. It is a weak base, freely soluble in ethanol and methanol, and slightly soluble in acetone and isopropanol and very slightly soluble in water. The stability of Omeprazole is a function of pH; it is rapidly degraded in acid media, but has acceptable stability under alkaline conditions. Omeprazole is supplied as delayed-release capsules for oral administration. Each delayed-release capsule contains either 10 mg, 20 mg or 40 mg of Omeprazole in the form of enteric-coated beads with the following inactive ingredients: ammonium hydroxide, dibutyl sebacate, D&C Yellow No. 10, FD&C Green No. 3, gelatin, ethylcellulose, fumed silica, hypromellose, methacrylic acid, oleic acid, silicon dioxide, sodium lauryl sulfate, sugar spheres, talc, titanium dioxide and triethyl citrate.

Mechanism Of Action

Acimed belongs to a class of antisecretory compounds, the substituted benzimidazoles, that suppress gastric acid secretion by specific inhibition of the H + /K + ATPase enzyme system at the secretory surface of the gastric parietal cell. Because this enzyme system is regarded as the acid (proton) pump within the gastric mucosa, Acimed has been characterized as a gastric acid-pump inhibitor, in that it blocks the final step of acid production. This effect is dose-related and leads to inhibition of both basal and stimulated acid secretion irrespective of the stimulus. Animal studies indicate that after rapid disappearance from plasma, Acimed can be found within the gastric mucosa for a day or more.

Q: Does Prilosec cause weight gain and severe night sweats? I have been on it for almost two months.

A: According to the package insert, the most common side effects reported in patients treated with Prilosec (Acimed) were headache (6.9 percent), abdominal pain (5.2 percent), nausea (4.0 percent), diarrhea (3.7 percent), vomiting (3.2 percent), and gas (2.7 percent). Weight gain has been reported in clinical practice through voluntary reporting and surveillance systems. A review of medical literature found case reports of night sweats in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (1). The cause of the night sweats and effect of treatment is unknown. For more information, please consult with your health care provider and visit // You are encouraged to report any negative side effects of prescription drugs to your health care practitioner and the FDA by visiting, or by calling 1-800-FDA-1088.

You just feel crappy all the time.

Using proton-pump inhibitors, especially long term, can put you at a higher risk for vitamin B12 deficiency, a serious bacterial infection called clostridium difficile, bone fractures, and possibly kidney disease, Ravella says. These are very rare side effects, but you want to know the scary stuff too, right? "Because of these safety concerns, I try to keep patients on Acimed for the least amount of time needed," she says.

In a crossover clinical study, 72 healthy subjects were administered clopidogrel (300 mg loading dose followed by 75 mg per day) alone and with Acimed (80 mg at the same time as clopidogrel) for 5 days. The exposure to the active metabolite of clopidogrel was decreased by 46% (Day 1) and 42% (Day 5) when clopidogrel and Acimed were administered together.

Results from another crossover study in healthy subjects showed a similar pharmacokinetic interaction between clopidogrel (300 mg loading dose/75 mg daily maintenance dose) and Acimed 80 mg daily when co-administered for 30 days. Exposure to the active metabolite of clopidogrel was reduced by 41% to 46% over this time period.

In another study, 72 healthy subjects were given the same doses of clopidogrel and 80 mg Acimed but the drugs were administered 12 hours apart; the results were similar, indicating that administering clopidogrel and Acimed at different times does not prevent their interaction.

Q: I have been taking Prilosec OTC for several years. What else is available?

A: Your question concerns alternatives to Prilosec OTC (// It seems from your comments that you are no longer satisfied with the results you are getting from Acimed. Other products in the "Proton Pump Inhibitor" class of antiulcer drugs include AcipHex , Kapidex , Nexium , Prevacid , and Protonix . Even though all these drugs work the same way as Prilosec, there are enough differences among them that many people find relief from at least one of them. Gregory Latham, M.S., RPh

How long will I take it for?

If you bought the medicine yourself from a pharmacy, tell your doctor if you feel no better after taking Acimed for 2 weeks.

They may want to do tests to find out what's causing your symptoms or change you to a different medicine.

Depending on your illness or the reason you're taking Acimed, you may only need it for a few weeks or months.

Sometimes you might need to take it for longer, even for many years.

Some people don't need to take Acimed every day and take it only when they have symptoms.

Once you feel better (often after a few days or weeks), you can stop taking it.

But taking Acimed in this way isn't suitable for everyone. Talk to your doctor about what's best for you.

4. How and when to take it

It's usual to take Acimed once a day, first thing in the morning. It doesn't upset the stomach, so you can take it with or without food.

If you take Acimed twice a day, take 1 dose in the morning and 1 dose in the evening.
