NEWSFLASH REGARDING OMEPRAZOLE 

You may have seen a report in the News this week about the outcomes of an American study on this drug.  We have had a lot of calls from patients who are taking this drug and our message is not to panic as in most cases the benefits of these particular drugs far outweigh any risk. While the risk in the media report sounds high, it is still a very low risk for each person. This is backed up by a Consultant Gastroenterologist at Addenbrookes who says that these are very effective medicines, proven to save lives and reduce the need for surgery in patients with bleeding ulcers and several other conditions. 

 Our surgery already carries out audits of all patients on Omeprazole to check for any specific risk and it is our policy to take patients off the drug when it is no longer needed.  This is one of the reasons why we carry out medication reviews with patients, to check safety aspects and ensure the drugs are still needed.  The need for patients to continue on their Omeprazole will be undertaken at their next planned medication review and the message is not to panic if they are currently taking this drug.  See this link for further information CLICK HERE
