What is it
Emazole Control Esomeprazole is a short term treatment for reflux symptoms such as heartburn and acid regurgitation.
Reflux causes your gullet (food pipe) to become inflamed and painful. Symptoms may cause a painful sensation in the chest rising up to your throat or may also give you a sour taste in the mouth.
Emazole Control works by reducing the amount of acid that your stomach produces for at least 24hours. Emazole does not offer immediate result and it may take 23 days in a row before you feel better.
The recommended dose is one tablet a day.
Do not take more than this recommended dose of one tablet (20mg) a day, even if you don.t feel an improvement immediately.
You may need to take the tablets for 23 days in a row before your reflux symptoms (for example heartburn and acid regurgitation) get better.
The treatment length is up to 14 days.
When your reflux symptoms have completely gone, you should stop taking this medicine.
If your reflux symptoms get worse or do not improve after taking this medicine for 14 days in a row, you should consult a doctor.
