Prilosec

A highly effective inhibitor of gastric acid secretion used in the therapy of stomach ulcers and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. Prilosec 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.

After oral administration, the onset of the anti-secretory effect of prilosec occurs within one hour and maximum effect occurring within two hours. At 24 hours, inhibition of secretion is approximately 50% of maximum and duration of inhibition lasts up to 72 hours. Although prilosec has a very short plasma half-life, the anti-secretory effect lasts for a long time due to prolonged binding to parietal H+/K+ ATPase enzyme. When the drug has been discontinued, secretory activity will return to baseline over 3-5 days. The inhibitory effect of prilosec on acid secretion increases with repeated once-daily dosing, reaching a plateau after four days. In studies involving more than 200 patients, serum gastrin levels increased during the first 1 to 2 weeks of once-daily administration of therapeutic doses of prilosec in parallel with inhibition of acid secretion. Systemic effects of prilosec in the CNS, cardiovascular and respiratory systems have not been found to date.

Symptoms of overdose include confusion, drowsiness, blurred vision, tachycardia, nausea, diaphoresis, flushing, headache, and dry mouth.
