Each tablet of Losec utilises Multi-Unit Pellet System (MUPS®) which is built on patented technology. Losec MUPS tablets dissolve in the stomach to release over a thousand tiny micro pellets of omeprazole which then disintegrate rapidly in the small intestine to be absorbed and take effect.
Losec is the only PPI with MUPS technology available in pharmacy. The advantages of this is:
• Small tablet
• Can be swallowed on its own, or dissolved in a drink
• Ideal for patients who have difficulty swallowing capsules
