Somac Heartburn Relief is used for lasting symptomatic relief of frequent heartburn and stomach acid complaints due to gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD). These symptoms can be caused by "washing back" (reflux) of food and acid from the stomach into the food pipe, also known as the oesophagus. Reflux can cause a burning sensation in the chest rising up to the throat, also known as heartburn. Frequent heartburn is when you have heartburn for two or more days a week. Heartburn that occurs frequently is a typical symptom of GORD. Somac Heartburn Relief is not the right medicine for you if you suffer heartburn only occasionally (one episode of heartburn a week or less), or if you want immediate relief of heartburn. Somac Heartburn Relief will start to suppress acid within a few hours, however it is not intended to provide instant symptom relief. For effective, lasting relief, you should take a full course of Somac Heartburn Relief (see 'How to take Somac Heartburn Relief' below). Somac Heartburn Relief belongs to a group of medicines called proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). This medicine works by decreasing the amount of acid the stomach makes to give relief from the symptoms.
Somac Heartburn Relief tablets contain the equivalent of 20 mg pantoprazole.
