Perrigo announced the launch of store brand Omeprazole Delayed Release Orally Disintegrating Tablets (ODT) 20mg for the treatment of frequent heartburn (occurring ≥2 days a week).

Omeprazole ODT utilizes MelTech technology that allows the tablet to dissolve in the mouth without water. Each dose provides 24-hour relief and is intended for use as a 14-day course of treatment every 4 months. Omeprazole, a proton pump inhibitor (PPI), blocks the final step of acid production through specific inhibition of the H+/K+ ATPase enzyme system at the secretory surface of the gastric parietal cell.
