ZEGERID® (omeprazole/sodium bicarbonate) is a combination of omeprazole,
a proton-pump inhibitor, and sodium bicarbonate, an antacid. Omeprazole is a
substituted benzimidazole, 5-methoxy-2-[[(4-methoxy-3,5-dimethyl-2-pyridinyl)methyl]sulfinyl]-1H-benzimidazole,
a racemic mixture of two enantiomers that inhibits gastric acid secretion. Its
empirical formula is C17H19N3O3S,
with a molecular weight of 345.42. The structural formula is:








Omeprazole is a white to off-white crystalline powder which melts with decomposition at about 155°C. It is a weak base, freely soluble in ethanol and methanol, and slightly soluble in acetone and isopropanol and very slightly soluble in water. The stability of omeprazole is a function of pH; it is rapidly degraded in acid media, but has acceptable stability under alkaline conditions.
ZEGERID is supplied as immediate-release capsules and unit-dose packets as
powder for oral suspension. Each capsule contains either 40 mg or 20 mg of omeprazole
and 1100 mg of sodium bicarbonate with the following excipients: croscarmellose
sodium and sodium stearyl fumarate. Packets of powder for oral suspension contain
either 40 mg or 20 mg of omeprazole and 1680 mg of sodium bicarbonate with the
following excipients: xylitol, sucrose, sucralose, xanthan gum, and flavorings.
