What is Mylan 5211? What kind of medication is the
green capsule with "MYLAN 5211" written on its sides?
Mylan 5211 capsule is Omeprazole
(generic Prilosec) 10 mg. The medicine is used to treat symptoms of
gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and other conditions caused by excess stomach
acid. The capsules may look slightly different as the green color can
be darker or lighter in different batches. However, each capsule has
"MYLAN 5211" imprinted in white, light
blue, or bluish-green on both sides. Mylan 5211 capsules are usually
available in packs of 30.
Mylan's Omeprazole is also available in 20 mg and 40 mg strengths
as Mylan 6150 and Mylan 5222 capsules.
Omeprazole was first marketed in the US under the brand name Losec in
1989. In 1990, at the request of FDA, the brand name Losec was changed
to Prilosec to avoid confusion with the diuretic Lasix (Furosemide, see
Mylan 216). Due to the fact that
(including Mylan 5211 capsules) features the quality of decreasing the
amount of acid produced in the stomach, it may be used for the
treatment of irritation of the esophagus caused by GERD, for healing of
erosive esophagitis, for the treatment of alcoholic or life-style
associated gastritis, for short-term treatment of ulcers of the stomach
or small intestines, and even to decrease the risk of stomach bleeding
in patients suffering from severe forms of ulcers. Omeprazole is one of
the most widely prescribed stomach drugs available under various brand
names throughout the world.
