What is Mylan 6150? What kind of medication is the
green capsule with "MYLAN 6150" written on its sides?
Mylan 6150 capsule is Omeprazole
(generic Prilosec) 20 mg. The medicine is used to treat symptoms of
reflux disease (GERD) and other conditions caused by excess stomach
acid. Each green capsule can be visually divided into two halves - dark
green and light green with "MYLAN 6150" imprinted in white, or light
blue, or bluish-green on both. The capsules may look slightly different
as the dark green half with "MYLAN 6150" imprint can be found on the
right or on the left of the capsule. Mylan 6150 capsules are available
in packs of 30 and 100.
Mylan's Omeprazole is also available in 10 mg and 40 mg strengths
as Mylan 5211 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 6150 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.
