Omeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor. Proton pumps are present in the lining of the stomach, they produce acid during the digestion process. If there is an excess production of acid due to pathological reasons, ulcer formation or acid reflux may occur. Omeprazole reduces the excess acid production in the stomach by inhibiting the proton pumps. Ondansetron is a 5HT3 antagonist. It works by blocking the 5HT3 receptors present in the brain and gastrointestinal tract that may cause nausea and vomiting. Thus, it inhibits the stimulation of vomiting centers in the brain and prevents nausea and vomiting.
