hi there, the omeprazole has been prescribed for prophylactic treatment for gastritis as all the pain killers that you take tend to damage your gastric lining and it is good practice to take an antacid with the painkillers. Assuming that you are taking them he might have prescribed it to you. There is no harm in taking them. Kaimosin is a medicine which helps to dissolve small fibrin clots which may be formed at the site of injury and hinders fast healing. The treatment prescribed to you is a sound one and do continue with it to get benifit. Take care.
