Hi,

Omeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor commonly prescribed to treat issues related to stomach acidity such as gastritis or peptic ulcer. Tramdol is an opioid analgesic prescribed for the moderate to severe pain like joint pain, muscular pain, etc. These two medications are not used in the treatment of chest infection.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
