    well I take mine every day - twice a day when symptoms very bad so assume they last 24 hours.  Take them 30 minds before eating

    With Omeprazole, you should start to feel better within two or three days.   However, it can take up to 4 weeks for them to work properly so you may still have some heartburn during this time.  I don’t know how long it works for. Maybe the patient leaflet will give you information on this.  I took omeprazole many years ago and it was effective.  However, I don’t remember how many hours of heartburn relief I got.
