FAQs

Q. For how long should I take DDR?
DDR can be used for different durations depending on the condition. It is used in adults for 4 weeks to treat heartburn related to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in which acid from stomach enters food pipe (esophagus). It is used for 8 weeks to heal acid-related damage to the food pipe (called reflux esophagitis or RE) and for up to 6 months to continue healing of erosive esophagitis.
Q. How does DDR work for the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease?
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) happens when high acid secretion in your stomach enters your food pipe (esophagus) and causes a burning feeling in chest (heartburn) or throat, sour taste or burping. DDR acts by decreasing the acid produced in the stomach and relieves the symptoms of GERD.

DDR can cause calcium deficiency and hence an increased risk of bone fractures on long term use.
