Esomac L Capsule SR


Overview

Introduction

Esomac L Capsule SR is a combination of two medicines which is effective in treating gastroesophageal reflux disease (acid reflux). This prescription medicine reduces excess acid production in the stomach. It also prevents the reflux of stomach acid into the food pipe.

A high dose or overdose may have harmful effects on the body. Always consult your doctor if you are suffering from any severe stomach, liver, or kidney disease.

This medication is generally well tolerated with very minimal side effects. Before taking the medicine, inform your doctor if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking any other medicines of any other health condition or disease.

How Esomac L Capsule SR works

Esomac L Capsule SR is a combination of two medicines: Levosulpiride and Esomeprazole. Levosulpiride is a prokinetic which works by increasing the release of acetylcholine (a chemical messenger). This increases the movement of stomach and intestines, and prevents reflux (acid going up to the food pipe). Esomeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI). It works by reducing the amount of acid in the stomach which helps in the relief of acid-related indigestion and ulcers.
