If you get watery diarrhea with fever or stomach pain that persists, then it is better to consult the doctor. Let your doctor know if you do not get better even after 14 days of the treatment or experience some other problem.

Your doctor should also know about all other medicines you are taking as many of these may make this medicine less effective or change the way it works. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant, planning pregnancy or breastfeeding.

You need to keep taking Levopraz 10mg/75mg Capsule as prescribed by the doctor for it to be effective, even if the symptoms seem to disappear.

How Levopraz Capsule works

Levopraz 10mg/75mg Capsule is a combination of two medicines: Dexrabeprazole and Levosulpiride. Dexrabeprazole 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. 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).
