Pantoprazole(40 mg)


Pantoprazole is used for treating symptoms of gastro-esophageal reflux disease (heartburn, back flow of acid from stomach, difficulty in swallowing), inflammation of esophagus, excess acid secretion by stomach (Zollinger-Ellison syndrome), in prevention of intestinal or stomach ulcers in patients caused by prolonged pain killer use.

How it works

Pantoprazole belongs to a class of drugs known as proton pump inhibitors. It acts by reducing the amount of acid produced in the stomach.

Fever, Blurred vision, Diarrhoea, Dizziness, Hip fracture, Vertigo, Itching
Alginic Acid(150 mg)


Alginic acid is used in combination with antacids (such as aluminum hydroxide, sodium /magnesium carbonates) in treatment of heartburn (including heartburn in pregnancy), gastric reflux (regurgitation)/reflux esophagitis (inflammation of food pipe caused by flow back of digestive acids produced in stomach), and acid indigestion.

How it works

Alginic acid (also known as polymannuronic acid) is a natural carbohydrate obtained from brown algae (species of seaweed). It belongs to the physical barrier group of medicines. Alginic acid forms foam like coating on esophagus and gastric contents. It thus, protects the food pipe from gastric acids in case there is a backward flow by neutralizing the acids, and thereby preventing inflammation or ulceration of esophagus.
