Protopride 75mg/20mg Capsule SR


Overview

Introduction

Protopride 75mg/20mg Capsule SR is a prescription medicine which is used in the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (acid reflux), intestinal ulcers, and irritable bowel syndrome. It reduces excess acid production in the stomach and prevents the reflux of stomach acid into the food pipe.

Protopride 75mg/20mg Capsule SR is to be taken in the dose and duration advised by your doctor. For better absorption of the medicine, take it in an empty stomach. A high dose or overdose may have harmful effects on the body.

This medication is generally well tolerated with very minimal side effects. Before taking the medicine always consult your doctor if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or if you are suffering from any severe stomach, liver, kidney disease, or any known disease. You must stop this medication and consult your doctor in case you encounter any allergic reaction such as skin rash, swelling, and itching.

How Protopride Capsule SR works

Protopride 75mg/20mg Capsule SR is a combination of two medicines: Levosulpiride and Rabeprazole. 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). Rabeprazole 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.
