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).

It works by reducing the amount of acid in the stomach which helps in the relief of acid-related indigestion and ulcers.
