Troxipide is used in the treatment of gastric ulcers as well as gastric mucosal lesions (scars on gastro intestinal wall) caused in acute and chronic gastritis (inflammation of stomach lining).
How it works
Troxipide is a gastric cytoprotective agent. It increases the secretion of chemicals (prostaglandins) which further increase protection of the gastric mucosa. It also suppresses inflammation and helps in treatment of ulcers and lesions.
