Levosulpiride + Pantoprazole is a combination of two medicines: Levosulpiride + Pantoprazole1 and Levosulpiride + Pantoprazole2. Levosulpiride + Pantoprazole1 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). Levosulpiride + Pantoprazole2 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.
Take Panvoz L exactly as directed by your doctor. It is best to take one capsule on an empty stomach daily.
Q. What are the contraindications associated with the use of Panvoz L?
The use of Panvoz L should be avoided in patients with known allergy to any of the components or excipients of this medicine.
Q. Can the use of Panvoz L cause dizziness?
Yes, the use of Panvoz L can cause dizziness (feeling faint, weak, unsteady or lightheaded) in some patients. If you feel dizzy or lightheaded, it is better to rest for some time and resume once you feel better.
Q. Does the use of Panvoz L lead to increased risk of fractures?
Several studies in adults suggest that Panvoz L may increase the risk of osteoporosis-related fractures of the hip, wrist or spine. The risk of fracture was more in patients who received high dose. High dose can mean multiple daily doses, and long-term therapy (a year or longer).
