DOMZEL-O Capsule

Domperidone 10 mg Capsule

Composition:

Each DOMZEL-O capsule contains domperidone 10mg and omeprazole 20mg.

Description:

DOMZEL-O is the brand name for the anti-ulcer and antiemetic combination of domperidone and omeprazole. This combination effectively treats gastric, duodenal and peptic ulcers, Helicobacter pylori infections and dyspepsia.

Omeprazole belongs to the class of proton pump inhibitors that works by blocking the H+/K+ ATP system (proton-pump system), which controls the movement of H+ ions through it. When omeprazole binds to this proton pump system, it prevents the inward movement of H+ ions into the stomach and thereby inhibits the final step of the gastric acid formation. This drug is activated in the acidic environment only.

Domperidone improves GI peristalsis and causes prolactin release. This drug also exhibits antiemetic activities and it works by blocking the dopamine receptors. It has strong affinities for the D2 and D3 receptors and regulates nausea and vomiting.
