Description:

ESOZEL-D is the brand name for the anti-ulcerant and antiemetic formulation of esomeprazole and domperidone. This combination effectively treats acid reflux-related disorders.

Esomeprazole is one of the major anti-ulcerants that belong to the class of the substituted benzimidazoles. Esomeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor, which prevents the final step of gastric acid formation i.e., the influx of H+ ions into the stomach. The proton pump system or the H+/ K+ ATPase enzyme system are found on the parietal cells, which are the highly specialized epithelial cells present in the stomach’s inner lining. Esomeprazole binds to the proton pump systems and prevents the acid formation in the stomach. Domperidone works as a GI emptying agent and a peristaltic stimulant. Its prokinetic properties come from its peripheral dopamine receptor blocking activities. This drug empties the GI tract and reduces the bowel transit time effectively by reducing the pressure on esophageal sphincter and increasing peristalsis along the GI tract. Domperidone has a high affinity for D2 and D3 dopamine receptors and regulates nausea and vomiting.
