Each capsule contains:

  • Rabeprazole 20 mg

DESCRIPTION

Rabeprazole is a rapid acting proton pump inhibitor (PPI). Rabeprazole is a substituted benzimidazole which suppresses gastric acid secretion by inhibiting the gastric H+/ K+ ATPase at the secretory surface of the gastric parietal cell. This enzyme is regarded as the acid (proton) pump within the parietal cell. Rabeprazole blocks the final step of gastric acid secretion. In general word, it blocks the activity of the proton pumps in the stomach wall that produce acid, thereby reducing the amount of acid produced in the stomach.

Domperidone is a peripheral dopamine D2 and D3 receptor antagonist. It provides relief from nausea by blocking receptors at the CTZ .It increases motility in the GIT and increases lower esophageal sphincter . It blocks dopamine receptors in pituitary gland increasing release of prolactin which in turn increases lactation.
