Each FORPPI-D tablet contains pantoprazole 40mg and domperidone 10mg.
FORPPI-D is the brand name for the anti-ulcerant combination of pantoprazole and domperidone. This combination addresses different conditions that are associated with acid-reflux in the GI tract. This combination also eases the digestion by acting as a potent peristalsis stimulant.
Pantoprazole works as a proton pump inhibitor that works by blocking the H+/K+ ATPase system that is present in the surface area of the gastric parietal cells that are located in the inner lining of the stomach. By blocking the proton pump system, pantoprazole prevents the final step of gastric acid production, wherein the influx of H+ ions takes place. This way, pantoprazole reduces the secretion of stomach acid and suppresses the acid-reflux related problems.
Domperidone is a highly specific antagonist of D2 dopamine receptors in the chemoreceptor trigger zone of area postrema in the medulla oblongata and it reduces the urge to vomit. It improves the motility in the gastrointestinal tract, peristalsis and aids GI emptying.
