Pantoprazole and Domperidone (SR) Capsules MANUFACTURERS SUPPLIERS - THIRD PARTY CONTRACT MANUFACTURING - PCD PHARMA FRANCHISE
Pantoprazole and Domperidone (SR) Capsules come with the brand name “PANTAGRA- DSR” and are composed of two medicines, namely: Domperidone and Pantoprazole. Domperidone is a prokinetic and anti-nausea agent that helps to treat indigestion and stomach pain. On the other hand, Pantoprazole is a proton pump inhibitor that reduces the excess stomach acid formation by blocking the actions of an enzyme (H+/K+ ATPase or gastric proton pump). It is a widely used medicine to treat peptic ulcers and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
Pantoprazole and Domperidone (SR) Capsules prevent the release of stomach acid and relieve symptoms of food pipe lining inflammation (esophagitis), gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), or heartburn. Domperidone works by increasing the movement of food through the stomach and the digestive tract more quickly and in this way reduces the feeling of bloating, fullness and indigestion. On the other hand, it effectively blocks the action of a vomiting centre (chemoreceptor trigger zone – CTZ) located in your brain, which is responsible for inducing the feeling of nausea and vomiting. Pantoprazole helps in reducing stomach acid by blocking the actions of an enzyme (H+/K+ ATPase or gastric proton pump). This proton pump lies in the cells of the stomach wall responsible for the release of gastric acid secretion damaging tissues in the food pipe, stomach, and duodenum.
