About Ctopride 50Mg Tablet

Ctopride 50Mg Tablet belongs to a class of drugs called 'gastroprokinetics' primarily used in the treatment of the disorders associated with reduced gastrointestinal motility. Besides this, Ctopride 50Mg Tablet also treats gastrointestinal disorders like dyspepsia (indigestion), bloating (feeling of stomach tightness due to gas), upper abdominal pain, anorexia (eating disorder), heartburn, nausea and vomiting. In the normal condition of digestion, the food is moved through the entire digestive tract (food pipe, stomach, small intestine and large intestine) by a rhythmic contraction, i.e. peristalsis movement. This regular movement of the digestive tract is called 'gastric motility.' When an individual suffers from a digestive motility problem, these contractions of the digestive tract do not work properly, leading to a variety of gastrointestinal issues. 

Ctopride 50Mg Tablet contains 'Itopride' that works by increasing the level of acetylcholine concentration which in turn increases the Gastrointestinal peristalsis movement thereby, accelerating gastric emptying time and eases the movement of food through the entire gastrointestinal tract. Ctopride 50Mg Tablet also stops the sensation of vomiting/nausea by blocking the D2 receptors located in the chemoreceptor trigger zone - CTZ of the brain responsible for inducing vomiting.

Take Ctopride 50Mg Tablet as prescribed. Your doctor will advise how often you take Ctopride 50Mg Tablet based on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience diarrhoea, stomach pain, headache, dry mouth or drowsiness. Most of these side effects of Ctopride 50Mg Tablet do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.
