About DDR 60 Capsule 10's

DDR 60 Capsule 10's comes into the category of antiulcer medications called proton pump inhibitors, primarily used to treat heartburn caused by stomach problems and gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, erosive oesophagitis. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) happens when gastric acid reaches the oesophagus and causes pain, heartburn, and inflammation. Heartburn is a condition in which a person feels the stomach's burning feeling from the stomach to the chest or neck. Erosive oesophagitis is a condition in which the oesophagus gets damaged by harmful acid resulting in inflammation, scarring and ulcers. The oesophagus is a tube that connects the mouth to the stomach.

DDR 60 Capsule 10's works by blocking the action of the enzyme known as gastric proton pump responsible for the production of acid. This reduces the amount of acid produced by the stomach resulting in the healing of the ulcers and prevents the formation of new ulcers.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Acidity: The stomach is usually protected from the acid by a mucous layer. In some cases, due to excess acid production, the mucous layer gets eroded, which leads to complications like acidity, GERD, heartburn, peptic ulcer and corrosive esophagitis.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD): It is a condition that occurs when stomach acid frequently flows back into the food pipe (oesophagus). This backflow (acid reflux) irritates the food pipe and causes heartburn. Factors that can contribute to GERD include chocolate, foods containing caffeine, foods such as spicy foods, fried foods, pregnancy or obesity, lying down after a meal, drinking alcohol or smoking.

Corrosive Esophagitis: This is a condition that happens when harmful substances damage the oesophagus. The oesophagus is a pipe that connects the mouth to the stomach. The damage may cause ulcers, inflammation or scarring. Possible causes include swallowing strong chemicals such as dishwashing liquid, detergents and drain cleaners, radiation therapy and certain pills, including pain medicines and drugs for osteoporosis (weak bones).
