About Essom-L Capsule 10's

Essom-L Capsule 10's belongs to a group of medicines called gastrointestinal agents used to treat gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Gastroesophageal reflux disease occurs when stomach acid frequently flows back into the food pipe (oesophagus); this causes acidity, pain and heartburn. Symptoms include heartburn, sour or bitter taste in the mouth and difficulty swallowing.

Essom-L Capsule 10's contains Esomeprazole and Levosulpiride. Esomeprazole works by blocking the action of an enzyme called gastric proton pump, which is responsible for the production of acid. Levosulpiride works by increasing the stomach and intestinal movement and pressure of the inferior oesophageal (food pipe) sphincter, thereby preventing the backflow of food and acid into the mouth. Together, Essom-L Capsule 10's helps in preventing acid reflux, thereby providing relief from acidity and heartburn.

You are advised to take Essom-L Capsule 10's for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you, depending on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience certain common side-effects such as headache, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhoea, flatulence, nausea and vomiting. Most of these side-effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side-effects persistently.

Inform your doctor before taking Essom-L Capsule 10's if you have a history of gastrointestinal bleeding or intestinal obstruction. On long-term treatment, Essom-L Capsule 10's may increase the risk of bone fractures. Consult your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Essom-L Capsule 10's may cause drowsiness and dizziness, so drive only if you are alert. Essom-L Capsule 10's should not be given to children as safety has not been established. Avoid consuming alcohol along with Essom-L Capsule 10's as it could lead to increased drowsiness and can elevate the production of stomach acid.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD): The stomach is usually protected from acid by a mucous layer. In some cases, due to excess acid production, the mucous layer gets eroded, which leads to complications like GERD, acidity, heartburn and peptic ulcers. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) occurs when stomach acid frequently flows back into the food pipe (oesophagus). This backflow (acid reflux) irritates the food pipe and causes heartburn and acidity. Symptoms include heartburn, sour or bitter taste in the mouth and difficulty swallowing.
