About Kinpride Tablet 10's

Kinpride Tablet 10's belongs to a group of medicines called 'gastrointestinal prokinetic agent' used to treat gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (reflux of gastric contents into the oesophagus), and symptoms of indigestion (slow gastric emptying). Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) occurs when stomach acid frequently flows back into the food pipe (oesophagus). Indigestion is the feeling of stomach fullness (bloating) due to excess acid and gas formation. 

Kinpride Tablet 10's contains 'Cinitapride' that increases the pressure of the inferior oesophageal sphincter, thereby preventing the back-flow of food and acid from the stomach into the mouth. This helps treat gastro-oesophageal acid reflux. Kinpride Tablet 10's increases gastrointestinal motility by enhancing the strength of contractions without disrupting their rhythm, thereby helps treat indigestion and improves gastrointestinal function. 

You are advised to take Kinpride Tablet 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, nausea, drowsiness and diarrhoea. 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 Kinpride Tablet 10's if you have a history of gastrointestinal bleeding, mechanical perforation/obstruction, or movement disorder. Consult your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Kinpride Tablet 10's may cause drowsiness, so drive only if you are alert. Kinpride Tablet 10's should not be given to children as safety has not been established. Avoid consuming alcohol along with Kinpride Tablet 10's as it could lead to increased drowsiness and can elevate the production of stomach acid.

FAQs

Kinpride Tablet 10's works by increasing the movement of the muscles of the oesophagus (food pipe), stomach, and intestines during digestion. Kinpride Tablet 10's acts upon a chemical messenger called ‘serotonin’ located in the nerves of the digestive tract, thereby increasing the release of acetylcholine. As a result, stomach and intestines motility speed up, thereby improving gastrointestinal function.
Patients with a history of gastrointestinal bleeding/ulcer, movement disorders, mechanical obstruction or perforations (holes) in the intestine should contact a doctor before using Kinpride Tablet 10's.
Diarrhoea might be a side-effect of Kinpride Tablet 10's. Drink lots of fluids/water and eat non-spicy food if you experience diarrhoea. Besides this, probiotics and prebiotic intake can help cope with water loss. If you find blood in stools (tarry stools) or if you experience severe diarrhoea, consult your doctor. Do not take anti-diarrheal medicine on your own.
Avoid lying down immediately after meals. Raise the head of the bed 10-20 cm by putting a pillow so that the head and chest are above the waist. Besides this, avoid smoking, alcohol drinking, and eating spicy oily foods. This will helps to prevent acid reflux and heartburn.
