LUPILA D TABLET
LUPILA D TABLET belongs to a group of medicines called gastrointestinal agents used to treat gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and peptic ulcer disease. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) occurs when stomach acid frequently flows back into the food pipe (oesophagus). Peptic ulcers are sores that develop on the inner lining of the intestine and stomach.
LUPILA D TABLET is a combination of two drugs: Ilaprazole (proton pump inhibitor) and Domperidone (a dopamine antagonist). Ilaprazole is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI). Proton pumps are tiny substances in the stomach lining that help it make acid to digest food. Ilaprazole prevents proton pumps from working properly. This reduces the amount of acid your stomach makes. 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, or fullness and indigestion. It also blocks messages between parts of your brain called the chemoreceptor trigger zone (CTZ) and the vomiting centre. This stops you from feeling sick (nauseous) and prevents you from vomiting. Together, LUPILA D TABLET helps treat acidity related problems.
Take LUPILA D TABLET 15-30 minutes prior to food. Swallow LUPILA D TABLET as a whole with a glass of water; do not chew, or break the tablet. You are advised to take LUPILA D TABLET 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 diarrhoea, stomach pain, flatulence, dryness in the mouth, dizziness, and fatigue. 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.

LUPILA D TABLET is a combination of two drugs, namely: Ilaprazole and Domperidone. Ilaprazole works by blocking the action of an enzyme called gastric proton pump, which is responsible for acid production. Domperidone works by increasing the movements and contractions of stomach muscles. Together, LUPILA D TABLET helps in treating acidity related problems.
Diarrhoea might be a side-effect of LUPILA D TABLET. Drink enough fluids and eat fibre rich food if you experience diarrhoea. Consult your doctor if you experience excessive diarrhoea or if you find blood in stools.
Avoid lying down immediately after meals to prevent acid reflux. Raise the head of the bed 10-20cm by putting a pillow so that the head and chest are above the waist. This helps in preventing acid reflux.
Dry mouth could be a side-effect of LUPILA D TABLET. Limiting caffeine intake, avoiding smoking and mouthwashes containing alcohol, drinking water regularly, and chewing sugar-free gum/candy might stimulate saliva and prevent drying of the mouth.
Do not take LUPILA D TABLET for longer durations unless prescribed by the doctor. Consult your doctor if your condition does not improve even after taking LUPILA D TABLET for 7 days.
