About MAC RD CAPSULE

MAC RD CAPSULE is a gastrointestinal medicine composed of Rabeprazole (stomach acid reducer) and Domperidone (nausea/vomiting reducer). Together they reduce the amount of acid your stomach makes and decrease the symptoms of nausea and vomiting. It treats symptoms of acid reflux due to hyperacidity, stomach ulcer (Peptic ulcer disease), and Zollinger Ellison syndrome (overproduction of acid due to a pancreatic tumour). Besides this which is used short-term to treat symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

GERD is a condition in which the sphincter (valve) located at the uppermost part of the stomach gets irritated and damaged due to excessive stomach acid production. As a result, the stomach acid and juice flow back into the food pipe, leading to stomach upset and heartburn. Heartburn is the post effect of the acid reflux with a burning like feeling that rises from the stomach towards the neck.

MAC RD CAPSULE contains two medicines, namely Rabeprazole and Domperidone. Rabeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor that helps in reducing the stomach acid by blocking the actions of an enzyme (H+/K+ ATPase or gastric proton pump). This gastric proton pump lies in the cells of the stomach wall responsible for the release of gastric acid secretion damaging tissues in the food pipe, stomach, and duodenum (uppermost part of the small intestine). On the other hand, Domperidone is a prokinetic agent that increases the motility of the upper gastrointestinal tract and block the vomiting inducing centre (chemoreceptor trigger zone-CTZ).

It is better to take MAC RD CAPSULE an hour before a meal or without a meal for its best results. MAC RD CAPSULE should be swallowed whole with a glass of water. Do not chew, crush, or break it.
