Ortopan-D Tablet 10's is composed of two medicines, namely: Domperidone and Pantoprazole. Domperidone is a prokinetic and anti-nausea agent that helps to treat indigestion and stomach pain. On the other hand, Pantoprazole is a proton pump inhibitor that reduces the excess stomach acid formation by blocking the actions of an enzyme (H+/K+ ATPase or gastric proton pump). Ortopan-D Tablet 10's is a widely used medicine to treat peptic ulcers and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Ortopan-D Tablet 10's prevents the release of stomach acid and relieves symptoms of food pipe lining inflammation (esophagitis), and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), or heartburn.
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. On the other hand, it effectively blocks the action of a vomiting centre (chemoreceptor trigger zone - CTZ) located in your brain, that is responsible for inducing the feeling of nausea and vomiting. Pantoprazole helps in reducing the stomach acid by blocking the actions of an enzyme (H+/K+ ATPase or gastric proton pump). This 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.

Normally a thick layer of mucous protects the stomach against its own acid secretion. But, in long run, it gets eroded by excessive stomach acid production leading to complications like GERD, peptic ulcer, and Zollinger Ellison syndrome. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a gastrointestinal disorder that occurs when stomach acid frequently flows back into the food pipe (oesophagus). This backflow (acid reflux) irritates the food pipe that causes heartburn. On the other hand, a peptic ulcer is a painful condition followed by the development of sores or ulcers in the stomach lining or duodenum (first part of the small intestine). Zollinger Ellison syndrome is a rare condition in which a gastrin-secreting tumour of the pancreas causes excessive acid production leading to peptic ulcers.
