About Rab Fur L Capsule

Rab Fur L Capsule is used to treat gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD), acidity, heartburn, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, Helicobacter pylori infection, irritable bowel syndrome, indigestion, duodenal and gastric ulcers. 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 acidity. 
 
Rab Fur L Capsule is a combination of two drugs: Rabeprazole (proton pump inhibitor) and Levosulpiride (prokinetic agent). Rabeprazole works by blocking an enzyme called the gastric proton pump, which is responsible for acid production. Levosulpiride works by increasing the pressure of the inferior oesophageal (food pipe) sphincter, thereby preventing the backflow of food and acid into the mouth. Together, Rab Fur L Capsule helps in preventing acid reflux, thereby providing relief from acidity and heartburn.
 
You are advised to take Rab Fur L Capsule 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, vomiting, gas, abdominal pain, dizziness, 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 if you have a history of gastrointestinal bleeding or intestinal obstruction. On long-term treatment, Rab Fur L Capsule may cause osteoporosis and hypomagnesemia. Consult a doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Rab Fur L Capsule may cause drowsiness and dizziness, so drive only if you are alert. Rab Fur L Capsule is not recommended for children as safety and effectiveness have not been established. Avoid consuming alcohol along with Rab Fur L Capsule as it could lead to increased drowsiness and elevate stomach acid production.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Acidity: 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): It occurs when stomach acid frequently flows 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. 

Stomach ulcers: Stomach ulcers are sores that develop on the stomach and intestine lining due to erosion of the protective stomach lining. Symptoms include nausea, changes in appetite, bloody or dark stools, unexplained weight loss, vomiting, and indigestion. 

Indigestion: Indigestion is the feeling of fullness. It occurs due to slow gastric emptying. Symptoms include stomach pain, bloating, heartburn, nausea, and vomiting.
