About Rabekind-CP Capsule 10's

Rabekind-CP Capsule 10's belongs to a class of drugs called gastrointestinal agents used to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), peptic ulcers and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. 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. Zollinger-Ellison syndrome is characterised by the formation of tumours in the upper part of the small intestine, which leads to excess acid production.

Rabekind-CP Capsule 10's is a combination of two drugs: Rabeprazole (proton pump inhibitor) and Cinitapride (gastroprokinetic agent). Rabeprazole works by blocking the action of proton pumps that are involved in producing stomach acid. Thereby, it reduces the amount of acid produced by the stomach and prevents excess acid from flowing back into the food pipe. On the other hand, Cinitapride increases the food pipe movement (oesophagus), small intestine and stomach, thereby enhancing bowel movement and the digestive tract gets emptied from the food in a shorter time. Together, Rabekind-CP Capsule 10's helps in preventing acid reflux, thereby provides relief from hyperacidity and heartburn.

Take Rabekind-CP Capsule 10's as prescribed by your doctor. You are advised to take Rabekind-CP Capsule 10's for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you based on your medical condition. You may experience diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, headache, dizziness, flatulence (gas), stomach pain, or constipation in some cases. Most of these side effects of Rabekind-CP Capsule 10's do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

If you are allergic to Rabekind-CP Capsule 10's or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. Rabekind-CP Capsule 10's is not recommended for children as safety and effectiveness were not established. Avoid taking Rabekind-CP Capsule 10's if you are pregnant, especially in the first 3 months of pregnancy as it may cause harm to the fetus. Therefore, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please inform your doctor before taking Rabekind-CP Capsule 10's. Inform your doctor if you have any risk factors for reduced vitamin B12 as Rabekind-CP Capsule 10's may reduce the absorption of vitamin B12. Drive only if you are alert as Rabekind-CP Capsule 10's may cause drowsiness. Avoid alcohol consumption as it may lead to increased stomach acid production, thereby increasing acidity and heartburn.

    Patients Concern

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD): The stomach is usually protected from acid by a mucous layer. In some cases, due to excess acid production, the mucous layer gets irritated or eroded, which leads to complications like GERD, hyperacidity, peptic ulcers, and heartburn. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) occurs when stomach acid frequently flows back into the food pipe (esophagus). This backflow (acid reflux) irritates the food pipe and causes heartburn. Symptoms include heartburn, a sour or bitter taste in the mouth, and difficulty swallowing.

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

    Zollinger-Ellison syndrome: It is characterized by the formation of tumors in the upper part of the small intestine, which leads to excess acid production. Symptoms include bloating, burping, weight loss, loss of appetite, nausea, and vomiting.
