About RACIPER L CAPSULE

RACIPER L CAPSULE belongs to a group of medicines called gastrointestinal agents used to treat gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Gastroesophageal reflux disease occurs when stomach acid frequently flows back into the food pipe (oesophagus), this causes acidity, pain and heartburn. 

RACIPER L CAPSULE is a combination of two drugs, namely: Esomeprazole (proton pump inhibitor) and Levosulpiride (prokinetic agent). Esomeprazole works by blocking the action of an enzyme called gastric proton pump, which is responsible for the production of acid. Levosulpiride works by increasing the pressure of the inferior oesophageal (food pipe) sphincter, thereby prevents backflow of food and acid into the mouth. Together, RACIPER L CAPSULE helps in preventing acid reflux, thereby provides relief from acidity and heartburn.

Take RACIPER L CAPSULE 1hour prior food. Swallow RACIPER L CAPSULE as a whole with a glass of water; do not chew, or break the tablet. You are advised to take RACIPER 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, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhoea, flatulence, nausea, and vomiting. 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 before taking RACIPER L CAPSULE if you have a history of gastrointestinal bleeding or intestinal obstruction. On long term treatment, RACIPER L CAPSULE may increase the risk of bone fractures. Do not take RACIPER L CAPSULE if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
