About RIVE IT CAPSULE

RIVE IT CAPSULE is a combination medicine of proton pump inhibitor and prokinetic agent used to lower the increased level of stomach acid. It treats GERD (gastro-oesophagal reflux disease), and peptic ulcers. 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.

RIVE IT CAPSULE is a combination of two drugs, namely: Rabeprazole and Itopride. Rabeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) that works by blocking the action of an enzyme called gastric proton pump, which is responsible for acid production. It minimizes the release of acid from the stomach that provides relief in heartburn and acid-related digestion. While Itopride works on the part of the brain that is responsible for controlling vomiting.  It increases gastric emp undying, improves gastric sensitivity and tension by increasing the stomach's movement and intestines in the upper digestive tract. It also has anti-emetic action. Together, RIVE IT CAPSULE helps in preventing acid reflux, thereby provides relief from acidity.

Take RIVE IT CAPSULE 30-60 minutes before food. Do not chew, or break the tablet; swallow it as a whole with a glass of water. You are advised to take RIVE IT 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, stomach 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 before taking RIVE IT CAPSULE if you have a history of gastrointestinal bleeding, mechanical perforation/obstruction, or movement disorder. On long term treatment, RIVE IT CAPSULE may cause osteoporosis and hypomagnesemia (low levels of magnesium). Do not take RIVE IT CAPSULE if you are pregnant or breastfeeding unless prescribed by the doctor. RIVE IT CAPSULE causes drowsiness, so drive only if you are alert. RIVE IT CAPSULE should not be given to children as safety has not been established. Avoid consuming alcohol with RIVE IT CAPSULE as it can lead to increased drowsiness and increased acid production.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD): The stomach is usually protected from the 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, and peptic ulcers. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) occurs when stomach acid frequently flows back into the food pipe (oesophagus). This backflow (acid reflux) irritates the food pipe and causes heartburn. Symptoms include heartburn, sour or bitter taste in the mouth, and difficulty swallowing. Peptic ulcers are sores that develop on the lining of the stomach and intestine due to erosion of the stomach's protective lining. Symptoms include nausea, changes in appetite, bloody or dark stools, unexplained weight loss, vomiting, and indigestion.
