About Trustocid 20 Capsule 15's

Trustocid 20 Capsule 15's belongs to the class of drugs known as Proton pump inhibitor (PPIs), which reduces the amount of acid your stomach makes. It treats gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), stomach ulcer, and Zollinger Ellison syndrome (overproduction of acid due to pancreatic tumour).

Trustocid 20 Capsule 15's contains omeprazole, which helps reduce stomach acid by blocking the actions of an enzyme (H+/K+ ATPase or gastric proton pump). This proton pump lies in the stomach wall cells and is responsible for releasing gastric acid secretion. Trustocid 20 Capsule 15's prevents the release of stomach acid and relieves symptoms of food pipe lining inflammation (esophagitis), gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), or heartburn.

Trustocid 20 Capsule 15's is taken with food in a dose and duration as advised by the doctor. Your dose will depend on your condition and how you respond to the medicine. An adult taking Trustocid 20 Capsule 15's might have common side effects like stomach pain, gas formation (flatulence), nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, and headache. Respiratory system problems can be reported in some children (more than 1 year) using Trustocid 20 Capsule 15's. These side effects are temporary and may get resolved after some time; however, if this side persists, contact the doctor.

Trustocid 20 Capsule 15's should not be given to the patient suffering from Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhoea. Trustocid 20 Capsule 15's is safe for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers but should be taken only after consulting a doctor. Tell your doctor if you have stomach or intestinal cancer, liver problem, are allergic to Trustocid 20 Capsule 15's, or will have an endoscopy in the future. Ask your doctor if you should stop taking Trustocid 20 Capsule 15's a few weeks before your endoscopy as it may hide some of the problems that would be spotted during an endoscopy. Prolonged use of Trustocid 20 Capsule 15's may be associated with an increased risk for osteoporosis-related fractures of the hip, wrist or spine due to loss of magnesium. Avoid using Trustocid 20 Capsule 15's with St John’s Wort (plant-based antidepressant), rifampin (antibiotic) and methotrexate (anti-cancer and anti-arthritis medicine) due to the severe drug interaction.

    No

    Diet & Lifestyle Advise

    • Avoid intake of acid or heartburn triggering foods or drinks like onions, peppermint, chocolate, caffeinated beverages, citrus fruits or juices, tomatoes and high-fat and spicy foods.
    • Before going to sleep try to raise your bedhead so that your head and chest are higher than your feet. Do not use piles of pillows, instead, one raised block is fine. This will not allow the stomach acid to backflow through your food pipe.
    • Avoid taking alcohol and smoking cigarette. Alcohol can raise the level of production of stomach acid leading to heartburn and acid reflux. On the other hand, nicotine smoking damages the valve (sphincter) which prevents backflow of the stomach acid back into the food pipe.
    • Include high fibre containing foods, berries, cherries, leafy green veggies (kale, spinach) and black peppers in your meal. These foods are full of antioxidant, calcium and vitamin B 12 that can help cope with the long term effects of the medicine. Fermented dairy products like miso, sauerkraut, and kimchi contain probiotics which help in the prevention of excess stomach acid production. Cranberry juice can be beneficial in the peptic ulcer and H Pyroli infection.
    • Avoid regular sitting continuously, as it can increase stomach acid production. Try to take a break of 5 minutes in 1 hour by brisk walking or stretching.

    Patients Concern

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Normally a thick layer of mucous protects the stomach against its own acid secretion. But, in the 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) (the duodenum). Zollinger Ellison syndrome is a rare condition in which a gastrin-secreting pancreas tumour causes excessive acid production leading to peptic ulcers.

    FAQs

    Trustocid 20 Capsule 15's is a type of medicine called a proton pump inhibitor (PPI). Proton pumps are enzymes in your stomach lining that help it make acid to digest food. Omeprazole prevents the proton pump from working properly. This reduces the amount of acid the stomach makes, relieving symptoms of food pipe lining inflammation (esophagitis), gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), or heartburn.

    Prolonged intake of Trustocid 20 Capsule 15's may weaken your bone and lower haemoglobin level. Your doctor may prescribe you Vitamin B-12 for enhancing haemoglobin and calcium/vitamin D/magnesium supplements for bone health.

    Prolonged intake of Trustocid 20 Capsule 15's may lead to atrophic gastritis (inflammation of stomach cells), Vitamin B12 deficiency and weakening of bones or osteoporosis (loss of calcium, magnesium and vitamin D). Your doctor may prescribe calcium, vitamin D or haemoglobin enhancing medications to cope with long term side effects.

    No. Trustocid 20 Capsule 15's is not prescribed for stomach cancer. Do not take Trustocid 20 Capsule 15's until your doctor has prescribed you. Trustocid 20 Capsule 15's is only indicated for the treatment of hyperacidity, acid reflux symptoms (GERD), heartburn and Zollinger Ellison syndrome.

    No. Gas and acidity are two different common discomforts. Acidity is caused when improper functioning of the valve (sphincter) is located at the junction of the stomach and food pipe. As a result stomach acid backflows and enters the upper part of the food pipe causing heartburn. On the other hand, gas is the result of the digestion of the food and drinks eliminating gases like carbon dioxide, hydrogen, nitrogen, methane, etc. from the body.

    Yes. Trustocid 20 Capsule 15's can alter certain medical tests like neuroendocrine tumours (secretin stimulation test), and urine screening tests for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). So before undergoing such diagnostics test contact your doctor.

    No. Trustocid 20 Capsule 15's prevents excess production of stomach acid, causing acid reflux and heartburn. If blood is coming in your stool or mucous, immediately contact the doctor.
