OMEPRAZOLE+DOMPERIDONE

About

DOMPERIDONE+OMEPRAZOLE belongs to a group of medicines called gastrointestinal agents used to treat heartburn, indigestion, epigastric pain, gastro-oesophageal 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.

DOMPERIDONE+OMEPRAZOLE is a combination of two drugs, namely: Omeprazole (proton pump inhibitor) and Domperidone (a dopamine antagonist). Omeprazole works by blocking the action of an enzyme called gastric proton pump, which is responsible for the production of acid. Domperidone works by increasing the movements and contractions of stomach muscles. Together, DOMPERIDONE+OMEPRAZOLE helps in treating acidity.

Take DOMPERIDONE+OMEPRAZOLE 30-60 minutes prior to food. You are advised to take DOMPERIDONE+OMEPRAZOLE 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 dry mouth, stomach pain, diarrhoea, headache, and flatulence. 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. Consult your doctor before taking DOMPERIDONE+OMEPRAZOLE if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. DOMPERIDONE+OMEPRAZOLE may cause sleepiness, so drive only if you are alert. DOMPERIDONE+OMEPRAZOLE should not be given to children as safety has not been established. Avoid consuming alcohol along with DOMPERIDONE+OMEPRAZOLE as it could lead to increased drowsiness and can elevate the production of stomach acid.

    Patients Concern

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD): It 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: 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

    Zollinger-Ellison syndrome: It is characterised by the formation of tumours 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.
