ESOMEFOL SL CAP(esomeprazole (EC) 40mg & levosulpiride (SR) 75mg cap)


Esomefol-Sl Capsule 10’S 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.
Esomefol-Sl Capsule 10’S 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, Esomefol-Sl Capsule 10’S helps in preventing acid reflux, thereby provides relief from acidity and heartburn.
