Oesocid- L
Facilitate Gastric Emptying Time

Composition : Esomeprazole 40mg GR + Levosulpiride 75mg PR

Form : Capsules / Pack : 1 X 10s / Type : AA

Description : The absolute bioavailability is 64% after a single dose of Esomeprazole 40mg and increases to 89% after repeated once daily administration with 97% plasma protein bound. Levosulpiride blocks the enteric dopamine (D2 ) receptors (both neuronal & muscular) and also acts as an agonist at serotonin (5-HT4 ) receptor. Both the above actions increase the release of acetylcholine (Ach). Ach increases GI peristalsis and also increases lower esophageal sphincter pressure thereby preventing reflux of GI contents towards esophagus.
Esomeprazole demonstrates significantly greater efficacy than omeprazole in the treatment of GERD patients with erosive esophagitis. The tolerability and safety of esomeprazole are comparable to that of omeprazole - The American J of Gastroenterology, Vol 96, Iss 3, Mar 2001, P. 656-665.
