Esofine DSR capsule is an anti-reflux medicine used to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). GERD does not respond to esomeprazole medication alone. It is a condition in which acid from the stomach flows back to the food pipe and causes heartburn, belching, nausea and chest pain. Esofine DSR capsule contains esomeprazole and domperidone as its active ingredient. This medicine works by decreasing the amount of acid produced in the stomach and improving the motility of the food pipe. Thus, it reduces the backflow of stomach content to the food pipe. Take this medicine as prescribed by your doctor for the prescribed duration. You should take this medicine at least an hour before the meal. Esofine DSR capsule is not for use in patients below 18 years old. While on this medicine, avoid oily, spicy and fatty foods. Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption.
