Medical Description

Omez-DSR capsule is an anti-reflux medicine. It is used to treat gastrointestinal reflux disease (GERD). It contains a combination of domperidone and omeprazole. This capsule is used when it does not

respond to omeprazole therapy alone. Gastrointestinal reflux disease or GERD is a condition where acid from the stomach comes up to the food pipe. This backflow of acid irritates the lining of the food pipe and leads to chest pain and heartburn. This medicine should be taken as directed by the doctor and in doses and duration as prescribed. Take this capsule at least 30 mins before food. Do not miss any dose or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor. Along with taking medicine on time, making certain lifestyle modifications can help to manage your acidity problem better. Try eating smaller meals, eat slowly and avoid overeating and lying down immediately after having a meal. Limit intake of alcohol, avoid smoking and maintain a healthy weight, consult the doctor to understand what works for you best. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant, planning a pregnancy or breastfeeding and about all the medicines and supplements you take and all the conditions or diseases you suffer from before starting Omez-DSR capsule.
