modeOfAction

Mode of Action of Protera D Capsule

How Does It Work?

  • Protera D Capsule works by the combined action of its two ingredients, pantoprazole and domperidone.
  • Pantoprazole reduces the intake of certain ions in the stomach wall that are necessary for the production of digestive acids in the stomach, and hence leads to reduced acid production.
  • Domperidone is an antiemetic agent. It works by increasing the movement in the stomach and intestines so that acid does not flow back into the food pipe.
