modeOfAction

Mode of Action of Raciper D Cap 15'S

How Does It Work?

  • A pump called the proton pump in the stomach is responsible for the flow of stomach acids.
  • Esomeprazole works by binding to this proton pump in stomach cells and blocks the acid secretion.
  • Domperidone acts by increasing the motility of the stomach and intestines so that acid does not reflux back into the food pipe.
