Rekool D 20mg Strip Of 15 Capsules Description

Rekool D capsule is an anti-reflux medicine. It is used to treat Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) also known as acid reflux condition. It is a combination medicine containing rabeprazole and do

mperidone. The acid from the stomach moves back up to the food pipe along with contents of the stomach characterised by heartburn, chest pain, burning, pain and regurgitation of food or sour liquid because of irritation in the stomach. This medicine lowers the acid secretion in the stomach and prevents the outflow of contents of the stomach to the food pipe. Rekool D capsule should be taken at least 30 minutes before meals for the best result. Avoid the consumption of spicy and oily food while on this medicine. Before using the Rekool D capsule, inform the doctor if you are pregnant, planning a pregnancy or breastfeeding and about your detailed medical history.

Mode of Action of Rekool D 20mg Strip Of 15 Capsules

How Does It Work?

  • A pump called the proton pump in the stomach is responsible for the secretion of stomach acids. Rabeprazole binds to this proton pump in stomach cells, thus blocking acid secretion.
