PROTOFI – D

Pantoprazole 40 mg + Domperidone SR caps

Protofi -D Capsule, a part of the dopamine antagonists group of drugs, prevents the tendency of vomiting and nausea in people suffering from gastrointestinal problems and also those who take certain medicines for Parkinson’s disease. The medicine tightens the muscles near the entrance of the stomach and relaxes the ones present at the exit. This action helps to speed up the passing of the food that you intake - from your stomach to your intestine, reducing the feeling of nausea and sickness, also preventing vomiting. It can also block, or reduce stimulation in the ‘vomiting centre’ of your brain, which will eventually reduce the feeling of nausea and vomiting.

Protofi -D Capsule is a part of the drug group known as dopamine antagonists. It can be used for treating the slow passage of food in your gastrointestinal tract, generally associated with gastritis or diabetes. For people suffering from this condition, Protofi -D Capsule can treat the symptoms of vomiting, nausea, bloating and feeling full. Apart from that, it can also prevent vomiting and nausea that is associated with Parkinson’s disease. The medication works by emptying your stomach quickly, reducing nausea. It also reduces or blocks stimulation in the part of the brain called the ‘vomiting centre’. The nerve messages coming from your gut will be suppressed and the feeling of nausea and vomiting is prevented. It is available in tablet or suspension form and has to be taken orally.

The usual dose of Protofi -D Capsule is 10 mg, which is generally taken 15-30 minutes prior to your meals. The maximum dose that is recommended for adults is 30 mg. The dose that would suit your body depends on your body weight, other medicines that you are currently taking and your health condition. Ensure that you take Protofi -D Capsule only in that amount as instructed by the doctor. In case you miss a dose, you can take it later. However, do not take two doses together to make up for the previous one that has been missed. Overdose can cause disorientation, light-headedness, losing muscle or balance control or difficulty in talking.
