Inrab 20 MG Tablet is a proton inhibitor drug that is used in treatment of digestive conditions like acid reflux, heartburn, stomach ulcers, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, gastro-esophagea reflux disease and ulcers caused by a bacteria called Helicobacter pylori.

Acid reflux occurs when your stomach produces an excess of acid. Inrab 20 MG Tablet works by countering this process effectively.
