About Pansec DSR Capsule

Pansec DSR Capsule is indicated for treating GERD (Gastro-esophageal reflux disease), which does not respond to Pantoprazole medications alone. It prevents the tendency of vomiting and nausea in people suffering from gastrointestinal problems.

Pansec DSR Capsule is a combination of Domperidone and Pantoprazole. The active ingredients fall under the class of dopamine antagonist and PPI (Proton pump inhibitor), respectively.

Pansec DSR is also prescribed to the patients of peptic ulcer and 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.

The action of this medication 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.

Pansec DSR medicine also works by blocking or reducing the stimulation in the ‘vomiting centre’ of your brain, which will eventually reduce the feeling of nausea and vomiting. The possible side effects of taking this medication can be headache, migraine, dryness of the mouth or breast pain.
