SPANZ-DSR is composed of two medicines, namely: Domperidone and Pantoprazole. Domperidone is a prokinetic and anti-nausea agent that helps to treat indigestion and stomach pain. On the other hand, Pantoprazole is a proton pump inhibitor that reduces the excess stomach acid formation by blocking the actions of an enzyme (H+/K+ ATPase or gastric proton pump). SPANZ-DSR is a widely used medicine to treat peptic ulcers and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). SPANZ-DSR prevents the release of stomach acid and relieves symptoms of food pipe lining inflammation (esophagitis), and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), or heartburn.

Domperidone works by increasing the movement of food through the stomach and the digestive tract more quickly and in this way reduces the feeling of bloating, or fullness and indigestion. On the other hand, it effectively blocks the action of a vomiting centre (chemoreceptor trigger zone – CTZ) located in your brain, that is responsible for inducing the feeling of nausea and vomiting. Pantoprazole helps in reducing the stomach acid by blocking the actions of an enzyme (H+/K+ ATPase or gastric proton pump). This proton pump lies in the cells of the stomach wall responsible for the release of gastric acid secretion damaging tissues in the food pipe, stomach, and duodenum.

It should be taken as prescribed by the doctor. Like all medicines, SPANZ-DSR may cause side effects, although not everybody gets them. The most common side effects of SPANZ-DSR are diarrhoea, stomach pain, flatulence (gas), dryness in the mouth, dizziness, and headache. Everyone doesn’t need to experience the above side effects. In case of any discomfort, speak with your doctor.

It is recommended not to use if you are allergic to any ingredinets present in it. Prolonged intake of Pantoprazole is associated with a low level of Vitamin B12 and low magnesium. Hence yearly test of Vitamin B12 and magnesium is required if you are taking SPANZ-DSR for the long term. Use of SPANZ-DSR is contraindicated in people with lupus (autoimmune inflammatory disease). Try to avoid caffeine-containing beverages (coffee, tea), spicy/deep fried/processed foods, carbonated drinks, acidic foods like citrus fruits/vegetables (tomatoes).

Medicinal Benefits

SPANZ-DSR plays a vital role in preventing nausea, vomiting, stomach upset, stomach pain, peptic ulcer, and other conditions due to hyperacidity or acid reflux. Pantoprazole prevents the proton pumps gate from producing an excessive amount of stomach acid. While Domperidone stops nausea (feeling sick) and vomiting (being sick) blocking messages between parts of your brain called the chemoreceptor trigger zone (CTZ) and the vomiting centre.
