Drug Description


Itopride is a medication used to treat gastrointestinal disorders, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and functional dyspepsia. It works by increasing the production of acetylcholine, a chemical that helps the stomach empty its contents. It can help alleviate symptoms such as heartburn, nausea, bloating, and abdominal discomfort.

Use and Dosage

Itopride Hydrochloride tablets are typically taken orally before meals, usually three times daily. The tablets should be swallowed whole with water and should not be crushed or chewed.

The dosage and duration of treatment depend on the patient’s condition and medical history and should be determined by a healthcare professional. Follow the dosage instructions carefully and do not exceed the recommended dosage. Avoid taking alcohol while on the medication as it may increase the risk of side effects. Patients should also report any persistent or severe side effects to their healthcare provider.

Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next scheduled dose, then the missed dose can be skipped.
