HowEsofine-LS Capsule works
Esofine-LS Capsule is a combination of two medicines:Levosulpiride and Esomeprazole. Levosulpiride is a prokinetic which works byincreasing the release of acetylcholine (a chemical messenger). This increasesthe movement of stomach and intestines, and prevents reflux (acid going up tothe food pipe). Esomeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI). It works byreducing the amount of acid in the stomach which helps in the relief ofacid-related indigestion and ulcers.
