How does the drug work ?
Pantoprazole sodium sesquihydrate belongs to a class of drugs known as proton pump inhibitors. Pantoprazole sodium sesquihydrate acts by reducing the production of stomach acid, stopping its backflow and relieving heartburn symptoms. Pantoprazole sodium sesquihydrate reduces the acid production in the stomach by inhibiting the action of proton pumps (which are the ion channels, found on the cells lining the stomach). Domperidone is a distinct blocker of dopamine receptors. Domperidone facilitates gastric emptying by increasing esophageal and gastric peristalsis. The antiemetic property is also related to dopamine receptor blocking activity, as domperidone has a high affinity for D2 and D3 dopamine receptors. These receptors are found in the chemoreceptor trigger zone usually present outside the blood-brain barrier that regulates nausea and vomiting.
