How does the drug work ?
Domperidone: Domperidone is a distinct blocker of dopamine receptors which 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. Domperidone facilitates gastric emptying by increasing the esophageal and gastric peristalsis. Paracetamol: Paracetamol belongs to the class of drugs known as antipyretics (fever reducing) and analgesics (painkiller). Paracetamol acts on the temperature-regulating region of the brain, which results in increased blood flow across the skin which causes sweating and heat loss thereby reducing fever. It acts as a painkiller and reduces the pain by increasing the pain threshold. Tramadol: Tramadol belongs to a class of drugs known as opiate or narcotic analgesics. It acts on the certain areas of the brain and the nervous system by blocking the effect of chemicals such as serotonin, nor-epinephrine that causes pain. Therefore, it is the commonly prescribed drug for acute pain management.
