Mechanism of action
It is an antisecretory drug which is histamine H2 receptor antagonist properties. It suppresses antagonist properties and causes suppression of gastric acid secretion by inhibiting the proton pump in parietal cells. It blocks the final step of acid secretion. It gets protonated and transferred to active ingredient sulfenamide.
It increases the peristaltic stimulation. It facilitates the gastric emptying and decreases the small bowel transit time by increasing the esophageal and gastric peristalsis. The antiemetic property is related to blocking of dopamine activity.
