Introduction to Esokro 40mg Injection
Esokro 40mg Injection is a medication containing esomeprazole, belongs to the proton pump inhibitor class and is primarily employed to alleviate symptoms associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and conditions involving excess stomach acid like Zollinger Ellison syndrome. It is also instrumental in promoting the healing of erosive esophagitis caused by stomach acid.
It falls under the class of drugs known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). These medications work by inhibiting the proton pump in the stomach lining. This action reduces the secretion of stomach acid, effectively addressing acid related symptoms and promoting the healing of esophageal damage.
To maximize effectiveness, take it exactly as directed on the label or as prescribed by your doctor.
Common side effects of it may include headaches, diarrhea, nausea, stomach pain, gas, constipation, or dry mouth. If these side effects persist or worsen, consult your healthcare provider.
If you have a history of severe liver disease, lupus, osteoporosis or low bone mineral density, or low levels of magnesium in your blood. Long term use of proton pump inhibitors like it, may increase the risk of bone fractures, so discuss bone health strategies with your doctor.
If a dose of it is missed, use it as soon as possible. However, if it's close to the next scheduled dose, skip the missed one. Avoid doubling up on doses to compensate for a missed one.
How Esokro 40mg Injection Works
Esomeprazole, commonly known as Nexium, acts by specifically targeting an enzyme in the stomach lining called (H+, K+)-ATPase. This enzyme is crucial for producing stomach acid. Esomeprazole binds to this enzyme, disrupting the final step in acid production. As a result, it effectively reduces both normal and excessive stomach acid levels. Notably, its impact is long-lasting, persisting for more than 24 hours, providing relief from conditions associated with excessive stomach acid, such as heartburn and acid reflux.
