Limzer capsules pharmachologic effect
Combined drug, the action of which is due to the components that make up its composition.
Omeprazole belongs to antiulcer drugs that inhibit the basal and stimulated secretion of hydrochloric acid in the parietal cells of the stomach due to a specific effect on H + -K + – ATP-ase (proton pump). The antisecretory effect after taking omeprazole develops very quickly during the first hour and lasts for a day. Omeprazole, due to its high lipophilicity, easily penetrates into the parietal cells of the stomach, concentrates in them and has a cytoprotective effect. The inhibitory effect increases in the first 4 days of administration. Omeprazole does not affect gastrointestinal motility.
Domperidone blocks peripheral dopamine receptors, eliminates the inhibitory effect of dopamine on the motor function of the digestive tract and increases the evacuation and motor activity of the stomach. Has antiemetic effect, soothes hiccups and eliminates nausea. Poorly penetrates the blood-brain barrier, practically does not affect dopamine receptors in the brain.
