What are the uses of Aciloc 300?
It is prescribed to treat ulcers, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (Acid reflux), and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.
Ulcers can be defined as sores on the stomach lining or small intestine. Ulcers in the stomach are known as Gastric ulcers. Intestinal ulcers are known as Duodenal ulcers.
Aciloc is potent in treating ulcers.
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
GERD is a chronic illness. It occurs when a muscle above the stomach relaxes excessively, allowing stomach contents to rise through the food pipe into the mouth.
It causes heartburn and injury to the food pipe (esophagus).
It is a condition when the stomach produces too much acid.
Aciloc treats Zollinger-Ellison syndrome very effectively.
How does Aciloc work?
Ranitidine is an active ingredient of Aciloc 300, which is a Histamine H2 receptor blocker.
It reduces the amount of acid produced in the stomach.
Histamine is the chemical that stimulates the parietal cells to release gastric acid.
Ranitidine in Histamine H2-receptors inhibits the effect of Histamine on the parietal cells that line the stomach.
This is how it stops the stomach from producing too much acid.
Always adhere to your doctor's suggestions.
