Pankaj Kumar Says:

Recently my mother was prescribed Livpride -25 by doctor for treatment of acidity.
When we purchased the drug from chemist, we got Sulpride-25 containint Levosulpride salt. As the name was different, I checked over net and found that a drug with very similar name of salt(Levosulpiride) was an anti psychotic drug. So i went back to the chemist, checking whats wrong, and was given Livpride-25 which has Levosulpiride and was told that it was the actual prescription.
Now I want to know which one of them if any is actually related to the treatment of acidity??

The one you mentioned Levosulpride is actually just a misspelling, the correct drug name is Levosulpiride and it has several medical uses, as well as being an antipsychotic.

It also acts as a prokinetic agent, so it enhances gastrointestinal motility and can treat problems such as bloating, heartburn, IBS, gastritis and GERD.

You can learn more about it on this information page:


Is there anything else I can help with?

Lesuride is used for treatment of acidity or reflux. does it hv any side effects ? esp on the heart.?

Verwon Says:

Shuttu, Lesuride also contains Levosulpiride.

As to the possible side effects, they can include weight changes, dizziness, dry mouth and orthostatic hypotension.

Since it can cause the hypotension, I have to assume that it does have some type of effect on blood flow, which means it could also affect the heart, but since it isn't used in the U.S., I can't find any specific information.

Have you asked your doctor?

yes madhav,acidity may produce cough and laryngitis..levosulpiride with rabeprazole is a good option without any side effects.
even you can give domeperidone with pantoprazole.
