This drug belongs to the family of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). It reduces the secretion of gastric acids and thus makes it possible to combat the pains due to the reflux of the acid content of the stomach in the esophagus. It acts prolonged but delayed: the decline in the acidity of the stomach requires a delay of a few days.
It is used in the treatment of short-term symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux (heartburn, regurgitation ...).
WARNING (Contents)
The effect of proton pump inhibitors is not immediate. 2 or 3 days of treatment may be required to observe a decrease in pain. This medication may not be appropriate if heartburn is too much (less than twice a week). Consult your pharmacist.
It is best to consult a doctor in the following situations:
  • digestive disorders appearing for the first time, or if disorders have changed recently;
  • disorders associated with weight loss;
  • difficulty swallowing or persistent abdominal discomfort.
Precautions are necessary in patients with hepatic impairment .
People with gastroesophageal reflux should avoid using drugs containing aspirin or NSAIDs that increase stomach acid. Paracetamol, on the other hand, is safe to treat pain or fever.
Driver: This medicine may cause dizziness and difficulty in seeing.
This medicinal product must not be combined with medicinal products containing atazanavir ( REYATAZ ).
Pregnancy :
No adverse effects to the unborn child have been established with this medication. Nevertheless, as a precaution, its use during pregnancy is reserved for situations for which there is no therapeutic alternative.

The data currently available do not indicate whether this drug passes into breast milk: it is not recommended for use during breast-feeding.
This medication is taken before a meal, preferably at the same time each day. It should be swallowed with a glass of water, without being crushed or crushed.

Usual dosage:

  • Adult over 18 years: 1 tablet per day.
Treatment should not exceed 4 weeks without medical advice. If symptoms persist after 2 weeks of treatment or recurrence at discontinuation of treatment, testing may be required.

TIPS (summary)
Drug therapy for gastroesophageal reflux can only be conceived when the following simple measures have not been able to eliminate the symptoms:
  • do not lie down within two hours after a meal;
  • do not lean forward (bend knees to pick up objects);
  • do not wear clothes that compress the abdomen (sheath ...);
  • raise the head of the bed 5 to 10 cm by placing wedges under the feet or a thick pillow under the mattress;
  • avoid soft drinks, prefer easy-to-digest foods.
These tips are intended to prevent the acid content of the stomach from flowing back into the esophagus during digestion.
If you are a smoker, continuing smoking is an important barrier to treatment; nicotine increases gastric acidity and reduces the effectiveness of the muscle that closes the junction between the esophagus and the stomach.
The most frequent (in about 1% of patients): headache, diarrhea .
Uncommon: dizziness , constipation, nausea, vomiting, dry mouth, abdominal discomfort, itching, rash , tiredness, discomfort, sleep problems.
Rarely: joint or muscle pain, blurred vision, increased transaminases or triglycerides , depression.
Very rare: allergic reaction (urticaria, angioedema , anaphylactic shock ), edema, decreased white blood cells or platelets in the blood, hallucinations, confusion of ideas, hepatitis .

GLOSSARY (summary)

Abbreviation for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. Family of anti-inflammatory drugs that are not derived from cortisone (steroids), and the best known of which is aspirin.

anaphylactic shock
Shock of allergic origin manifested by a sudden drop in blood pressure, due to extreme dilation of the blood vessels. It occurs after contact with an allergenic substance (food, insect bites, injection or drug absorption).

The strict medical sense of diarrhea is "emission of stools too frequent and too abundant". In fact, common sense equates diarrhea with the notion of fluid and frequent stools. Normally, stools are pasty, but the emission of liquid or barely formed stools, without pain or particular associated disorder, is not pathological. Diarrhea can occur when liquid stool emissions are repeated during the day and the needs are overwhelming or painful.
Many medicines can accelerate intestinal transit and make the stools more liquid, without this undesirable effect being of real concern.
Antibiotics can alter the digestive flora, essential for digestion, and cause more or less troublesome but benign diarrhea. The effect appears immediately or after a few days of treatment. A severe and exceptional form of diarrhea, pseudomembranous colitis, can be observed after antibiotic treatment; this condition results in the emission of mucus and false membranes (resembling skin flaps) associated with abdominal pain; constipation may replace the initial diarrhea. Pseudomembranous colitis can occur several days after discontinuation of antibiotic treatment and requires urgent medical advice.

skin rash
Appearance of pimples or plaques on the skin. These lesions can be due to a food, a drug, and translate an allergy or a toxic effect. Many viruses can also cause pimple eruptions: rubella, roseola and measles are the most common.

Qualifies certain tablets or capsules in which the active substance is protected from the acidity of the stomach.

white blood cells
Cell present in the blood. There are several types: neutrophils, which increase during infections; the eosinophilic polynuclear cells, which are high in allergic persons or in cases of parasitosis; basophilic polynuclear cells; lymphocytes and monocytes, the number of which increases in the event of viral infection or of bone marrow disease.

Inflammation of the liver. It may be due to a drug, a virus, alcohol or some other cause.
Viral hepatitis usually heals without treatment. Unlike hepatitis A and E almost always benign, hepatitis B and C can become chronic: the virus persists in the patient's body which remains contagious but does not necessarily suffer from liver problems. Chronic hepatitis is said to be active when the virus continues to destroy liver cells, resulting in increased transaminases in the blood.

Hepatic insufficiency
Inability of the liver to perform its function, which is essentially the elimination of some waste, but also the synthesis of many biological substances essential to the body: albumin, cholesterol and coagulation factors (vitamin K, etc.).

Small cells in the blood: they participate in the formation of clots.

Allergy edema usually affects the face. Quincke edema results in a sometimes spectacular swelling. Eyelids are often the first to be affected. In rare cases where edema affects the throat, respiratory problems may occur and urgent treatment is required.

allergic reaction
Reaction due to hypersensitivity of the organism to a drug. Allergic reactions can take a wide variety of aspects: urticaria, angioedema, eczema, eruption of pimples resembling measles, etc. Anaphylactic shock is a generalized allergic reaction that causes discomfort due to a sudden drop in blood pressure.

gastroesophageal reflux
Raising the gastric juice in the esophagus and in the back of the throat, favored by the extended position after meals, by leaning forward, by wearing clothes that compress the abdomen. This reflux is sometimes due to a hiatal hernia.

Trouble felt by a person with an illness. The same symptom can translate different diseases and the same disease does not necessarily give the same symptoms in all the patients.

Enzymes dosed in the blood, which rate rises during some hepatitis. They are included in blood tests as SGOT and SGPT or ASAT and ALAT.

Fats circulating in the blood. They come mainly from the assimilation of fatty substances, sugars and alcohol.

Symptom that can mean an impression of loss of balance (common sense) or, more strictly, a sense of rotation on oneself or the environment (medical sense).

IPRAALOX is used for short-term treatment of symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux (eg heartburn, acid regurgitation) in adults.

Gastroesophageal reflux is the rise of acid from the stomach into the esophagus, which can become inflammatory and painful. This can cause symptoms such as burning in the chest going up to the throat (heartburn) and sour taste in the mouth (acid regurgitation).

Acid reflux and heartburn may disappear after a day of treatment with IPRAALOX. However this medication is not intended to provide immediate relief. It may be necessary to continue treatment for 2 or 3 consecutive days for symptom improvement.

2. BEFORE YOU TAKE IPRAALOX 20 mg Gastro-Resistant Tablets?

· If you need to do an endoscopy or a urea breath test.

· If you have ever developed a skin reaction after treatment with a drug similar to IPRAALOX reducing gastric acid.

· If you need to do a specific blood test (Chromogranin A).

· Unintentional weight loss (not related to diet or exercise program),

· Vomiting, particularly if repeated,

· Vomiting blood, appearing under the aspect of dark coffee beans,

· Blood in the stool, which can be black or tarry,

· Difficulty or pain in swallowing,

· Pallor and weakness (anemia),

· Pain in the chest,

· Stomach ache,

· Severe and / or persistent diarrhea, as IPRAALOX has been associated with a slight increase in infectious diarrhea.

Your doctor may decide that you need to undergo additional tests.

If you have a blood test, tell your doctor that you are taking IPRAALOX.

Acid uproar and heartburn may disappear after one day of treatment with IPRAALOX. However this medication is not intended to provide immediate relief. You should not take it as a preventive measure.

If you suffer from heartburn or repeated and persistent indigestion, regular medical follow-up is recommended.
