Hi,
Lesuride contains Levosulpiride and this is a prokinetic, which means that it increases the speed of emptying the stomach. It reduces gas formation and due to faster emptying the acidity problems.
It is comparitively safe drug. Rarely it can lead to allergy, headacke , etc. levosulpiride is an effective and safe drug in the treatment of dysmotility-like functional dyspepsia and non-erosive reflux disease.
