Is Pantocid L the same as Pantocid DSR?

Are pantacid l and pantacid dsr same? Earlier doctor prescribed pantacid l for gastric ,stomach burning and suggested for endoscope, as per the biopsy report there was a small nodule. After a month doctor suggested for pantacid dsr after that I had loose stools for 2 to 3 times in morning as soon as I wake up. So what I should prefer ,is this because of pantacid dsr?

Hello,

Pnatocid DSR contains domperidone with pantoprazole; while Pantocid L contained levosulpiride with pantoprazole. Diarrhea is one of the side effects related to domperidone use.

Report this to your doctor to change therapy.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
