i am a patient of Duodenal Ulcer along with Obesity,hypertension and Multiple Aches and pain like Backache, OA and pain in ribs etc. My Doctor has advised me Ganaton OD 150 mg daily. My pain in upper abdomen is still there and I my experiencing a lot of palpitation. Is that due to Ganaton or the summer heat ? Hoping to hear soon from you. naz.farahnaz@GMAIL.COM

Itopride (Ganaton) though is a safe drug but its response is
not as per requirement. It does not control the gastric
pain, acid reflux, bloating, flatulence. I tried many time
but not satisfied. On the advice of the doctor it was
taken with Pantoprazole to control . Can any one advise
whether Itopride is useful in IBS (Irritable bowls
syndrome)as well. Thanks.
