Domperidone is used to treat vomiting or nausea caused due to indigestion, diseases or drugs. It is also used to relieve fullness of stomach, belching and heavy bloating, gas and heartburn for a longer period up to 2 weeks.
Esomeprazole (not omeprazole) is used to treat acidity (dyspepsia), gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD, frequent persistent heartburn, regurgitation or flow of bitter fluid into mouth, swallowing problems, and upper abdominal pain), ulcers in the stomach due to excessive acid production, infection (H. pylori) or pain-killer use (e.g. NSAIDs), and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome (tumors in the pancreas or the upper part of the small intestine, which may lead to increase acid secretion in the digestive tube).
Domperidone belongs to a class of medicines known as anti-emetics. Domperidone acts by helping food move faster through the food pipe, stomach and gut; thus normalising the digestion process.
Esomeprazole belongs to class of medications called proton pump inhibitors. It blocks the activity of the proton pumps in the stomach wall that produce acid, thereby reducing the amount of acid produced in the stomach.
