Itopride - Clinical Use

Clinical Use

Typically, itopride is indicated in the treatment of GI symptoms caused by reduced GI motility:

  • dyspepsia of a non-ulcer type (gastric "fullness", discomfort, and possible pain)
  • anorexia
  • heartburn
  • regurgitation
  • bloating
  • nausea and vomiting
  • other possible gastric, prolactin, or dopamine related conditions

Itopride is typically taken three times a day. The dose is usually taken on an empty stomach about an hour before meals. However, the dosage and details of administration may vary depending on the patient’s age, symptoms, and other factors.

Itopride was shown to significantly improve symptoms in patients with functional dyspepsia and motility disorders in placebo-controlled trials.

These studies concluded that the reduction in the severity of symptoms of functional dyspepsia after 8 weeks of treatment with itopride indicated that itopride was significantly superior to placebo and that itopride yielded a greater rate of response than placebo in significantly reducing pain and fullness.
