INTRODUCTION

COOL RAB 20 INJECTION contains Rabeprazole which belongs to the group of medicines called Proton pump inhibitors. It is used to treat Gastro-oesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) and peptic ulcer. It is used as an alternative to oral therapy when patients are not able to swallow rabeprazole orally.

GERD is a chronic digestive disease in which the stomach acid frequently flows into the oesophagus leading to the irritation of lining of the food pipe. Symptoms include heartburn, chest pain, nausea, sensation of lump in throat and stomach discomfort.

Peptic ulcers are painful sores that develop on the linings of the stomach, oesophagus and/or intestines. Symptoms include stomach pain, flatulence, indigestion, vomiting and fatigue.

COOL RAB 20 INJECTION will be administered to you only by a doctor or a nurse into the vein. Before starting the treatment with COOL RAB 20 INJECTION inform your doctor if you have any liver problems. You must also inform your doctor if you have vitamin B12 deficiency, osteoporosis or any tumours in your stomach.

USES OF COOL RAB 20 INJECTION

  • Treats Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease

HOW COOL RAB 20 INJECTION WORKS

COOL RAB 20 INJECTION is a proton pump inhibitor.

As a result, it reduces the chances for acid reflux into the oesophagus, heals peptic ulcers and esophageal lesions and prevents its recurrence.
