INTRODUCTION

L URIDE TABLET contains Levosulpiride which belongs to the group of medicines called Prokinetic agents. It is used to treat nausea, vomiting and indigestion. It can also be used to treat diabetic gastroparesis.

Diabetic gastroparesis is a stomach condition caused due to poorly controlled diabetes. It prevents the stomach muscles from emptying its digested contents into the intestines. This creates a feeling of fullness even after eating only a little amount of food along with nausea and lack of appetite.

Before taking L URIDE TABLET inform your doctor if you have any kidney or heart problems. You must also inform your doctor if you have epilepsy, mania or any other mental illness as a precaution.
