INTRODUCTION

MOSART 5MG contains Mosapride which belongs to the group of medicines called Gastrointestinal Agents. It is used in the treatment of heartburn, nausea and vomiting caused by chronic gastritis (condition that occurs when your stomach lining becomes inflamed) and disorders associated with reduced gastrointestinal motility (digestive problems that occurs when the nerves or muscles of the gut do not work in a coordinated way). It is also used as an adjuvant therapy with oral gastrointestinal lavage solution for barium enema x-ray examination.

A barium enema x-ray (examination) is a special type of X-ray that takes images of the large intestine (colon, rectum and anus) which helps the healthcare providers to diagnose certain gastrointestinal tract conditions or understand its associated symptoms.

MOSART 5MG is not recommended for use if you are allergic to mosapride. It is also not recommended for use if you have any haemorrhage (bleeding problems) or digestive blockage. It should be used with caution in patients with liver disease (like non-alcoholic steatohepatitis) and patients with kidney disease who are undergoing dialysis. Consult your doctor before taking this medicine.

MOSART 5MG is not recommended for use in pregnant and breastfeeding women. It should be used with caution in children and adolescents (aged 5 to 18 years). The common side effects associated with the use of MOSART 5MG are abdominal pain, diarrhoea, dry mouth, rash, itchy welts, nausea, or feeling fullness. Consult your doctor if any of the symptom worsens.
