Parit general information

What is Parit used for?

Parit tablets 20mg (also known as Aciphex) are used to treat conditions caused by gastric reflux, which is when the acidic contents of the stomach flow back into the oesophagus. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD), as this condition is known, causes symptoms like heartburn and dyspepsia (indigestion and abdominal pain), and can damage the oesophagus causing inflammation (oesophagitis). Parit tablets 20mg are also used to treat and prevent peptic ulcers in the stomach (gastric ulcers or damage to the stomach lining) and duodenum (duodenal ulcers or damage to the lining of the upper intestine); also gastric ulcers caused by use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID). Parit tablets 20mg are also used as combination therapy to treat gastric ulcers that are caused by infection of the stomach with the bacterium Helicobacter pylori, in conjunction with using antibiotics. Parit tablets 20mg are also used to treat symptoms of acid-related dyspepsia that can be caused by eating high fat or acidic foods, or Zollinger-Ellison syndrome in which increased levels of the hormone gastrin causes an excessive production of gastric acid.

How does Parit work?

Parit tablets 20mg (also known as Aciphex) contain rabeprazole, a proton pump inhibitor that is used to treat conditions caused by excess gastric acid, by reducing the amount of gastric acid released into the stomach. Stomach acid is needed for digestion of proteins in the diet and is made by the parietal cells of the stomach wall. Gastric acid production is dependent on the action of the enzyme H+/K+-ATPase, which is the proton pump responsible for pumping positive hydrogen ions out of the cells into the stomach; and this increases the acidity of the stomach contents. Rabeprazole in Parit tablets 20mg inhibits the functioning of the H+/K+-ATPase, which prevents acid secretion by blocking the source of acid production. This action of rabeprazole reduces the acidity of the stomach contents, which reduces the acid damage that can be caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD) and oesophagitis and relieves symptoms caused by excess gastric acid, like heartburn and dyspepsia. By inhibiting gastric acid secretion Parit tablets 20mg also help prevent the formation of gastric (stomach) and duodenal (upper intestine) peptic ulcers and also helps ulcers and damage caused by gastric reflux to heal.

What does Parit contain?

Parit tablets 20mg contain the active ingredient rabeprazole (20mg), which is a proton pump inhibitor that is used to treat conditions caused by excess gastric acid secretion.

Treating gastric reflux with Parit

Parit tablets 20mg contain rabeprazole, which is used to treat conditions caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD). Gastric reflux is when the acidic contents of the stomach flow back into the oesophagus (gullet), because the sphincter muscle at the junction of the oesophagus and stomach that normally prevents backflow of stomach contents, does not function properly or is damaged. Symptoms caused by gastric reflux include heartburn and dyspepsia (indigestion and abdominal pain), and damage to the oesophagus causing inflammation (oesophagitis). Rabeprazole in Parit tablets 20mg reduces acid secretion by parietal cells of the stomach wall, by blocking the action of the enzyme H+/K+-ATPase, which is responsible for acid production. This action of rabeprazole reduces the acidity of the stomach contents, which reduces the acid damage that can be caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD) and oesophagitis, relieves symptoms caused by excess gastric acid like heartburn and dyspepsia; as well as helping damaged tissues caused by excess acid to heal.

Parit for peptic ulcers

Parit tablets 20mg contain the active ingredient rabeprazole, which is used to treat and prevent peptic ulcers in the stomach (gastric ulcers or damage to the stomach lining) and duodenum (duodenal ulcers or damage to the lining of the upper intestine), caused by excess secretion of gastric acid; also gastric ulcers caused by use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID). Parit tablets 20mg are also used as combination therapy to treat and prevent gastric ulcers that are caused by infection of the stomach with the bacterium Helicobacter pylori, in conjunction with using antibiotics. Rabeprazole in Parit tablets 20mg reduces acid secretion by parietal cells of the stomach wall, by blocking the action of the enzyme H+/K+-ATPase, which is responsible for acid production. This action of rabeprazole reduces the acidity of the stomach contents, which reduces acid damage to the stomach wall and allows ulcers that have already developed to heal.
