How it works
Levosulpiride inhibits the action of certain specific chemical substances in the brain as well as at specific sites in the stomach and the intestines. This promotes an early emptying of the stomach. Rabeprazole interferes with the final step of acid release in the stomach. This, in turn, reduces the acidity in the stomach and promotes healing of ulcers.
