2) Potassium ion competitive acid blocker (P-CAB)


3) Histamine (H2) receptor antagonists

Characteristics: Acid secretion inhibitor


4) Selective muscarinic receptor antagonist

Characteristics: Acid secretion inhibitor


5) Anticholinergic drugs

Characteristics: Parasympatholytic agent. Do not use in patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia, glaucoma, or heart disease.

3) Tissue repair/mucus production secretion promoter

c:Gastrointestinal motility improving drug

1) Parasympathomimetic drugs (acetylcholinergic agonists)

Characteristics: Stimulates the sympathetic nervous system and promotes gastrointestinal motility and secretion of digestive juices.


2) Antidopamine drugs (dopamine receptor antagonists)

Characteristics: Antagonizes the binding of dopamine to D2 receptors, promotes the release of acetylcholine, and has antiemetic effects.

metoclopramide,domperidone,itopride hydrochloride

merchandise:GANATON Tablets 50mg

3) Opiate agonists

Characteristics: Acts on opioid receptors and regulates gastrointestinal motility.
