About

Dopamine and acetylcholine are two of the major neurotransmitters involved in several natural mechanisms. The gastric tract also releases dopamine from the stomach and influences GIT from its upper to the lower part.Ganaton 50mg Tablet 10 'S belongs to a class of drugs called “Prokinetic agents”, commonly referred to as gastro propulsive medicines used for the prevention and management of nauseous states. It also helps relieve symptoms of functional or non-ulcerative dyspepsia, a health condition that affects the stomach and normal bowel movements resulting in indigestion, nausea, and vomiting. As compared to some of the other propulsive drugs like Domperidone, it does not carry the same level of risk to the heart.

The outcome of these actions is manifested in the form of enhanced gastric movements and digestion as well as increased pressure in the lower part of the esophagus (food pipe) that helps prevent the reflux of stomach contents.
