How to choose stomach medicine? Common types of stomach medicines

① H2 receptor resistance dosage form

Drugs used to block the action of histamine on gastric parietal cells and reduce gastric acid secretion. It is widely used to treat gastric inflammation, ulcers, repair and protect gastric mucosa, gastric bloating, etc.

② Gastric mucosa protective type

Drugs that increase gastric defense by protecting the gastric mucosa. Different from drugs that inhibit gastric acid secretion or neutralize gastric acid, gastric mucosal protective drugs treat symptoms such as stomach pain by protecting the gastric mucosa.

③ Acid type

Neutralizes excess stomach acid. Common ingredients include magnesium oxide, sodium bicarbonate, anhydrous calcium hydrogen phosphate, etc., which are often used in combination with other gastric medicine ingredients.

④ Anticholinergic dosage forms

Anticholinergic drugs are drugs that inhibit the action of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is not only a transmitter of parasympathetic nerves, but also a transmitter of motor nerves and sympathetic nerves. When there is too much secretion, it can easily lead to stomach pain. This drug can improve gastrointestinal cramps and stomach pain.

⑤ Digestive enzyme type

If the food you eat is not properly broken down and absorbed, symptoms such as indigestion and loss of appetite will occur. Digestive enzymes are recommended to help weaken the digestive system caused by decreased gastrointestinal function, aging, stress, etc.

The difference between stomach medicine and intestinal medicine

"Intestinal regulators" are nutritional supplements that adjust the intestinal environment. Adjusting the balance of intestinal flora by supplementing probiotics can soften stools and relieve constipation. The “gastrointestinal drugs” introduced above are drugs that directly relieve the symptoms of gastrointestinal discomfort. If you want to suppress uncomfortable symptoms immediately, it is best to choose "gastrointestinal medicine". However, if the intestinal environment is disturbed and mild discomfort occurs and you want to improve the flora ecology, you can choose "intestinal agents". For example, the well-known Ruoyuan Tablets and Xinbiao Feiming are "intestinal agents".
