www.adcock.com.Scheduling status:Not scheduled.Proprietary name and dosage form:PPI-Gap (capsule).Pharmacological classification:D 22.2 vitamins, others.Pharmacological action:Proton pump inhibitors (PPI) depresses absorption of vitamin B12.Vitamin B12 status declines during prolonged PPI use in older adults.PPIs have been associated with an increased risk of vitamin and mineral deficiencies impacting vitamin B12, vitamin C, calcium, iron and magnesium metabolism.PPI use can inhibit the active magnesium transport in the intestine. PPI-associated hypomagnesaemia is rare, but potentially life-threatening.The US Food and Drug Administration advised that long-term use of PPI can induce hypomagnesaemia. Thus although mechanism and incidence rate remain unclear, there seems little doubt that PPIs may cause hypomagnesaemia. All PPIs were associated with hypomagnesaemia, with esomeprazole having the lowest risk and pantoprazole having the highest risk. The risk of PPI-associated hypomagnesaemia was higher in males and the elderly population.Indications:PPI-Gap capsules assist in the maintenance of the essential nutrients that may be depleted as a result of the treatment of reflux and gastric ulcers.Identification:PPI-Gap capsules are yellow and white hard gelatin capsules.Presentation:PPI-Gap capsules are packed in PVC/PVDC/aluminium blister packs of 30 capsules.Registration number:To be allocated.
