What is cisapride? Cisapride increases the rate at
which your esophagus, stomach, and intestines move during digestion. It also
increases the rate at which your stomach empties into your intestines and
increases the strength of your lower esophageal sphincter (the muscle between
your stomach and your esophagus). Cisapride is used to treat gastric reflux (the
regurgitation of stomach acid into the esophagus), which is usually experienced
as heartburn. Cisapride may also be used for purposes other than those listed in
this medication guide.
Please consult your physician before taking any medication.
