Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is due to mucosal damage produced by the abnormal reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus. Symptoms include stomach pain usually on the left side (Heartburn), Regurgitation of food and difficulty in swallowing. Treatment includes omeprazole, pantoprazole, lansoprazole, and rabeprazole and diet and lifestyle changes. Ganaton contains itopride and helps increase gastric motility. It is one of the treatment options for GERD.
