New Delhi, Jun 10 (PTI) Akums Drugs & Pharmaceuticals on Monday said it has launched a combination drug for gastrointestinal tract disorders.

The contract development and manufacturing organisation has launched Rabeprazole and Levosulpiride SR capsules after getting approval from the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI), it said in a statement.

Akums Drugs & Pharmaceuticals Joint Managing Director Sanjeev Jain said the medication offers an effective remedy by easing symptoms, enhancing gastrointestinal function, and boosting patients' overall well-being.
