Prokinetic drugs are being used with increasing frequency in the treatment of functional gastrointestinal disorders including functional dyspepsia (FD) and constipation-predominant Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS-C). Mosapride is a gastro-prokinetic agent that acts as a selective 5-HT4 agonist thereby accelerating gastric emptying. It has been used for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), functional dyspepsia (FD), and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). Mosapride shares physiologic effects with previous 5-HT4 agonists, cisapride and tegaserod, but with a safer cardiac profile.
