Lesuride: Is an antipsychotic drug used for schizophrenia and depression in Europe and Japan. It has not been approved for use in the US, Canada, or Australia. It has a prokinetic effect, making food pass through the stomach faster. This can be good for reflux but should not affect angina. Rarely, there are potential fatal side effects from heart arrhythmias. It should not be used without doctor supervision
