Itopride - Itopride increases acetylcholine concentrations by inhibiting dopamine D2 receptors and acetylcholinesterase. Cinitapride acts as an agonist at 5HT4 serotonergic receptor and as an antagonist at 5HT2 serotonergic and D2 dopaminergic receptor. It is a potent inducer of GI peristalsis by way of its synergistic action at the level of myenteric plexus. Itopride safety is well established over many years, it is safe, effective and has minimal drug interactions, it do not cross blood brain barrier and do not cause parkinsonism Cinitapride has multiple drug interactions, It crosses blood brain barrier and can cause parkinsonism For all above reasons - Itopride is preferred over cinitapride

If you mean Itopride & Cisapride...( Cintapride is not known to me) Itopride belongs to the same benzamide group as cisapride, a drug found to affect QT interval and possibly predispose those using it to cardiac arrhythmias. However, itopride does not have any adverse effect on the QT interval.
