Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Response rate of overall symptom improvement after 4-weeks treatment [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage change of overall symptom score of functional dyspepsia from baseline after 2 and 4 weeks treatment [ Time Frame: 2 and 4 weeks ]
  • Response rate after 2 weeks treatment [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
  • Percentage change of individual symptom score (early satiety, discomfort with fullness after meal, flatulence, epigastric pain, epigastric burning, nausea, vomiting and belching) after 2 and 4 weeks treatment compared with the baseline [ Time Frame: 2 and 4 weeks ]
  • Changes of gastric emptying in some patients after 4-week treatment [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
  • Patient's global subjective assessment (Likert scale score) after 2 and 4 weeks treatment [ Time Frame: 2 and 4 weeks ]
