Aluminium Hydroxide + Magnesium Hydroxide

Aluminium Hydroxide + Magnesium Hydroxide is a combination medication commonly known as antacid. This medication reacts and neutralizes the excess acid produced in the stomach.

Aluminum hydroxide gel is indicated for symptomatic relief of the following conditions-

  • Gastric acidity
  • Dyspepsia
  • Flatulence
  • Gastric ulcer

Aluminium Hydroxide + Magnesium Hydroxide is available as chewable tablets and suspension. The usual dosage is 500 mg per day in two doses 1-3 hours after meal. It is generally not recommended for children. 

Side effects of aluminum hydroxide include-

  • diarrhea
  • abdominal pain
  • constipation
  • taste disturbance (metallic taste, chalky taste)
  • milk-alkali syndrome
  • Large doses of this product may trigger or aggravate intestinal obstruction and ileus in patients at higher risk, such as those with renal impairment or the elderly. Aluminium hydroxide may cause constipation, and magnesium salts overdose may cause hypomotility of the bowel; large doses of this product may trigger or aggravate intestinal obstruction and ileus in patients at higher risk, such as those with renal impairment or the elderly.
  • Because aluminum hydroxide is poorly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, systemic effects in persons with normal renal function are uncommon. Excessive doses, long-term use, or even typical doses in individuals on low-phosphorus diets can cause phosphate depletion (due to aluminium-phosphate binding), accelerated bone resorption, hypercalciuria, and osteomalacia. Long-term use or people who are at danger of phosphate deficiency should seek medical guidance.
  • Aluminium and magnesium levels in the blood rise in people with renal impairment. Long-term exposure to large dosages of aluminum and magnesium salts may cause dementia and microcytic anemia in these patients. Patients with porphyria who are receiving hemodialysis may be at risk from aluminum hydroxide.
  • Sorbitol is present in this product (E420). This drug should not be used by patients who have a rare genetic fructose intolerance condition.
  • This pharmaceutical medication has a sodium content of less than 1 mmol (23 mg) per dose, making it essentially "sodium free."
