Dhalumag

 

COMPOSITION
Each 5ml contains:
Magnesium Trisilicate BP .............................500mg
Dried Aluminium Hydroxide Gel BP .............250mg

PHARMACOLOGY
(1) Aluminium hydroxide neutralises gastric acid by reacting with intestinal secretion to form insoluble salts. By increasing the gastric pH, it also inactivates pepsin.
(2) Magnesium trisilicate reacts slowly with HCI to form magnesium chloride which is available for reabsorption in the intestine when the pH is on the alkaline side.

INDICATIONS
For the symptomatic relief of hyperacidity and peptic ulcer conditions.

DOSAGE
5-15 ml repeated in accordance with the patient's need.

PRECAUTIONS
This preparation will alter the absorption of other drugs, eg. Tetracycline, vitamins, anticholinergic agents, barbiturates, digoxin, quinine, quinindine. At a high dosage, magnesium may cause CNS depression if elevated serum magnesium occurs. Prolonged administration of aluminium hydroxide in phosphorous deficient diets may cause osteomalacia.

CONTRAINDICATIONS
This preparation should only be given with caution in renal insufficiency patients.

SIDE EFFECTS
Aluminium hydroxide may cause constipation. However, this problem can be prevented by the presence of magnesium trisilicate.

TOXICITY
Dhalumag is well tolerated.

STORAGE
Store below 30C, shake well before use.
