Magnesium Trisilicate Mixture
Magnesium Trisilicate Mixture acts as an antacid and provides symptomatic relief on dyspepsia, peptic ulceration, gastritis,
oesophageal reflux and heartburn, flatulence, hyperacidity. It reacts with gastric contents to form a gelatinous silicon dioxide
(which is said to protect ulcerated mucosal surfaces and promotes healing) (Goodman & Gilman, 7th Edition). Magnesium
appears to be an excellent antacid under
clinical conditions. It converts into Magnesium
Chloride and Carbon Dioxide in the stomach. Sodium Bicarbonate is highly soluble and exerts an immediate and rapid antacid
action in the stomach with the liberation of Carbon Dioxide. It is of short duration of action as any excess rapidly enters the
intestine. (Goodman & Gilman 7th Edition).
Each 5 ml of Magnesium Trisilicate Mixture contains:
Magnesium Carbonate (Light) 250 mg
Magnesium Trisilicate 250 mg
Sodium Bicarbontate 250 mg
For symptomatic relief of dyspepsia, peptic ulceration, gastritis, oesophageal Reflux and heartburn, flatulence and hyperacidity
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Shake the bottle well before use.
Adults: 2 - 4 teaspoonfuls (10-20 ml)
dose, doctor should be consulted.
Sodium Bicarbonate in moderate amounts can result in systemic volume expansion with resulting increase in blood pressure.
Hence, this is hazardous for patients with renal insufficiency, incipient or active hypertension and cardiac failure.
Diarrhoea may be resulted with excessive use
30, 60, 120, 180, 240, 480 ml and 3.6 L per bottle.
