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

Carbonate (light) 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



Shake the bottle well before use.

Adults: 2 - 4 teaspoonfuls (10-20 ml)

Children: 1 teaspoonful (5 m
l); or as directed by physician

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
