Introduction of product:
Heartburn, acid reflux, and indigestion are all symptoms that aluminum hydroxide eases. An antacid is made from aluminum hydroxide, an inorganic salt. The compound operates by neutralizing hydrochloric acid in the stomach.
How does it work:
An aluminum hydroxide is an inorganic salt used as an antacid. This basic compound makes gastric secretions less acidic by neutralizing hydrochloric acid. Increasing the pH may inhibit pepsin's action. A rise in bicarbonate ions and prostaglandins has also been shown to confer cytoprotective effects
Applications Or where it is used:
Peptic ulcer pain, sour stomach pain, and heartburn can be relieved by aluminum hydroxide. It can also be used to promote healing of peptic ulcers.
Aluminium hydroxide is almost exclusively made using the Bayer process, which consists of dissolving bauxite in sodium hydroxide at temperatures as high as 270 °C (518 °F). In order to produce aluminium hydroxide from sodium aluminate, the waste solid, bauxite tailings, is removed.
How to use:
Both aluminum oxide and magnesium oxide act as antacids, relieving heartburn, acid indigestion, and upset stomach. These medications may be used to treat symptoms associated with peptic ulcers, gastritis, esophagitis, hemiparesis, or too much acid in the stomach (gastric hyperacidity).
Dosage Considerations – Should be Given as Follows:
• 5-30 mL orally between meals and at bedtime or as suggested
Peptic Ulcer Disease
• 5-30 mL between meals and at bedtime or as suggested
• Adult: 300-600 mg orally 3 times/day between meals and at bedtime
• Pediatric: 50-150 mg/kg/day orally divided every 4 to 6 hours; titrate dose to keep phosphorus within normal range
Some of the common side effects or health problems are:
- Low blood phosphates (hypophosphatemia)
- Milk-alkali syndrome
- Rebound hyperacidity
- Softening of the bones
- Chalky taste
- Constipation (this could lead to hemorrhoids or bowel obstruction)
- Fecal impaction
- Stomach cramps
Some serious side effects of aluminum hydroxide are as follows:
- Black/tarry stools
- Stomach/abdominal pain
- Mental/mood changes
- Pain with urination
The information in this document does not cover all the possible side effects. Further information regarding side effects can be obtained from your physician.
1) Aluminum hydroxide is present in this medication. You should not take AlternaGEL, Amphojel, or Nephrox if you are allergic to aluminum hydroxide.
2) Children should not have access to this product. If you overdose, contact Poison Control or go to the nearest hospital.
Contraindications: Hypersensitivity to aluminum salts
1) Renal failure patients may develop aluminum toxicity.
2) Hyperphosphatemia (low blood phosphate level) is possible.
3) Caution should be used in patients with heart failure, cirrhosis, edema, or kidney failure.
4) Binds calcium when given together.
5) Those who are elderly are at risk of fecal impaction.
6) Patients who have recently suffered massive gastrointestinal hemorrhages should be treated with caution.
Pregnancy and Lactation:
In pregnancy, aluminum hydroxide should only be used if benefits outweigh risks. Research on animals indicates a risk, but studies on humans are lacking or have not been conducted.
