Active ingredient
Algeldrate+Magnesium Hydroxide
Composition

Active substances: algeldrate (aluminum hydroxide gel) 2.18 g, which corresponds to the content of aluminum oxide 218 mg; magnesium hydroxide paste 350 mg; which corresponds to a magnesium oxide content of 75 mg.

Excipients: sorbitol - 801.15 mg, hyetellose - 10.9 mg, methyl parahydroxybenzoate - 10.9 mg, propyl parahydroxybenzoate - 1.363 mg, butyl parahydroxybenzoate - 1.363 mg, sodium saccharinate dihydrate - 818 μg, lemon oil - 1.635 mg, ethanol 96% - 98.1 mg, purified water - up to 5 ml.

Pharmacological properties

Antacid preparation, which is a balanced combination of algeldrate (aluminum hydroxide) and magnesium hydroxide. Neutralizes free hydrochloric acid in the stomach, reduces the activity of pepsin, which leads to a decrease in digesting activity of gastric juice.

It has an enveloping, adsorbent effect. Protects the gastric mucosa by stimulating the synthesis of prostaglandins (cytoprotective effect). Protects the mucous membrane from inflammatory and erosive-hemorrhagic lesions as a result of the use of irritating and ulcerogenic agents, such as ethanol, NSAIDs (for example, indomethacin, diclofenac, acetylsalicylic acid), corticosteroids.

The therapeutic effect after taking the drug occurs after 3-5 minutes The duration of action depends on the rate of emptying of the stomach. When taken on an empty stomach, the action lasts up to 60 min. When taken an hour after eating, the antacid effect can last up to 3 h. Does not cause secondary hypersecretion of gastric juice.

Pharmacokinetics

Algeldrat

A small amount of the drug is absorbed, which practically does not change the concentration of aluminum salts in the blood. It is excreted through the intestines.

Magnesium hydroxide

Magnesium ions are absorbed in small quantities (about 10% of the dose taken) and do not change the concentration of magnesium in the blood. It is usually distributed locally. Magnesium hydroxide is excreted through the intestines.

Indications for use
  • Acute gastritis; chronic gastritis with increased and normal secretory function of the stomach (in the acute phase); acute duodenitis, enteritis, colitis;
