Can Consumption Of Amlodipine And Antacids Be Concurrent?
Sorry..you are asking me to take Amlodipine + betahistine … can you take antacid medicine?
Hello Muhtar XChange,
Doen antacids are drugs that are used to neutralize stomach acid used in patients with symptoms of dyspepsia (heartburn, often belching, flatulence). Some types of antacid content such as aluminum hydroxide, magnesium hydroxide, calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate.
Antacids are available in chewable tablets, suspension syrups, or water-soluble tablets. Antacids are consumed before or immediately after eating. The dose of antacids that need to be taken is adjusted to the patient's condition. Some types of antacids contain high sodium so it needs to be consulted in advance with a doctor if you want to be consumed by patients with hypertension, heart failure, who are on a low salt diet. Patients with kidney failure can also experience aluminum toxicity due to the body's excretion (disposal) function which is not good, so it is necessary to adjust the dose of the drug.
Antacids may cause side effects. Possible side effects from the use of antacids are constipation or allergic reactions. Excessive consumption of antacids can cause side effects such as nausea, vomiting, alkalosis, an increased risk of kidney stone formation.
Antacids can cause interactions when consumed with certain types of drugs, for example, interfere with absorption of antibiotics (tetracycline, penicillin), digoxin, indometacin, naproxen, quinidin; increase absorption of vitamin C. Antacids do not cause interactions with amlodipine and betahistine. However give a time lag of consumption of these drugs, so that if an allergic reaction occurs can be suspected which drug causes. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
