Is This Dexanta Medicine For Stomach Acid?
Why am I taking my dexanta medicine? I have a headache. While I have Lambungg acid disease
Dexanta is a class of antacids containing aluminum hydroxide, magnesium hydroxide, and simethicon. This drug is useful to neutralize excessive stomach acid, so it is widely used for dyspepsia, relieving symptoms of heartburn (burning sensation in the pit of the stomach), gastric hyperacidity, which is associated with gastric diseases (gastritis, peptic ulcers, etc.) or other digestive tract diseases.
There are dexanta preparations in the form of suspension syrup and also chewable tablets (tablets chewed until smooth, then swallowed with the help of water). Side effects that can arise when using dexanta are:
BAB is softer or more fluid
If you use antacids that contain calcium carbonate and sodium carbonate in high doses, milk-alkali syndrome can occur which is characterized by symptoms of nausea, dizziness, weakness, until the temporary decline in kidney function.
Dizziness or headache is a symptom that often accompanies complaints of patients who experience gastric disease. Generally, these dizziness symptoms will subside if the symptoms of heartburn that you feel are also reduced. Dizziness that is severe that appears without precipitated / preceded by complaints in the stomach, may not be related to gastric disorders that you experience. Feeling dizzy (lightheadedness) or headaches can arise due to other conditions such as anemia, hypotension, infectious diseases, vertigo, migraine, tension type headache, and so forth.
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
