4. Clinical Particulars 4.1 Therapeutic Indications

Acidex Compound Alginate Oral Suspension Heartburn and Indigestion Liquid alleviates the painful conditions resulting from the reflux of gastric acid and bile into the oesophagus by suppressing the reflux itself. It is indicated in heartburn, including heartburn of pregnancy, dyspepsia associated with gastric reflux, hiatus hernia, reflux oesophagitis, regurgitation and all cases of epigastric and retrosternal distress where the underlying cause is gastric reflux.

4.2 Posology And Method Of Administration

For oral use

Adults and children over 12 years: Two to four 5 ml spoonfuls. Children 6 - 12 years: One to two 5 ml spoonfuls

Not recommended in children under six years of age.

Doses should be taken after meals and at bedtime.

4.3 Contraindications

There are no specific contraindications.

4.4 Special Warnings And Precautions For Use

1. Each 10 ml dose of Acidex Compound Alginate Oral Suspension Heartburn and Indigestion Liquid contains about 6 mmoles of sodium and therefore care should be exercised in patients on a sodium restricted diet.

2. Acidex Compound Alginate Oral Suspension Heartburn and Indigestion Liquid should not be taken within 1 to 2 hours of taking other medicines by mouth, or for more than 2 weeks if symptoms persist.

3. Acidex Compound Alginate Oral Suspension Heartburn and Indigestion Liquid should not be used by patients allergic to any of its constituents.

4. Parahydroxybenzoates (E214 and E216): may cause allergic reactions (possibly delayed).

4.5 Interaction With Other Medicinal Products And Other Forms Of Interaction

1. Antacids may interact with other drugs as they alter the gastric pH which may affect dissolution, solubility or ionization of the other drug. Antacids reduce the absorption of certain drugs from the following groups: ACE Inhibitors, Analgesics, Antibacterials, Antiepileptics, Antifungals, Antimalarials, Antipsychotics, Bisphosphonates, Penicillamine.

2. Antacids may increase the pH of the urine and affect the rate of drug elimination. Excretion of basic drugs is decreased whereas acidic drugs are eliminated more rapidly.

3. Due to effects at the renal level sodium bicarbonate may reduce plasma lithium levels and increase plasma quinidine levels.

4.6 Pregnancy And Lactation

Acidex Compound Alginate Oral Suspension Heartburn and Indigestion Liquid is indicated for heartburn of pregnancy and may be used during lactation.

For Acidex Compound Alginate Oral Suspension Heartburn and Indigestion Liquid no clinical data on exposed pregnancies are available. Animal studies do not indicate direct or indirect harmful effects with respect to pregnancy, embryonal/foetal development, parturition or postnatal development. To date, no other relevant epidemiological data are available.

Caution should be exercised when prescribing to pregnant women.

4.7 Effects On Ability To Drive And Use Machines

There are no effects on ability to drive or operate machinery.

4.8 Undesirable Effects

Constipation, flatulence, stomach cramps or belching may occasionally occur.

4.9 Overdose

As Acidex Compound Alginate Oral Suspension Heartburn and Indigestion Liquid's mode of action is physical, overdosage in terms of the alginate content is virtually no hazard. The only consequence is abdominal distension which is best treated conservatively. The relatively low concentrations of sodium and calcium carbonate in Acidex Compound Alginate Oral Suspension Heartburn and Indigestion Liquid would also make serious consequences from overdosage very unlikely.

5. Pharmacological Properties 5.1 Pharmacodynamic Properties

When taken after a meal Sodium Alginate forms a rigid raft of alginic acid in the stomach reducing gastric reflux. This raft formed is maintained in the stomach for two hours. Sodium bicarbonate reacts with gastric acid to produce carbon dioxide which is retained in the gel and allows the raft to rise to the surface of the gastric contents. Calcium ions from calcium carbonate link the alginic acid molecules and strengthen the raft.

5.2 Pharmacokinetic Properties

Alginic acid is not absorbed into the systemic circulation.

5.3 Preclinical Safety Data

There is no Preclinical Safety Data.

Proton pump inhibitors


A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.

Proton pump inhibitors act by irreversible inhibition of the H+/K+ ATPase, in the parietal cells of the stomach. It markedly inhibits gastric acid secretion and has a long duration of action. They are used for treatment of gastric and duodenal ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease and other excessive gastrointestinal acid secretory disorders.

Boots Clotrimazole 500mg Vaginal Tablet


Boots Clotrimazole 500 mg Vaginal Tablet

Read all of this leaflet carefully because it contains important information for you.

This medicine is available without prescription to treat thrush. However, you still need to use it carefully to get the best results from it.

Keep this leaflet, you may need to read it again Ask your pharmacist if you need more information or advice You must contact a pharmacist or doctor if your symptoms worsen or do not go away after 3 days What this medicine is for

This medicine contains Clotrimazole which belongs to a group of medicines called antifungals, which act to treat infections caused by fungi. It can be used to treat thrush (vaginal candidiasis). Thrush is a common infection caused by a yeast (or fungus), which may live harmlessly in the vagina without you even noticing it. However, in certain circumstances, it may develop into an infection in the vagina and symptoms may spread to the surrounding area. These symptoms may include one or more of the following:

Itching of the vagina and surrounding area (the vulva) Redness and swelling of the tissues of the vagina and vulva Soreness of the vagina and vulva A white non-smelling discharge from the vagina

Thrush may be aggravated by sexual intercourse, but it is not a sexually transmitted disease. Sometimes however, thrush can be passed to your partner through sexual intercourse.

If your partner has penile thrush he may have one or more of the following symptoms:

Soreness and redness of the penis Tightness of the foreskin An abnormal penile discharge Before you use this medicine

This medicine can be used by women between the ages of 16 and 60 years. However, some people should not use this medicine or should seek the advice of their pharmacist or doctor first.

Do not use: If you are allergic to any of the ingredients If you are pregnant, unless your doctor tells you to – if your doctor tells you to use the pessary do not use the applicator to insert it Talk to your pharmacist or doctor: If this is the first time you have had these symptoms If you are under 16 years, or 61 years or older If you have had thrush more than twice in the last 6 months If you or your partner have been exposed to a sexually transmitted disease If you have lower stomach pain, or pain or a burning sensation on passing urine If you have abnormal or irregular vaginal bleeding, or a blood-stained discharge If you have sores, ulcers or blisters on your vulva or vagina Other important information

The ingredients in the pessary may affect the latex used in contraceptives such as condoms and diaphragms. This may reduce the effectiveness of the contraceptives. You should therefore use other methods of contraception for at least 5 days after using the pessary.

You can help the treatment to work if you follow these simple self-help tips:

Although the infected area will itch, do not scratch as this will damage the surface of the skin and cause the infection to spread further Keep the affected areas of skin clean Pay particular attention to drying the skin but avoid excessive rubbing

To help prevent thrush from coming back once you have treated it, follow these simple steps:

Wash daily Wear cotton underwear and loose fitting clothing Try to avoid wearing tights, nylon underwear and tight fitting clothing After going to the toilet, wipe yourself from the front to the back, as a thrush infection may be transferred from the bowel Try to avoid washing with perfumed soaps or using vaginal deodorants Do not rub hard with sponges or flannels and avoid hot baths with strong perfumed oils Change your sanitary protection regularly If you take other medicines

Before you use this medicine, make sure that you tell your pharmacist about ANY other medicines you might be using at the same time. If you are unsure about interactions with any other medicines, talk to your pharmacist. This includes medicines prescribed by your doctor and medicine you have bought for yourself, including herbal and homeopathic remedies.

How to use this medicine

Directions for inserting the pessary Remove the applicator from the packaging Pull out the plunger until it stops Remove the pessary from the blister pack and place the pessary firmly into the applicator To fit the pessary into the applicator, squeeze the applicator lightly on either side. The pessary fits tightly into the applicator and needs to be pushed into the holder about 1 cm Carefully put the applicator as deep as is comfortable into the vagina (this is easiest when laying on your back with your knees bent up) Holding the applicator in place, slowly press the plunger until it stops so that the pessary is deposited into the vagina. Remove the applicator Dispose of the applicator in a safe place, out of the reach of children The applicator cannot be flushed down the toilet Wash your hands thoroughly after use
