What are major Antacids and Antiulcer Drugs

  1. Antacids (usually containing aluminium or magnesium compounds) can often relieve symptoms in ulcer dyspepsia and in non-erosive gastro-oesophageal reflex; they are also sometimes used in non-ulcer dyspepsia but the evidence of benefit is uncertain.
  2. Antacids are best given when symptoms occur or are expected, usually between meals and at bedtime, Liquid preparations are more effective than solids.
  3. Aluminium-and magnesium-containing antacids (for example Aluminium Hydroxide and Magnesium Hydroxide), being relatively insoluble in water, are long-acting if retained in the stomach. They are suitable antacids for most purposes.
  4. Magnesium-containing antacids have a laxative effect whereas aluminium-containing antacids may be constipating.
  5. Some most used Anta acids are as mentioned below:
    Aluminium Hydroxide, Ranitidine, Magnesium Hydroxide, Omeprazole, Pantoprazole.
