Introduction

Potassium Bicarbonate & Sodium Alginate belongs to a group of medicines called ‘Reflux Suppressants’. Reflux is the process in which the acid juices in the stomach flow back up into the food pipe causing the pain and discomfort commonly known as heartburn. Potassium Bicarbonate & Sodium Alginate works by forming a protective layer that floats on the top of the stomach contents, preventing reflux and keeping the stomach contents away from the lining of the food pipe.

Algicon Precaution

Should be prescribed with caution in patients with renal impairment and congestive cardiac failure.
