What is Acidex Advance Oral Suspension Peppermint
Acidex Advance Oral Suspension (referred to as ‘Acidex Advance’ throughout this leaflet) belongs to a group of medicines called “reflux suppressants”. Reflux is when the acid stomach contents flow back up the gullet (oesophagus) and this can cause pain and discomfort known as heartburn or acid indigestion.
This medicine contains the active ingredients sodium alginate and potassium hydrogen carbonate, which forms a protective layer at the top of your stomach to stop reflux from happening by keeping the stomach contents away from the food pipe lining to relieve the symptoms heartburn and acid indigestion. It can therefore be taken to prevent and relieve the symptoms of acid reflux, including during pregnancy and relieve the symptoms of conditions such as hiatus hernia (protrusion of muscle through a muscle wall), reflux oesophagitis (inflamed food pipe) and symptoms of hoarseness and other voice disorders, sore throat and cough associated with reflux.
It can also be taken to control heartburn symptoms that may occur when taking or following medication withdrawal to reduce stomach acids such as Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) or H2 Antagonists.
