Pharmacological effect Almagel A:

An antacid preparation, which is a balanced combination of algetrata (hydroxide aluminium) and hydroxide magnesium. Neutralizes free hydrochloric acid in the stomach, reduces pepsin activity, which leads to a reduction in digestion activity of gastric juice.

It has an enveloping, adsorbing effect. Protects the stomach lining by stimulating prostaglandin synthesis (cytoprotective action). It protects the mucous membrane from inflammatory and erosive-hemorrhagic lesions as a result of the use of irritating and ulcerogenic agents such as ethanol, NSAIDs (e.g. indometacin, diclofenac, acetylsalicylic acid), corticosteroids.

The therapeutic effect after taking the drug Almagel A occurs in three to five minutes. The duration of action depends on the rate of emptying the stomach. When ingested, the action lasts up to sixty minutes. When taken an hour after eating, the antacid action can last up to three hours. It does not cause secondary gastric acid hypersecretion.
