DIJEX MP SUSP
- Medicine Overview
This medication is used to treat the symptoms of too much stomach acid such as stomach upset heartburn and acid indigestion. Aluminum and magnesium antacids work quickly to lower the acid in the stomach. Liquid antacids usually work faster/better than tablets or capsules.
This medication works only on existing acid in the stomach. It does not prevent acid production. It may be used alone or with other medications that lower acid production (e.g. H2 blockers such as cimetidine/ranitidine and proton pump inhibitors such as omeprazole).
This medication can cause nausea constipation diarrhea or headache. If these symptoms persist or become severe notify your doctor.
If your doctor has directed you to use this medication remember that he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.
