Active ingredient:  sodium bicarbonate
Composition:  1 tablet contains: 1 g sodium bicarbonate.

Indication:  Traditionally used as a mild remedy for heartburn and acid-related stomach disorders.
Characteristics:  Alkala T is an alkaline remedy which is suitable to restore the organisms acid-base balance. Ideally, this ratio is balanced in a person. A shift of the acid-base balance to the acidic spectrum is becoming increasingly common, due to modern day living and environmental conditions. The typical first signs of an over-acidification of the gastro-intestinal tract are heartburn, acid reflux, bloating etc. In consequence, the over-acidification is a typical side-effect of the chronic metabolic disorder.
Application:  Take 1 tablet 3x daily with water. Generally, an interval of one tot wo hours should be observed between the administration of Alkala T and other medicaments.
Side effects:  Often there is a feeling of fullness and belching after taking Alkala T. Prolonged use can promote the formation of calcium and magnesium phosphate stones in the kidneys.
Contraindications:  Alkala T must not be taken in cases of known intolerance of one of the other constituents. In cases of disorders oft he acid-base balance (alkalosis), potassium deficiency or if on a sodium reduced diet, Alkala T must not be taken.
Due to the risk of a stomach rupture, Alkala T must not be taken in cases of acid burn to the stomach.
Interactions with other remedies:  The absorption and excretion of weak acids and bases can be influenced through the increasing pH value in the stomach and urine.
Functional interactions are possible with gluco- and mineralocorticoids, androgens and diuretics which increase the excretion of potassium.
Attention should be paid to a possible influence on the solubility of medicaments which are eliminated via the urine (e.g. Ciprofloxazin).
Precautions:  As with all medications and due to the variations of clinical studies, professional medical advice should be sought prior to recommending this product to women during pregnancy or breastfeeding, as well as with children.
Patients suffering from the rare hereditary galactose-intolerance, Lactase-deficiency or glucose-galactose malabsorption should not take Alkala T tablets.
Advice:  Contains lactose.
Incompatibilities:  Due to the high alkaline pH-value, Alkala T tablets are incompatible with most medicinal products. Especially the combination with solutions containing potassium, magnesium or phosphate can lead to precipitation.
