Peptac Aniseed Liquid contains 3 active ingredients that work together to relieve the symptoms of gastro-oesophageal reflux. This occurs when stomach acid flows into the food pipe, which can be caused by many different factors and the most common is just after eating. Reflux symptoms can include painful heartburn, indigestion or acid regurgitation.
The active ingredients include sodium alginate, sodium bicarbonate and calcium carbonate and they work together by preventing the acid from flowing back into the foo pipe, but they are not absorbed into the bloodstream. Their effects last for about 3-4 hours on top of the stomach contents and are then broken down in the digestive system.
Peptac Aniseed Liquid - Antacids reduce the absorption of a number of drugs e.g. ciprofloxacin, some tetracyclines. The administration times should be separated by 1 to 2 hours to minimise the effect. Similarly, the administration times of an antacid and enteric coated tablets should be separated so that that the pH-sensitive coating is not destroyed in the stomach. This medicine is not to be used for long periods of time, as it may cause more adverse effects.
This medicine contains sodium, and may not suitable for those individuals on a sodium restricted diet.
Antacids may reduce the absorption of the following medications:
-ACE inhibitors (captopril and fosinopril)
-Analgesics such a high doses of aspirin
-Antibacerials such as the quinolones (eg. ciprofloxacin), the tetracyclines (eg. doxycycline), isoniazid, rifampicin, azithromycin, and nitrofurantoin
-Antiepileptics such as phenytoin
-Antimalarials such as chloroquine and proguanil
-Antifungals such as ketoconazole and itraconazole
-Antipsychotics such as the phenothiazines (eg. chlorpromazine)
-Biphosphonates such as alendronate
To reduce this effect there should be a two hour gap between taking the antacid and other medications.
