Diovol LA Forte Suspension Orange


Introduction

Diovol LA Forte Suspension Orange is a combination medicine used in the treatment of acidity, stomach ulcer and heartburn. It helps in relieving the symptoms of acidity and ulcers such as stomach pain or irritation. It also neutralizes excessive acid in the stomach and helps in easy passage of gas.

Diovol LA Forte Suspension Orange is taken without food in a dose and duration as advised by the doctor. The dose you are given will depend on your condition and how you respond to the medicine. You should keep taking this medicine for as long as your doctor recommends. If you stop treatment too early your symptoms may come back and your condition may worsen. Let your healthcare team know about all other medications you are taking as some may affect, or be affected by this medicine. Do not take it for more than the recommended duration as long-term administration may have harmful effects on the health.

The most common side effects are diarrhea, constipation, and allergic reaction. These are temporary and usually resolve with time. Contact your doctor straight away if you are at all concerned about any side effects. To overcome constipation, you should add fiber-rich foods in your diet and stay hydrated. Lifestyle modifications like having cold milk and avoiding hot tea, coffee, spicy food or chocolate can help you to get better results.

Before taking this medicine, you should tell your doctor if you are pregnant, planning pregnancy or breastfeeding. You should also tell your doctor if you have any liver diseases so that your doctor can prescribe a suitable dose for you.

Uses of Diovol LA Forte Suspension

Benefits of Diovol LA Forte Suspension

In Acidity

Diovol LA Forte Suspension Orange relieves excessive acidity in your stomach which prevents heartburn and indigestion. Usually, it is used along with other medicines for management of your condition.
Continue taking it for as long as the doctor may advise you to. You need to take this medicine regularly to get the most out of it. Take a fiber-rich diet, avoid oily or spicy food and drink plenty of fluids while taking it to make sure you stay hydrated.

In Heartburn

Heartburn is a burning feeling in your chest caused by stomach acids travelling back up towards your throat and mouth (acid reflux). Diovol LA Forte Suspension Orange improves the movement of food in the stomach and helps prevent heartburn.
You should take it exactly as it is prescribed or as it says on the label for it to be effective. Some simple lifestyle changes can help stop or reduce heartburn. Think about what foods trigger heartburn and try to avoid them; eat smaller, more frequent meals; try to lose weight if you are overweight and try to find ways to relax. Do not eat within 3 to 4 hours of going to bed.

In Stomach ulcers

Stomach ulcers are painful sores that develop in the inner lining of the stomach or gut (intestine). Diovol LA Forte Suspension Orange reduces the amount of acid your stomach makes which prevents further damage to the ulcer as it heals naturally. You may be given other medicines along with this medicine depending on what caused the ulcer. You need to keep taking Diovol LA Forte Suspension Orange as prescribed by the doctor for it to be effective, even if the symptoms seem to disappear.

How Diovol LA Forte Suspension works

Diovol LA Forte Suspension Orange is a combination of five medicines: Aluminium hydroxide, milk of magnesia, oxetacaine, simethicone and sorbitol. Aluminium hydroxide is an inorganic salt that neutralises the excess acid in stomach. Milk of magnesia and sorbitol are laxatives that work by drawing water into the intestine through osmosis, making the stools soft and easier to pass. Oxetacaine is a local anesthetic that provides faster relief from pain due to ulcers or acidic injury in the stomach. Simethicone is an antifoaming medicine which disintegrates gas bubbles and allows easy passage of gas.
