Introduction

Nodosis Tablet is a prescription medicine used in the treatment of Indigestion. It is an antacid which is used to relieve acid indigestion, heartburn, and gas.

Nodosis Tablet helps to neutralize the acid present in the stomach by producing carbon dioxide which results in a reduction of irritation in the stomach and intestine. It also increases the pH of blood and urine, thereby correcting acid indigestion, heartburn, and helps in the removal of toxic substances from the body in certain types of poisoning.

Nodosis Tablet may be taken with or without food in a dose and duration as advised by the doctor. Excess intake of this medicine can disturb the fine balance of electrolytes and can cause unwanted side effects such as stomach cramp and flatulence. 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 doctor know about all other medications you are taking as some may affect, or be affected by this medicine.

It is important to consult a doctor before taking this medicine if you are suffering from severe stomach and kidney disease. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should also consult their doctor before taking this medicine. It is an effective medicine with very little side effects like dry mouth and increased thirst.

Benefits of Nodosis Tablet

In Indigestion

Indigestion is a feeling of discomfort or a burning sensation in the upper part of your stomach. It also causes stomach pain and a feeling of fullness. Nodosis Tablet treats indigestion and thus gives relief from its symptoms by reducing the amount of acid in the stomach. Nodosis Tablet also gives relief from excess gas by breaking trapped gas and allows its easy passage. Take Nodosis Tablet as prescribed by the doctor. Think about what foods trigger indigestion 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. Avoid eating within 3-4 hours of going to bed.
