Generic Name: Aluminium hydroxide
Product Name: Alu Tab
Alu Tab is used for the relief of symptoms of peptic ulcer disease and the condition of having too much acid in the stomach. It can also have a role in patients who have kidney disease.
Alu Tab is an antacid, so it neutralises the acid found in the stomach to relieve the symptoms of peptic ulcer disease. The aluminium component also forms compounds with phosphate in the large bowel which helps the body excrete excess phosphate (which may be needed in kidney disease)
