Actal tablets are used to help sooth the pains and discomfort of indigestion. They are available in packs and they begin to act as soon as the patient puts them on their tongue. These are liquid indigestion tablets and because they are liquid capsules, the active ingredient can release quickly to help relieve your symptoms in as short a time as possible. The tablets work by neutralizing the acid in your stomach.
Stomach acid is supposed to be there, but if you have too much acid sitting in your stomach, it can cause a painful burning sensation, and sometimes, it can rise up your esophagus causing the symptom known as heartburn. As well as neutralizing the acid, the Actal tablets line the stomach with an alkaline coating which protects your stomach from experiencing further pain whilst the acid is returning to an acceptable level.
You should be careful of taking Actal tablets alongside other medications. These tablets can counteract the effects of other medications and so you need to check with your doctor if you are taking other medications to see if it is okay for you to take Actal tablets. If you take too many of the Actal tablets, they can cause constipation, although this is the only unfavorable side effect of taking Actal tablets. You should avoid taking these tablets however if you feel bloated, or have any kidney problems. The Actal tablets should not be given to children who are under the age of 12.
You should take up to two tablets at a time. They should be allowed to dissolve on the tongue before you swallow them and you can take up to 16 of the Actal tablets each day. Keep them in a cool and dry place and away from children. You should see a doctor if your indigestion problems persist.
