Magaldrate and Simethicone Suspension MANUFACTURERS SUPPLIERS - THIRD PARTY CONTRACT MANUFACTURING - PCD PHARMA FRANCHISE
Magaldrate and Simethicone Suspension come with the brand name”EASE GEL” and belongs to a group of medicines called antacids & anti-ulcerants used to treat acidity, bloating, indigestion, heartburn, and gas. The stomach is usually protected from the acid by a mucous layer. In some cases, due to excess acid production, the mucous layer gets eroded, which leads to complications like acidity and heartburn. Bloating occurs when the abdomen is filled with gas or air.
Magaldrate and Simethicone Suspension is a combination of two drugs: Magaldrate (antacid) and Simethicone (anti-flatulent). Magaldrate works by neutralising excess stomach acid. Simethicone works by decreasing the surface tension of gas bubbles, thereby facilitating the expulsion of gas through flatus or belching (burping). It also prevents the accumulation and formation of gas in the digestive tract.
