HARCID MPS is a drug with soft and prolonged antacid action. It is a balanced gel containing aluminium and magnesium hydroxide in combination with the ant flatulent agent simethicone. Its action is determined by antacid, adsorption, detergent and citoprotective properties of the active substances including in its composition. HARCID MPS has a rapid effect, neutralizes the increased hydrochloric acid and pepsin secretion in the stomach, and helps the recovery process by its favourable effect on the protective mechanism of gastro-duodenal mucosa.
Aluminium ion, containing in the preparation increases the tonus of the lower oesophageal sphincter, adsorbs pepsin, bile acids and lysolecitine. This explains its effectiveness in the treatment and prophylaxis of the reflux pathology. The alkaline components in the preparation are finely dispersed, which increases their active surface, a better contact with gastric and duodenal mucosa is 2 realized, the evacuation of the stomach content is retarded, which prolongs the neutralisation effect. The included in its composition simethicone provokes a narrow release and resorption of gas through the intestine walls. It is eliminated from the organism unchanged.
Gastrointestinal disorders, manifested with hyper- or normoacidity and increased gas production in the intestines. May be administered as monotherapy or in combination for the treatment of:
The pharmaceutical rapidly relieves pain, acidity, heartburn, heaviness and tension, provoked by the decreased gas production in intestines.
