Each 5mL of NEVIGEL suspension contains magaldrate 400mg and simethicone 20mg.
NEVIGEL suspension is an effective antacid that eases too much gas in the stomach. It is also used to treat heartburn and upset stomach. This oral suspension is used to treat acid indigestion, heartburn, gas and dyspepsia.
This combination works by neutralizing the pH of gastric acid in the stomach and suppressing the symptoms of acid-reflux related issues. The anti-foaming agent, simethicone works by breaking up the gas bubbles, and combining them into large gas bubbles and eases their elimination. Simethicone does not suppress the formation of gas; instead, it increases the rate at which the gas is eliminated. This combination relieves the pain that is caused due to gas formation in the stomach.
Magaldrate, post administration, breaks down into magnesium hydroxide and aluminium hydroxide and provide a sustained antacid effect, which is important for the treatment for heartburn and other reflux disorders.
2-4 teaspoonfuls of NEVIGEL suspension, 20-60 minutes after the meal or as directed by the physician.
