Customer Question
Hi Pearl, my 3years...

Hi Pearl, my 3years old son ate some antacid tablets thinking they were sweets. I don't know how many he ate but it's probably 4

Doctor's Assistant: When did your son start using antacid? How severe were any side effects?

He found them in my car 1st Aid box this afternoon

Doctor's Assistant: What's the dosage of antacid he's using? Any allergies to medications or other substances?

No he has no allergies or nothing we have notice within his 3yrs. He is just having difficulty sleeping because he is experiencing stomach upset I guess

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in his medical history you think the doctor should know?

There's no dosage on the tablets

Hi... I understand your concern. But at the same time I want to reassure you also that nothing is going to happen. Please be rest assured.The usual antacid which is available worldwide is not going to harm your child at the dose of 4 tablets.The antacids which are aluminium based might cause constipation and if it is magnesium base and salt it may cause some diarrhoea.But whatever it is, either of the preparations will not cause any harmful effects the dose of 4 tablets please.Please be rest assured.Mild tummy discomfort he is having might or might not be related to this."
