Indications for use:

Magnesium oxide is one of the main representatives of antacids used to reduce the high acidity of gastric juice.
When introduced into the stomach, magnesium oxide is not absorbed, it neutralizes the hydrochloric acid of the gastric contents with the formation of magnesium chloride. The release of carbon dioxide does not occur, therefore, the antacid (reducing the acidity of the stomach) effect of magnesium oxide is not accompanied by secondary hypersecretion. The phenomena of alkalosis (Scaling) are not observed. Passing into the intestines, magnesium chloride has a laxative effect.

Assign inside (0.25-0.5-1 g each) with increased acidity of gastric juice, acid poisoning and as a mild laxative (3-5 g per dose).
