Almacon is an antacid preparation which combines the most common mixture of gastric antacids with an antiflatulent..
Mg hydroxide neutralizes gastric acid promptly and almost completely and thus diminishes the destructive action of the acid
and abolishes the proteolytic activity of pepsin almost completely. As a result, the epigastric pain due to the attack at gastric
acid and pepsin is relieved. This effect is sustained by the slow-acting antacid Al hydroxide. In addition, the cathartic effect of
Mg hydroxide and the constipating effect of Al hydroxide can neutralized each other. Al hydroxide is also an effective
adsorbent and demulcent. Simethicone, an antifoaming agent, is a common ingredient in an antacid preparation. It is
included to defoam the gastric juice, in order to relieve functional gastric bloating and flatulence.
