Titralac - Used for: Treating acid indigestion, heartburn, and sour stomach. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.
Titralac is an antacid. It works by neutralizing acid in the stomach.
Calcium is a mineral that is found naturally in foods. Calcium is necessary for many normal functions of the body, especially bone formation and maintenance. Calcium can also bind to other minerals (such as phosphate) and aid in their removal from the body.
Titralac is used to prevent and to treat calcium deficiencies.
Titralac may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
Indications: calcium supplement, hyperphosphataemia
Indications: gastric hyperacidity, peptic ulcer, heartburn, dyspepsia
this antacid is useful for the temporary relief of occasional indigestion and heartburn. Frequent, daily or nightly symptoms usually mean a more serious problem. Antacids by themselves do not correct these problems. The medications that are now available to treat acid problems are generally superior to antacids. The second and more important use of Titralac is as a source of calcium, necessary for bones and teeth and to prevent osteoporosis. A quart of milk contains about 1500 mg of calcium which is about what you need. Otherwise this or a similar calcium preparation can be taken (see osteoporosis diet).
