Each 10 ml dose has a sodium content of 106 mg (4.6 mmol) and a potassium content of 78 mg (2.0 mmol). This should be taken into account when a highly restricted salt diet is recommended, e.g. in some cases of congestive cardiac failure and renal impairment or when taking drugs which can increase plasma potassium levels.
Each 10 ml contains 200 mg (2.0 mmol) of calcium. Care needs to be taken in treating patients with hypercalcaemia, nephrocalcinosis and recurrent calcium containing renal calculi.
There is a possibility of reduced efficacy in patients with very low levels of gastric acid.
Treatment of children younger than 12 years of age is not generally recommended, except on medical advice.
If symptoms do not improve after seven days, the clinical situation should be reviewed.
