Antacid Side Effects and Risks

Aluminum compounds frequently cause constipation. Used continuously, they can cause mineral deficiencies, especially calcium.

Calcium Carbonate may seem like taking calcium is good. However, these can also cause constipation and even acid rebound. An additional risk is forming kidney stones and impaired kidney function. Overdose or taking too many at one time can cause heart arrhythmia, some times these can be life threatening.

Magnesium Compounds may cause a laxative effect unless mixed with any of the above. These are not recommended for the elderly with diabetes as high blood pressure and heart problems may arise. If you have kidney disease, you should not use these.

Sodium Bicarbonate: is only for short term use. Overuse can cause kidney and heart problems. Those on a sodium restricted diet should not use unless first asking their doctor or pharmacist.
