One sachet (sachet) 16 g contains
- active ingredient – aluminum phosphate gel 20% – 10.40 g (corresponds to 2.08 g of aluminum phosphate),
- excipients: calcium sulfate dihydrate, pectin, agar-agar 800, orange flavor, potassium sorbate, sorbitol solution 70%, purified water
The drug is practically not absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. The absorption of aluminum phosphate is about 0.087%. Absorbed aluminum is completely excreted from the body by the kidneys. Does not bind to food phosphates.
It has an acid-neutralizing, enveloping, adsorbing effect. Reduces the proteolytic activity of pepsin. Does not cause alkalization of gastric juice, keeping the acidity of gastric contents at the physiological level. Does not lead to secondary hypersecretion of hydrochloric acid. Forms a protective layer on the mucous membrane of the gastrointestinal tract. Promotes the removal of toxins, gases and microorganisms throughout the digestive tract, normalizes the passage of contents through the intestines.
Indications for use

– diaphragmatic hernia
– reflux esophagitis
– non-ulcer dyspepsia syndrome
– functional diarrhea
– gastric and intestinal disorders caused by intoxication, taking medications, irritating substances (acids, alkalis), alcohol
– for preventive purposes to reduce the absorption of radioactive elements
Dosage and administration

Gastroesophageal reflux, diaphragmatic hernia – immediately after meals and at night.
Peptic ulcer of the stomach and duodenum – 1-2 hours after eating and immediately if pain occurs.

With constipation, which occasionally occurs when taking Phosphalugel, it is recommended to increase the amount of daily water consumed.
The drug can be used by patients suffering from diabetes mellitus.
The drug can be used prophylactically to reduce the absorption of radioactive elements.
The use of the drug Phosphalugel does not affect the results of the X-ray study.
