  ►  Mechanism of Action :   Antacids are basic compounds that neutralise hydrochloric acid in the gastric secretions. Antacids do not reduce the volume of hydrochloric acid secreted and elevation of the gastric pH may actually promote an increase in acid secretion. Aluminium salts tend to produce constipation and to delay gastric emptying, while magnesium salts have the reverse effect; a combination of the two may reduce adverse gastrointestinal effects.
