Two items can be found in the rennie, peppermint and spearmint. They are heavy magnesium carbonate and calcium carbonate. They can also be called antacids. Indigestion occurs when there is more stomach acid then needed, while heartburn occurs when this acid reaches food pipe, inducing pain. When this problem occurs, those two antacids come into the play. They can treat these problems. Usually they can remove the effects of indigestion, heartburn, gas and acid excess in the stomach as well as the effects of upset stomach. But remember that doctor should be visited if the symptoms persist. Do not consume more than advised. Doctor will have to verify that you can use this medication.
If you are middle aged, have swallowing problems, stomach pain which does not go away, weight loss, use painkillers, Aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications, or certain other medications, consult your doctor weather or not you can use this medication. Children younger than six cannot use this medication, along with people with some problems of the kidneys. Women who are having a child do not have to worry when taking this medication is concerned. There are many possibly dangerous and harmful medications for the pregnant women but rennie peppermint and spearmint are not harmful.
There are many possible side effects when using medications in general. The severity and the type depend on the patient. Some of the most common side effects are increased levels of calcium in the blood, elevated production of stomach acid and constipation. When you buy some medication, we strongly advise that you read the label. There you can find much helpful information. These are the most common side effects connected with the use of rennie peppermint and spearmint, but the label may contain some more.
Now we will move to the subject of taking other medication at the same time as antacids. There are several possible side effects in such cases. The first one is the reduction of the effect of the other medication. When a person uses rennie spearmint or peppermint, they can affect the gut in a way that the absorption of the medicines is impaired, and because of this, other medications will have low effect on the human body. But there is a way this can be avoided. Just take antacids before the other medications. We strongly advise two-hour gap between the medications. Be very careful when iron preparations, Ciprofloxacin and tetracycline antibiotics (such as minocycline, doxycycline and tetracycline) are used. At the end, let us just say that these antacids are not very safe to use, and the side effect are very rare and mild.
