Avosoda Urinary Alkalinizer Sachet 4gx12's

Avosoda helps to neutralise the acid in urinary tract to assist in eliminating bacteria. Sodium bicarbonate acts as urinary alkalinizer by excretion of free bicarbonate ions in the urine, thus effectively raising the urinary pH. By maintaining alkaline urine, the actual dissolution of uric acid stones may be accomplished.

Indication: 

  • Urinary alkalinization where indicated in the treatment of mild urinary tract infections.
  • Symptomatic relief of dysuria.
  • In gout, especially treated with uricosurics and possibly allopurinol.
  • Symptomatic treatment of gastric hyperacidity.

Dosage and Directions For Use: 
Adult - 1-2 sachets (4g-8g) in a glass containing 200mL of water, 2-3 times daily. Drink after the effervescence has settled down to avoid eructation. 

Cautions:

  • Should not be taken by patients on a sodium-restricted diet.
  • Use in pregnancy and nursing mothers should be considered only when the possible benefits outweigh the potential risks.
  • Excessive doses of sodium salts may also lead to sodium overload and hyperosmolarity.
  • Large doses of oral citrate salts may result in gastrointestinal events such as diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting, and laxative effects. Diluting with large amount of water and administration after meals can minimise these effects.
  • Do not use concurrently with antacids.
  • Store below 30°C. Protect from moisture.
