About Multicain Gel 100ml

Multicain Gel 100ml belongs to a group of medicines called antacids used to treat acidity, heartburn, indigestion, gastritis (inflammation of the stomach), and stomach upset. The stomach is usually protected from the acid by a mucous layer. In some cases, due to excess acid production, the mucous layer gets eroded, which leads to complications like acidity and heartburn. 
 
Multicain Gel 100ml is a combination of three drugs: Aluminium hydroxide, magnesium hydroxide and oxetacaine. Aluminium hydroxide and magnesium hydroxide belong to a group of antacids, whereas oxetacaine belongs to local anaesthetics. Aluminium hydroxide and magnesium hydroxide work by neutralising excess stomach acid. Oxetacaine exerts a numbing effect, thereby providing relief from pain due to ulcers or acidic injury in the stomach.
 
You are advised to take Multicain Gel 100ml for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you, depending on your medical condition. You may experience certain common side-effects such as constipation, diarrhoea, dizziness, and drowsiness in some cases. Most of these side-effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side-effects persistently.
 
Inform your doctor before taking Multicain Gel 100ml if you have low phosphate levels, high magnesium levels, kidney or liver problems, and taking antibiotics such as doxycycline, oxytetracycline, levofloxacin, or ciprofloxacin. Consult your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Multicain Gel 100ml should not be given to children as safety has not been established. Avoid consuming alcohol along with Multicain Gel 100ml as it could lead to increased acidity. Multicain Gel 100ml may cause dizziness and drowsiness; do not drive or operate machinery unless you are alert.

Disease/Condition Glossary

The stomach is usually protected from acid by a mucous layer. In some cases, due to excess acid production, the mucous layer gets eroded, which leads to complications like acidity. Due to this, acid frequently flows back into the food pipe (oesophagus). This backflow (acid reflux) irritates the food pipe and causes heartburn. Symptoms include heartburn, sour or bitter taste in the mouth, and difficulty swallowing. Indigestion is the feeling of fullness. It occurs due to slow gastric emptying. Symptoms include stomach pain, bloating, heartburn, nausea and vomiting.
