About Alkasol Liquid 100 ml

Alkasol Liquid 100 ml is a urinary alkaliser indicated for the treatment of renal tubular acidosis, gout and kidney stones. Kidney stones are small, hard deposits made up of calcium, phosphate and other minerals/acid salts that stick together in concentrated urine. Renal tubular acidosis is a condition in which the kidneys fail to excrete acids into the urine; this causes the blood to remain too acidic.
 
Alkasol Liquid 100 ml contains disodium hydrogen citrate, which metabolises to bicarbonate and increases the excretion of free bicarbonate ions; this increases the solubility of cysteine in the urine and ionises uric acid to soluble urate ion. This helps in increasing the urinary pH, thereby makes the urine less acidic. 
 
You are advised to take Alkasol Liquid 100 ml for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you, depending on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience certain common side effects, such as abdominal discomfort, diarrhoea, tiredness, nausea, and vomiting. 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.

It is not known if Alkasol Liquid 100 ml affects your ability to drive; drive only if you are alert. Talk to a doctor before giving Alkasol Liquid 100 ml to children.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Kidney stones: Nephrolithiasis, also known as kidney stones, is a disease affecting the urinary tract. Kidney stones are small, hard deposits made up of calcium, phosphate and other minerals/acid salts that stick together in concentrated urine. They are the common cause of blood in urine and can be painful when passing through the urinary tract. Symptoms include severe pain, usually in one side of the abdomen and nausea. 

Renal tubular acidosis: It is a condition that involves the accumulation of acid in the body due to the failure of the kidneys to alkalise the urine appropriately. The kidneys fail to excrete acids into the urine, which causes the blood to remain too acidic. If not treated, it could lead to kidney stones, bone disease, kidney disease or failure.
