Antacid Medications Market Overview
Antacids are used to treat acid reflux that causes heartburn, indigestion, and stomach upset. They
provide quick relief from heartburn, which is a major symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease and
indigestion. Treatment with antacids is symptomatic and is usually recommended for minor symptoms.

have reported allergic reactions to antacids. Antacids with magnesium may cause diarrhea, while those
containing calcium and aluminum may cause constipation. Long-term use may cause kidney stones and
may increase the risk of contracting osteoporosis. Popular antacid brands include Alka seltzer, Gelusil,
Milk of Magnesia, Maalox, Gaviscon, Mylanta, Rolaids, and Tums.
Distribution channel of Antacids
Antacids are mainly sold through two distribution channels, namely chemists and non-chemist. Nonchemists comprise grocers, general stores, and food stores. Abbott’s Digene and Pfizer’s Gelusil have a
doctor heritage. Eno and Pudin Hara have an ayurvedic base and are available over the counter and are
aiding in growth of the antacid medications market. Over-the-counter availability of antacids have
enabled individuals to self-medicate their bouts of acid reflux, which can increase probability of suffering

powder form, and melt-in-mouth granules.
