Rennie Peppermint tablets include the active ingredients of calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate. These act as antacids to comfort indigestion, heartburn, indigestion associated with acidity, hyperacidity, flatulence, upset stomach or pregnancy.
How effective is Rennie Peppermint?
Rennie Peppermint tablets contain the active ingredients of calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate. Rennie Peppermint turns acid into water and other natural ingredients to alleviate the discomfort and pain of indigestion, heartburn, indigestion related to acidity, hyperacidity, flatulence, upset stomach, and indigestion during pregnancy.
Rennie Peppermint tablets are taken when the symptoms appear, such as after a meal or before bedtime.
Indigestion appears with several symptoms generally after overeating, but it can also be brought about by stress, or because of smoking and drinking alcohol. The same symptoms may appear during pregnancy as the foetus will start to press on the stomach. Aside from the feeling of heartburn, there may also be symptoms of nausea, frequent belching, and sometimes regurgitation of food.
In order to help with the symptoms, it is important to take note of the source/s of the problem in order to take steps to alleviate the discomfort and pain.
Your pharmacist or doctor will advise on some lifestyle changes that may be necessary. For example, some people may need to lose weight, avoid alcohol, caffeinated and carbonated drinks, and avoid large meals. It is also essential to avoid eating large meals close to bedtime. Other people may be sensitive to specific food products such as red wine and chocolate. Highly acidic foods such as those with high-fat content including fried foods, citrus and tomato-based foods, as well as spicy foods, should be avoided at least for a short time until the symptoms improve.
Rennie Peppermint tablets are available for purchase online without the need for a prescription from the doctor. However, you are welcome to book an appointment with a health expert at Click Pharmacy to discuss how best to use this product. Rennie Peppermint tablets can be purchased in packs of 24 or 48 pastiles and will be sent directly to you by Next Day Delivery.
What dose should I choose?
Rennie Peppermint tablets are available in one dose, with each tablet containing 680mg calcium carbonate and 80mg heavy magnesium carbonate. They are not recommended for children under 12 years of age unless specified by a doctor.
For adults and children over 12 years of age, the standard dose is two tablets to be sucked or chewed as required, preferably 1 hour after eating and before bedtime, as this is when the symptoms tend to appear.
When heartburn is present between these times, an additional 2 tablets may be taken as required. The maximum dose in one day is ten tablets.
How should I take Rennie Peppermint?
When heartburn is present between these times, an additional two tablets may be taken as required. The maximum dose in one day is 10 tablets.
Rennie Peppermint can be used during pregnancy and breast-feeding and should be taken as instructed by the doctor.
They are not recommended for children under 12 years of age unless specified by a doctor.
The stated dose should not be exceeded. If there is an increased need for Rennie Peppermint tablets, or the symptoms are not better upon taking the tablets, then further investigation may be warranted. Heartburn, reflux, and indigestion may be symptoms of other infections and conditions that may require further research and treatment.
The treatment is recommended for two weeks, unless under the supervision of a doctor.
How does Rennie Peppermint work?
The pharmacist or doctor will advise on some lifestyle changes that may be necessary. For example, some people may need to lose weight, avoid alcohol, caffeinated and carbonated drinks, and avoid large meals. It is also essential to avoid eating large meals close to bedtime. Others may be sensitive to specific food products such as red wine and chocolate. Highly acidic foods such as those with high-fat content including fried foods, citrus and tomato-based foods, as well as spicy foods, should be avoided at least for a short time until the symptoms improve.
Some medicines may also cause hyperacidity. In this case, the doctor should be consulted to assess the severity of the symptoms and decide whether the medication should be changed or stopped.
Sometimes heartburn may be caused by stress, in which case measures should be taken to alleviate the underlying problems.
If the product is needed several times a day, every day, and over more than a week, the doctor should be consulted. Heartburn, reflux, and indigestion may be symptoms of other infections and conditions that may require further investigation and treatment.
How long do I take Rennie Peppermint for before I notice a difference?
A decrease in the severity of symptoms should be noted within 20-30 minutes of use of Rennie Peppermint Tablets, with most patients experiencing complete relief.
If a dose is missed, it is not necessary to take a double dose. The next dose should be taken when the patient remembers, and the regimen carried on at a regular frequency.
If the medication makes no difference to the symptoms, especially on repeated use, a doctor should be consulted as this might indicate the presence of another condition or infection which needs further investigation. If the product is required several times a day, every day, and over more than two weeks, the doctor should be consulted.
What are the side effects of Rennie Peppermint?
Like all medicines, Rennie Peppermint can cause side effects, but not everybody gets them. At the recommended dose, these rarely occur. Side effects may include allergic reactions such as rashes, itching, difficulty breathing, and swelling in the face, mouth or throat. Rarely there are symptoms of anaphylactic shock such as a sudden drop in blood pressure, shock, palpitations, difficulty breathing, abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhoea.
Long term use can lead to high levels of calcium and magnesium in the blood, especially in those with kidney conditions. This will cause symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, upset stomach, diarrhoea, tiredness, muscle weakness, impaired sense of taste, kidney problems, and headache.
Please speak to your doctor or consult our specialists at Click Pharmacy should you require any further advice.
When shouldn’t I take Rennie Peppermint?
Rennie Peppermint should not be taken with the following medicines:
Caution should be exercised in those with kidney problems, and the medicine should not be taken in those with severe kidney disease. Patients with high calcium in the urine or blood, or kidney stones, should also avoid Rennie Peppermint.
Always read the patient information leaflet before starting your treatment. The patient information can be found here.
