4.5 Interaction With Other Medicinal Products And Other Forms Of Interaction

4.9 Overdose

Excessive ingestion of calcium carbonate can lead to hypercalcaemia (characterised by gastro-intestinal pain, nausea and vomiting), metabolic alkalosis and reversible renal failure, sometimes presenting as the milk-alkali syndrome. Treatment should be symptomatic and supportive. Haemodialysis and other therapeutic measures, such as saline diuresis, have been used to successfully treat excessive ingestion of calcium carbonate antacid.

5. Pharmacological Properties 5.1 Pharmacodynamic Properties

Calcium carbonate is a potent antacid, neutralising gastric acid when taken orally.

Calcium carbonate neutralises gastric acid to provide fast relief from indigestion and heartburn.

5.2 Pharmacokinetic Properties

Absorption: Calcium carbonate is converted to calcium chloride by gastric acid (hydrochloric acid) in the stomach, with the resulting formation of carbon dioxide and water. Some of the calcium is absorbed from the intestines but the majority is reconverted into insoluble calcium salts such as carbonate and stearate, which is excreted in the faeces.

Distribution, Metabolism and Elimination: Once absorbed from the stomach, physiological concentrations of calcium are tightly controlled, principally through the effects of parathyroid hormone, vitamin D and its metabolites, and calcitonin. These control mechanisms are well documented in standard texts.

5.3 Preclinical Safety Data

Pre-clinical safety data does not add anything of further significance to the prescriber.
