Full Prescribing Info
Use In Pregnancy & Lactation
BELCID FORTE should only be given in pregnancy when benefit outweighs risk. (Please discuss and take as directed by the doctor.)
Pregnancy: Antacids are generally considered safe as long as chronic high doses are avoided. Adequate and well-controlled studies in humans have not been done; however, there have been reports of antacids causing such adverse effects as hypercalcemia, hypomagnesemia, hypermagnesemia, and increased tendon reflexes in fetuses and/or neonates whose mothers were chronic users of aluminium, calcium and/or magnesium-containing antacids, especially in high doses. Studies have not been done in animals.
Lactation: Problems in humans have not been documented; although some aluminium, calcium and magnesium may be distributed into breast milk, the concentration is not great enough to produce an effect in the neonate.
