How To Use
  • Take Geri-Lanta as prescribed.
  • Taking too much of an antacid can reverse the effects and more acid will be secreted.
  • In certain conditions, however, it may be necessary to take the antacid as frequently as every 1 to 2 hours.
  • To be effective, chewable tablets must be chewed thoroughly before swallowing followed by a full glass of water.
  • Shake liquid forms well before pouring each dose.
  • Do not take any other medication within 1 to 2 hours of taking an antacid.
  • Since antacids coat the stomach, they can prevent other drugs from being absorbed properly if taken at the same time.

Side Effects
  • Geri-Lanta can cause nausea, loss of appetite, constipation or diarrhea, weakness, or headache.
  • If these symptoms persist or become severe, notify your doctor.
  • Notify your doctor if you notice black, tarry stools while taking Geri-Lanta.
  • If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Precautions
  • Tell your doctor your medical history, especially of: kidney problems.

Missed Dose
  • If you miss a dose, take as soon as remembered; do not take if it is almost time for the next dose, instead, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule.
  • Do not "double-up the dose to catch up.

Drug Interactions
  • Tell your doctor of all prescription and nonprescription drugs you may use, especially of: tetracycline, ferrous sulfate (iron), drugs used for arthritis (e.g., aspirin, indomethacin), digoxin, isoniazid, pseudoephedrine, diazepam, methenamine, ketoconazole.
