Sodium bicarbonate reduces stomach acid. It is used as an antacid to treat heartburn, indigestion, and upset stomach. Sodium bicarbonate is a very quick-acting antacid. It should be used only for temporary relief. If you need to treat long-term stomach acid problems (such as peptic ulcer disease, GERD), talk with your doctor about other medications.
SELUM-DS is Sodium Bicarbonate tablets which is used as an alkalinizing agent in the treatment of metabolic acidosis. Sodium bicarbonate also may be used as an alkalinizing agent in advanced cardiovascular life support (ACLS) during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and in the treatment of certain intoxications (e.g., methyl alcohol, phenobarbital, salicylates) to decrease renal reabsorption of the drug or to correct acidosis.
Sodium Bicarbonate also is used to increase urinary pH in order to increase the solubility of certain weak acids (e.g., cysteine, sulfonamides, uric acid) or in the treatment of hemolytic reactions requiring alkalization of the urine to diminish the nephrotoxic effects of blood pigments. In addition, the drug is used in the treatment of severe diarrhea accompanied by substantial GI bicarbonate loss and as an adjunct in the treatment of hyperkalemia to induce the cellular uptake of potassium and return the ratio of intracellular to extra cellular potassium concentration toward normal.
