Nodosis suspension contains sodium bicarbonate which belongs to a group of medicines called antacid. It is used to treat acidity, heartburn, indigestion and metabolic acidosis (a condition where the body fluids and tissues are unusually acidic).
Sodium bicarbonate works by increasing plasma bicarbonate, buffers excess hydrogen ion concentration, and raises blood pH, thereby reversing the clinical manifestations of acidosis. It also increases the excretion of free bicarbonate ions in the urine, thus effectively raising the urinary pH. Sodium bicarbonate acts as an antacid and reacts chemically to neutralize the stomach acid which provides relief of hyperacidity symptoms.
