How Ancool Oral Suspension works

Ancool Oral Suspension Sugar Free is a combination of four medicines: Aluminium hydroxide, milk of magnesia, simethicone and oxetacaine. Aluminium hydroxide is an inorganic salt that neutralises the excess acid in stomach. Milk of magnesia is a laxative that works by drawing water into the intestine through osmosis, making the stools soft and easier to pass. Simethicone is an antifoaming medicine which disintegrates gas bubbles and allows easy passage of gas. Oxetacaine is a local anesthetic that provides faster relief from pain due to ulcers or acidic injury in the stomach.
