Rennie Dual Action tablets work in two different ways:

Warnings and precautions:
As with other antacid products, taking these tablets can mask the symptoms of other, more serious, underlying medical conditions. If symptoms persist after fourteen days consult your doctor.

Rennie is designed to help relieve pain and discomfort associated with excess stomach acid. Pain/discomfort associated with cardiac conditions may on occasion mimic indigestion; such pain will not respond to Rennie, therefore it is recommended that
medical advice be sought if the pain does not go away.
Other medicines and Rennie Dual Action Tablets:
• Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription.
• If taking antibiotics (tetracyclines, quinolones), cardiac glycosides (digoxin, digitoxin), levothyroxine (a thyroid hormone), bisphosphonates (used for the treatment of osteoporosis), dolutegravir (an anti-retroviral medicine used for the
treatment of HIV infection), eltrombopag (a medicine used to increase the number of platelets) or other prescribed medicines (e.g. fluorides, phosphate, iron containing products) speak to your doctor before taking Rennie Dual Action

• If you are taking any thiazide diuretics (e.g. bendroflumethiazide), which are used to increase urine production, then you should tell your doctor before taking the product because he or she may want to monitor the calcium levels in your blood.
