Patients with chronic renal failure may present hiperaluminemia. Laboratory tests: serum levels of phosphate should be monitored at monthly intervals or bimonthly in patients chronically undergoing hemodialysis who are receiving treatment with antacids for prolonged periods. Use during pregnancy: the use of antacids during pregnancy should only be performed under medical guidance.
