Alka-Seltzer Original effervescent tablets are for fast and effective relief of general pain such as migraine, period pains, rheumatic and muscular pain, toothache, sore throat, nerve pain and the symptomatic relief of colds and flu. Alka-Seltzer Original effervescent tablets contain three active ingredients, aspirin, sodium hydrogencarbonate and citric acid. The aspirin is to relieve pain and inflammation. Sodium hydrogen carbonate and citric acid create antacids when dissolved in water which helps to neutralise stomach acid and relieve the symptoms of heartburn and indigestion. Alka-Seltzer Original effervescent tablets are most effective in relieving headaches accompanied by an upset stomach, usually after over-indulgence in food and drink, but can be used to relieve many other types of aches and pains.
Alka-seltzer must always be dissolved in water before taking. Dosage: adults and children, aged 16 and over: 2 tablets every 4 hours, if necessary.

Do not give to children aged under 16 years, unless on the advice of a doctor. If symptoms persist consult your doctor. Do not exceed the stated dose.
