Scheduling status: Proprietary name (and dosage form): Citro-Soda (granules). Citro-Soda cranberry (granules). Citro-Soda orange tablets (effervescent tablet). Composition: Citro-Soda and Citro-Soda cranberry granules: Each tablet contains: Sodium carbonate - 1690mg. Tartaric acid - 856mg. Citric acid - 700mg. Sodium citrate - 612mg. Contains sugar (liquid glucose) - 447mg. Pharmacological classification: A 18.3. Ion-exchange preparations. Pharmacological action: Citro-Soda has urinary alkalinising and gastric antacid properties Urinary alkalinizer: sodium bicarbonate increases the excretion of free bicarbonate ions in the urine, thus raising the urinary pH. By maintaining an alkaline urine, the actual dissolution of uric acid stones may be accomplished. Citrates (sodium citrate and citric acid) are metabolised to bicarbonates (see above). Gastric antacid: sodium bicarbonate, sodium citrate and citric acid react chemically to neutralise or buffer existing quantities of gastric hydrochloric acid but have no direct effect on its output. This action results in an increased pH value of stomach contents, thus providing relief of hyperacidity symptoms. Pharmacokinetics: Sodium bicarbonate: renal elimination; CO2 (carbon dioxide) formed is eliminated via the lungs. Sodium citrate and citric acid: citrates are oxidised in the body to form sodium bicarbonate. This is eliminated via the urine and less than 5 % is excreted unchanged. Tartaric acid: tartaric acid is absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract but up to 80 % of an ingested dose is probably destroyed by micro-organisms in the lumen of the intestine before absorption occurs. Absorbed tartaric acid is excreted unchanged in the urine. Indications: Citro-Soda is a gastric antacid and urinary alkalinising agent. As a urinary alkaliniser, Citro-Soda can be used to alleviate symptoms associated with inflammatory conditions of the bladder. Citro-Soda can be used to prevent crystalluria during sulphonamide treatment. Identification: Citro-Soda granules consist of sweetened, lemon flavoured granules. When added to water they effervesce and dissolve to form a clear, alkaline solution which is lemon flavoured. Citro-Soda cranberry granules consists of sweetened, cranberry flavoured granules.
