Drug Information on Tri Potassium Bisutrate
Medication Information: Tri-potassium dicitrate bismuth is prescribed to treat stomach ulcers or ulcers in the upper intestine (also called duodenal ulcers).
Your stomach naturally produces acid to help digest food. Acid can damage body tissues, so some cells inside the gastrointestinal tract produce a lining that is a natural barrier to protect the lining of the stomach and upper intestine from acid. If there is an imbalance between the protective barrier and the acid, ulcers develop in the gastrointestinal tract.
Tri-potassium dismitrate bismuth forms a protective layer around the wound. This reduces the pain of the wound and heals the wound.
