ANTACIDS AND ENTERAL FEEDS

Aluminium-containing antacids can interact with high-protein liquid enteral feeds (in enteral or nasogastric tubes) within the oesophagus to produce an obstructive plug (a bezoar).
It has been suggested that if an antacid is needed, it should be given some time after the nutrients, and the tube should be vigorously flushed beforehand.
