If symptoms persist after the two day course of treatment is completed, medical attention should be sought. Do not exceed the stated dose. Keep out of the sight and reach of children.

Excessive administration of sodium citrate may cause gastrointestinal discomfort and diarrhoea. Excessive doses of sodium salts may lead to sodium overloading and hyperosmolality. Excessive administration of bicarbonate may lead to hypokalaemia and metabolic alkalosis, especially in patients with impaired renal function. Treatment is symptomatic and consists of appropriate correction of fluid and electrolyte balance.
The effect of sodium citrate is to render the urine less acidic.
