Sodium bicarbonate is also used to treat certain drug intoxications, including barbiturates, or salicylates or methyl alcohol poisoning . Sodium bicarbonate is available in generic form. Common side effects of sodium bicarbonate include:
Baking soda will increase your blood pressure which is dangerous for your health. Don’t use it ! For your condition, turmeric powder or raw is best to CURE them. I HAD AND CURED THEM myself, as well as my wife, my wife’s nephew. Doses, 2 capsules, 3-4 times a day. ( Do not use it too much, some one over used it had some reaction. It disappear when turmeric usage stopped. ) When all of the over the counter medication including Zantac did no longer help, turmeric stopped my suffering in less than 2 DAYS! continue taking it for 2 weeks, the stopped until now that over 2-3 years, no problem re-occur ! It’s cheap and available at most drugs stores.
Chronic ingestion of bicarbonate may rarely cause intravascular volume expansion with resultant hyporeninemia and hypoaldosteronemia. In this rare circumstance, the serum potassium may be elevated.
Rare cases of sodium bicarbonate abuse have been associated with features of Munchausen syndrome. These patients often present with an otherwise unexplained hypokalemic hypochloremic metabolic alkalosis.
Hypernatremia may cause water retention, weight gain, and edema, which may be important in some patients with congestive heart failure, renal insufficiency, or severe liver disease. [ Ref ]
