What is Alka-Seltzer Original?

Alka-Seltzer Original is an effervescent antacid and pain reliever which contains three active ingredients: aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid), sodium bicarbonate, and anhydrous citric acid. 

The aspirin is a pain reliever and anti-inflammatory, the sodium bicarbonate is an antacid, and the citric acid reacts with the sodium bicarbonate and water to form effervescence.

What is Alka-Seltzer Original Used For?
