Hydrochloride is a chemical.  You’ll have no doubt heard of it in a chemistry class, if that’s something you’ve ever studied.  You may also have heard of it used in reference to acid.  It is a salt chemical that is considered to be the result of a reaction of hydrochloric acid with an organic base.

Hydrochloric salts are most often referred to by using the name of the base that has produced it, and then by adding ‘hydrochloride’ to the end of it.  So consider a hydrochloride as the result of a chemical reaction.  It is a potentially harmful chemical that can be used in a number of solutions and in many different industries.

By converting insoluble amines into hydrochlorides, you will be able to make a water and acid soluble solution.  This is often desirable in medicine.  The medicine industry does indeed use hydrochloride, going to show that a hydrochloride isn’t always the most damaging of chemicals.  In fact, it can have a good effect on the body if used correctly.

Many pharmaceutical substances out there are prepared as hydrochlorides, so that they can quickly be released into the gastrointestinal tract.  The body will usually absorb a hydrochloride within fifteen or thirty minutes, making it a great substance to use to get medication into the body.  Furthermore, a hydrochloride has a longer shelf life than most of their bases, meaning that it’s also a substance that has the ability to preserve.

So whilst you may never have heard about what exactly a hydrochloride is, you probably use them more than you might think!

The term 'hydrochloride' is used for a kind of salt that is formed as a result of reaction of hydrochloric acid with a base that is organic. Mostly the organic base that is used in the reaction is mostly amines. You can understand the concept by looking at the reaction of pyridine and hydrochloric acid and the resultant substance is pyridine hydrochloride.

When it comes to the use of the substance, you can use it to convert insoluble amines into water and acid soluble. The process is particularly useful when you are creating substances that are used in the medications. You can find several pharmaceutical substances that are prepared by using the process to create hydrochlorides and the substances are used for the quick absorption in the gastrointestinal tract.

Hydrochloride is hydrochloric acid (HCl)  which is a strong electrolyte, will completely dissociate in the solution (H+,Cl-). Hydrochloric acid is made by passing hydrocloride gas in water. A typical concentrated hydrochloric acid contains 36g of hydrogen chloride in 100 ml of water.

Hydrogen chloride is a gas that dissolves in water to produce hydrochloric acid.  That makes it a toxic gas.

Why does it make your mouth so dry when taking it as the tablets duloxetine and
amitriptylene ? They may be good as painkillers, and they are a 'pain' in themselves causing such a dry mouth and horrid taste.
They may have different names in USA from here in UK
