Treatment of symptoms of gastro-oesophageal reflux such as acid regurgitation, heartburn, and indigestion (related to reflux), for example following meals or during pregnancy
Gaviscon Peppermint Tablets provide fast, soothing & long lasting relief from the pain and discomfort of heartburn & acid indigestion, which for example can occur after meals or during pregnancy.
Heartburn and indigestion can strike when least expected and with Gaviscon Tablets you need never be caught short again. Gaviscon soothes irritation in the oesophagus (food pipe) on its way down to the stomach. But once it has arrived in the stomach the action really begins.
Gaviscon works by forming a raft (thick layer) on top of the stomach contents soon after it makes contact with the stomach acid. The raft acts as a strong physical barrier and helps keep all the components of the stomach contents in the stomach where they work, not letting them seep back up into the oesophagus where they hurt.
Adults and children 12 years and over: Two to four tablets after meals and at bedtime
Consult a doctor before use if on a low sodium diet. The calcium content needs to be considered for patients with hypercalcaemia, nephrocalcinosis and recurrent calcium-containing renal calculi. If no improvement after 7 days seek medical advice
