Gaviscon Liquid - Soothing Relief for Heartburn and Acid Reflux

Are you struggling with heartburn and looking for effective relief? Gaviscon Liquid is your go-to remedy for preventing acid reflux and alleviating symptoms at the source. Available in both aniseed and peppermint flavours, this liquid offers comfort tailored to your taste.

Understanding Heartburn: Heartburn, a common symptom arising from acid reflux, occurs when stomach acid moves up into the food pipe or oesophagus. This irritates the delicate lining and leads to discomfort. Symptoms may include a sore throat, bad breath, an unpleasant taste in the mouth, cough, hiccoughs, hoarse voice, bloating, and nausea.

How Gaviscon Liquid Works: Containing three active reflux suppressants - sodium alginate, sodium bicarbonate, and calcium carbonate - Gaviscon Original creates a protective layer atop stomach acid. This layer prevents excess stomach acid from moving upward into the food pipe, offering relief from irritation and heartburn.

Safe During Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: Pregnant or breastfeeding? Gaviscon Original is a safe option to ease heartburn and acid reflux. However, consult your doctor or pharmacist before use to ensure suitability for your unique situation.

Interactions with Other Medications: If you're on other medications, it's crucial to consult your doctor or pharmacist before taking Gaviscon. Certain medications, including antihistamines, antibiotics, iron preparations, and others, may interact with Gaviscon, potentially causing side effects or reducing the effectiveness of your medication.

Dosage and Usage Instructions:

  • Adults & Children (over 12 years): 10-20ml after meals and bedtime, up to four times a day.
  • Children (6 - 12 years): 5-10ml after meals and bedtime.

When Not to Use Gaviscon Liquid:

  • Not suitable for children under 12 unless advised by a doctor.
  • Avoid if allergic to active ingredients (sodium alginate, sodium bicarbonate, calcium carbonate).
  • Consult your doctor if following a low sodium (salt) diet.

Possible Side Effects: While Gaviscon Original may have side effects, not everyone experiences them. Allergic reaction symptoms may include skin rash, difficulty breathing, dizziness, or swelling. If any side effects occur, stop use and consult your doctor or pharmacist.

Storage Information: Store in a cool, dry place below 30°C. Do not refrigerate or freeze. Check the expiry date on the original packaging and keep out of reach of children.
