Gaviscon Advance is a chewable tablet used to relieve the symptoms of heartburn and indigestion. This pack contains 24 peppermint flavoured tablets.
This medicine contains two active ingredients; sodium alginate and potassium bicarbonate. They relieve heartburn symptoms by reacting with stomach acid to form a raft, similar to a ‘lid’. The raft sits on the stomach acid to prevent the acid from backing up into the food pipe.
This advanced form of Gaviscon forms a stronger raft than Gaviscon Original, and may be recommended to users with more troublesome symptoms.
Yes, Gaviscon contains sodium alginate and potassium bicarbonate, do not use this medicine if you are allergic or sensitive to any of these ingredients. Additional ingredients are listed in the patient information leaflet.
You should talk to your doctor before use if you suffer from kidney or heart disease, or if you have been told to follow a salt restricted diet.
Please note, these tablets are sweetened with aspartame. Talk to your doctor before use if you suffer with phenylketonuria (PKU).
