What is Gaviscon Double Action Aniseed Flavoured Suspension?

Gaviscon Double Action is a solution for treating indigestion and heartburn. It works by neutralising the stomach acid that is causing the pain and discomfort. It also forms a protective barrier over the stomach that will soothe the burning pain in the chest. Gaviscon Double works fast to provide relief and will last for up to 4 hours. The active ingredients are sodium alginate, sodium bicarbonate and calcium carbonate.

 

What is indigestion?

Indigestion is quite a common condition that affects most people, and in most cases is not a serious condition. Indigestion is caused by overeating for many people but can be brought on by other conditions. These include:

  • Stress
  • Pregnancy
  • Smoking
  • Drinking Alcohol

Indigestion can occur at any time but will most likely to happen shortly after eating food. Symptoms of indigestion include:

  • Belching
  • Nausea
  • Feeling bloated

The cause of indigestion is usually excess stomach acid coming into contact with the lining of the stomach. Another symptom of indigestion is acid reflux, also known as heartburn.

 

What is heartburn/acid reflux?

Acid reflux/heartburn is the condition where stomach acid gets out of the stomach and gets into the throat, causing a burning sensation. Despite what many believe, acid reflux is a symptom of indigestion and not its own condition. Everyone who experiences acid reflux will also experience other symptoms of indigestion.

 

Who is this Gaviscon treatment suitable for?

This Gaviscon medicine is suitable to be used by adults and children aged 12 and over. For children under the age of 12, consult a doctor before using. Anyone who is allergic to the ingredients contained in Gaviscon Double action should not use it.

 

Can this medicine be used by someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding?

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding and are suffering from heartburn and/or indigestion, then this medicine can be used if it is needed to be used. However, it is recommended that the advice of a medical professional is requested before using.

 

How should Gaviscon Double Action Aniseed Flavoured Suspension be used?

Shake the bottle before use. Use 5-10ml (one or two spoonfuls) after meals and at bedtime. If you miss a dose do not double the next dose, just take it as normal. If you use for 7 days and do not see an improvement, speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist.

There is a very rare chance of side effects as a result of an allergic reaction. There is a chance of the following side effects:
