What are Gaviscon Tablets?

Gaviscon Tablets are chewable tablets which can help to ease heartburn and acid reflux. Simply chew and swallow these tablets after meals and before bed to ease that irritating heartburn, any time, anywhere. These chewable tablets are available in delicious strawberry and peppermint flavours and are suitable for anyone over the age of 12.

 

What is heartburn?

Heartburn is a common condition that’s actually a symptom of acid reflux. Lots of people experience heartburn or acid reflux, and although it usually isn’t anything serious, it can be really annoying. Some of the most common symptoms of acid reflux that you may experience as well as heartburn include:

  • A sore throat
  • A hoarse voice
  • A cough
  • Hiccoughs
  • Bad breath
  • A bad taste in the mouth
  • Bloating
  • Feeling sick

 

How will Gaviscon Chewable Tablets help to ease my heartburn?

Gaviscon Chewable Tablets contain three active ingredients, sodium alginate, sodium hydrogen carbonate, and calcium carbonate. These ingredients work by acting as ‘reflux suppressants’, which means that they form a protective layer over the contents of your stomach, including stomach acid. This keeps stomach acid from moving up your food pipe and irritating its lining, tackling acid reflux symptoms at their source.

  • Antifungals, e.g. ketoconazole
  • Digoxin and beta blockers, which are used for heart conditions
  • Penicillamine, which is used for rheumatoid arthritis
  • Glucocorticoid, which is used for inflammatory and autoimmune disorders
  • Neuroleptics, which are used for mental illness
  • Thyroid hormones

The product worked really well. Bit strong on the peppermint flavour but I didn't care because I felt much better afterwards. C4U sent the product out quickly and I received it within a few days.
