Gaviscon Double Action Liquid provides fast and effective relief from the uncomfortable symptoms of heartburn and acid indigestion, in two different ways. First it neutralises excess stomach acid and then it forms a protective barrier over the stomach contents.
Gaviscon Double Action Mint Liquid has been specifically formulated for the treatment of gastro-oesophageal reflux. These symptoms include acid regurgitation, heartburn and indigestion which may occur following meals or during pregnancy, and in those who display symptoms of oesophagitis.
Gaviscon Double Action Mint Liquid suspension contains three active ingredients, sodium alginate, calcium carbonate and potassium bicarbonate, which all belong to a group of medicines called reflux suppressants. They work together to form a protective 'raft' on top of the stomach contents to prevent stomach acid from escaping into the oesophagus (food pipe) which causes pain and discomfort.
Shake well before use. Adults and children over 12 years: Take 10 - 20ml (two to four 5ml spoonfuls) after meals and at bedtime.
