Gaviscon Double Action Mint Liquid, 300ml
Gaviscon Double Action Mint Liquid is a fast-acting and long-lasting acidity relief medication that provides symptom relief for gastro-oesophageal reflux. The double action refers to the fact that the medication works to neutralize stomach acid and create a barrier that prevents acid from rising up into the oesophagus. This can provide relief for heartburn, indigestion, and other symptoms associated with acid reflux. The mint flavor of the liquid is refreshing and helps to mask the taste of the medication.
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.
Can someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding use Gaviscon Double Action Mint Liquid?
Gaviscon Double Action Mint can be used to treat acid regurgitation, heartburn and indigestion, which may occur during pregnancy.
