Gaviscon Peppermint Chewable Information
What are Gaviscon Tablets?
Gaviscon Chewable Tablets are suitable for children and adults over the age of 12 years to treat symptoms of heartburn and indigestion and are available in a tasty peppermint flavour.
Each tablet contains 3 ingredients that work together to instantly neutralise the stomach acid and to keep it in the stomach where it belongs, protecting you from further pain and irritation.
What are Gaviscon Tablets used for?
Gaviscon tablets provide effective symptomatic relief from the pain and discomfort caused by indigestion and heartburn.
Indigestion and heartburn can affect anyone and most commonly occur after eating. Indigestion can cause you to feel pain and discomfort in your upper abdomen that may be accompanied by feeling bloated, sick or having excess wind.
Heartburn or acid reflux can also be a symptom of indigestion that results in a burning pain in the chest caused by stomach acid coming up into the food pipe.
If you are unsure whether you are suffering from indigestion or heartburn or you are experiencing recurrent episodes you should speak to a doctor or pharmacist for advice.
How do Gaviscon Tablets work?
Gaviscon Chewable Tablets contain 3 active ingredients, Sodium Alginate, Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate and Calcium Carbonate. These ingredients work together to protect and prevent unpleasant symptoms of indigestion or heartburn. They quickly reduce the pH of stomach acid and also form a protective layer in the stomach to prevent its contents moving up into the food pipe.
