Gaviscon Double Action Liquid Mixed Berries 150Ml

Gaviscon Double Action Liquid is an all in one remedy for both indigestion and heartburn. This medicine works for up to four hours, helping to ease indigestion and symptoms like wind and bloating. If you’re suffering from indigestion or acid reflux and need a way to ease your symptoms after every meal or at bedtime, Gaviscon Double Action Liquid can help. Available in original aniseed, peppermint and mixed berry flavour.

Dosage: Always take Gaviscon Double Action Liquid exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor / Chemist4U pharmacist has told you. Shake the bottle before use.

Working: Gaviscon Double Action Liquid contains three active ingredients that work together to relieve acid reflux and indigestion. The first two are antacids, calcium carbonate and sodium bicarbonate, which work to neutralise excess stomach acid and turn it into a harmless substance like water to ease the irritation of your stomach lining. The third is sodium alginate, which works by forming a protective layer over your stomach contents, helping to prevent acid reflux and ease irritation all in one.

Causes: There are various reasons why you might be suffering from indigestion and heartburn, like lifestyle choices, or it might be triggered by certain food, drink, and medication. The most common reasons are the result of eating fatty, greasy, or spicy foods; overeating or eating your food too fast; consuming too much caffeine or alcohol; smoking and anxiety, and some antibiotics and pain relievers.
