    WHAT ARE GAVISCON PEPPERMINT FLAVOUR TABLETS?

    Gaviscon Peppermint Flavour tablets are used to treat symptoms of gastro-oesophageal reflux such as acid regurgitation, heartburn and indigestion which may occur following meals or during pregnancy and to treat symptoms of excess acid production.

    Gaviscon Peppermint Flavour Tablets contain sodium alginate, sodium hydrogen carbonate and calcium carbonate.

    The sodium alginate forms a raft when it comes in contact with stomach acid, which acts as a protective barrier over the stomach contents thus stopping the acid from refluxing and thus soothing the burning sensation in your chest.

    HOW TO TAKE GAVISCON PEPPERMINT FLAVOUR TABLETS?

    These tablets should be chewed before swallowing.

    Adults and children over 12 years – Take 2 to 4 tablets after meals and at bedtime when symptoms occur, up to 4 times per day.

    Children under 12 years – only to be given under medical advise.

    If symptoms persist after 7 days or get worse, please consult your doctor.
