                             What are Gaviscon Strawberry Flavour Tablets ?

Gaviscon Strawberry Tablets belong to a group of medicines called “reflux suppressants” which form a protective layer on top of the stomach contents to prevent stomach acid from escaping from the stomach where it works into the food pipe causing pain and discomfort.

 

                             What are Gaviscon Strawberry Flavour Tablets used for?

Gaviscon Strawberry tablets are used for the treatments of symptoms of gastro-oesophageal reflux such as acid regurgitation, heartburn and indigestion, which can occur for example following meals or during pregnancy.

 

Before taking Gaviscon Strawberry Tablets:

 

Do not take this product if:

You know you are allergic to any of the ingredients as very rarely difficulty in breathing and skin rashes have occurred (see further information for a full list of ingredients).  

 

Take special care before treatment with Gaviscon Strawberry Flavour Tablets

This medicine contains sodium (10.6mmol per four tablet dose) and calcium(3.2mmol per four tablet dose).

If you have been advised to follow a diet restricted in either of these please consult your doctor.

Please also talk to your doctor regarding these salt contents if you suffer or have suffered from significant kidney or heart disease, as certain salts could interfere with these diseases.

 

If you have phenylketonuria, note that the product is sweetened with aspartame, a source of phenylalanine.

 

Please consult your doctor if you know you have reduced amounts of gastric acid in your stomach, as this product may be less effective.

 

Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

You can take this product if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.  As with all medicines, the treatment duration should be limited as much as possible.
