Peppermint Flavour

Gaviscon Liquid helps relieve the burning pain of heartburn and the discomfort of indigestion - helps protect inflamed oesophageal tissue - helps prevent further inflammation by forming a physical barrier to reflux.

The alginate "raft" helps keep gastric contents in place, thereby reducing the likelihood of these irritating the delicate lining of the oesophagus.

Gaviscon Double Strength (advanced) Liquid provides powerful, lasting relief from the symptoms of heartburn and indigestion. The soothing, peppermint-flavored fluid neutralizes acid as it coats the throat, and once in the stomach it forms a gel barrier over the top of stomach contents to prevent further acid from escaping into the esophagus. Relief is felt within moments and effects last for around 4 hours.

Gaviscon Double Strength (advanced) Liquid contains twice the concentration of sodium alginate compared to the regular strength version, creating a more powerful gel barrier to combat moderate to severe symptoms often caused by:

  • Overeating or eating certain types of food;
  • Pressure on the stomach, such as from tight clothing;
  • Relaxed muscles in the throat, such as from hormonal changes;
  • Certain medications, such as prednisolone;
  • Medical conditions, such as hiatal hernia or gallstones;
  • Obesity;
  • Pregnancy;
  • Certain physical activities;
  • Many other reasons.

Regardless of the cause, symptoms are all-too-familiar for those that suffer chronic or severe heartburn or indigestion. Gaviscon Double Strength (advanced) Liquid minimizes or eliminates the associated discomfort and pain, including:

  • Bloating
  • Belching
  • Flatulence
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal pain or pressure
  • Gurgling or growling stomach
  • Acid regurgitation into the throat or mouth
  • Acidic taste in mouth
  • Burning in the stomach or upper abdomen

Directions for Use

Most people use this product as-needed, typically after meals and shortly before bed. It may also be taken about 30 minutes before an activity that tends to trigger symptoms to prevent symptoms from developing in the first place. In severe cases, or when symptoms are caused by an underlying medical condition, doctor instructions for use may vary.

The standard dose for patients 12 years old and up is 5 to 10 ml, taken up to 4 times per day. Patients under 12 should not be given this product without doctor instruction.

If the product is needed on a daily basis more than 4 times per day or for more than 7 consecutive days a doctor should be consulted. While everyone experiences heartburn or indigestion on occasion, severe or persistant symptoms are likely caused by a more serious underlying problem.

Precautions Before Use

Otherwise healthy patients aged 12 and up are very unlikely to experience adverse effects from taking Gaviscon Double Strength (advanced) Liquid. Unfortunately individuals with certain preexisting conditions or taking certain medications are at greater risk of experiencing complications, particularly if:

  • On a calcium or sodium restricted diet
  • There is a history of heart or kidney disease, or impaired renal function
  • Taking other medications

As a general rule other medications should not be taken within 2 hours before or after taking a dose of Gaviscon Double Strength (advanced) Liquid unless a doctor or pharmacist has verified that no negative interactions are likely.
