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.
