Gaviscon Strawberry Tablets act as a reflux suppressant, providing rapid and lasting relief from symptoms of heartburn or acid indigestion. Tablets are safe for use in patients 12 years old and up and during pregnancy or breastfeeding. Nearly everyone experiences heartburn and acid indigestion on occasion, but some individuals experience frequent and/or severe symptoms. Unlike simple antacids, which wear off quickly, Gaviscon Strawberry Tablets provide relief lasting up to 4 hours. Once in contact with stomach acid the medication forms a floating, gel-like barrier that prevents acid from escaping into the esophagus. This effect also works on a smaller scale to soothe and protect the throat if stomach acid is encountered when swallowed. After around 4 hours the gel barrier begins to break down and is eventually eliminated from the body as waste. Very little of the medication is absorbed into the bloodstream, and it does not interfere with acid production or the digestion process. Symptoms alleviated by Gaviscon Strawberry Tablets include:

  • 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

This product is also available in peppermint flavor. Both flavors are free of sugar, gluten and aluminum.

Dosage & Administration Gaviscon Strawberry Tablets are generally taken as-needed, typically after meals, before bed, and at other times when symptoms develop:
  • Patients 12 years old and up take 2 to 4 tablets as-needed up to 4 times per day.
  • Chew tablets thoroughly before swallowing.
  • Fluids may be consumed immediately after each dose if desired.
  • Avoid taking other medications for 2 hours before and after each dose unless approved by a doctor.
  • Do not administer to patients under 12 years of age without doctor instruction.
In cases of severe, chronic symptoms doctor instructions as to dosage and administration may vary. Some acid reflux sufferers take tablets as a preventive measure, approximately 30 minutes prior to anticipated symptoms, to prevent symptoms from developing in the first place.

Precautions & Side Effects

Note that, while everyone experiences heartburn or indigestion now and then, frequent or severe symptoms are often caused by a more serious underlying problem. If symptoms require treatment more than 4 times a day or for more than 7 consecutive days, a doctor should be consulted.

Otherwise healthy patients aged 12 and up are very unlikely to experience adverse effects from taking this product. Unfortunately individuals with certain preexisting conditions or taking certain medications are at greater risk of experiencing complications; speak with a doctor about potential risks before you buy Gaviscon Strawberry Tablets if:

  • On a calcium or sodium restricted diet
  • There is a history of heart disease, 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 Strawberry Tablets unless a doctor or pharmacist has verified that no negative interactions are likely.
