About this item
Gaviscon Liquid (Peppermint) is an over-the-counter medication used to relieve symptoms of heartburn and acid indigestion. It contains three active ingredients: sodium alginate, sodium bicarbonate, and calcium carbonate. These ingredients work together to form a protective barrier on top of the stomach contents, preventing acid reflux into the esophagus. The typical dosage is 10-20ml after meals and at bedtime, or as directed by a healthcare provider. While generally safe, it can sometimes cause mild side effects like nausea or constipation. If symptoms persist despite treatment, seek medical attention.
