Gaviscon Peppermint Liquid Relief belongs to a group of medicines called ‘reflux
suppressants’, which form a protective layer on top of the stomach contents to prevent
stomach acid escaping from the stomach where it works into the food pipe causing pain
and discomfort. Gaviscon Peppermint Liquid Relief is used for the treatment of
symptoms of gastro-oesophageal reflux such as acid regurgitation, heartburn and
indigestion, which may occur, for example, following meals or during pregnancy
