Gaviscon Double Action Liquid Aniseed 150ml
- For dual relief from heartburn and indigestion.
- Gets to work instantly.
- Lasts up to 2x longer than antacids.
Gaviscon Double Action Aniseed is a combination of two antacids (calcium
carbonate and sodium bicarbonate) and an alginate and works in two ways:
- Neutralising excess stomach acid to relieve the pain and discomfort.
- Forming a protective barrier over the stomach contents to soothe the
burning pain in your chest.
Gaviscon Double Action Aniseed 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 and for symptoms of excess stomach acidity (hyperacidity).
Very rarely (less than 1 in 10,000 patients treated) an allergic reaction to the
ingredients may occur. Symptoms of this may include skin rash, itching,
difficulty breathing, dizziness, or swelling of the face, lips, tongue or throat.
