Gaviscon 200 ml Suspension

Antacid
The drug reacts with gastric acid to rapidly form a raft of alginic acid gel having a near-neutral pH which floats on the stomach contents effectively impeding gastro-oesophageal reflux for up to 4 hours, and protecting the oesophagus from acid, pepsin and bile.

Indications:

• Mild symptoms of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease.

Points of Interests:

• If symptoms do not improve after seven days, the clinical situation should be reviewed.
• Antacids will decrease the absorption of many medicines. The administration of antacids should be separated by 2 hours from other orally administered medicines, whenever possible.

How to use:

10 ml after meals and at bedtime.

All Active Ingredients:

Antacid.

Side effects:

• Generally well tolerated.

Cautions:

• Each 10 ml dose has 106 mg sodium content and a 78 mg potassium. This should be taken into account when a highly restricted salt diet is recommended.
• Each 10 ml contains 200 mg of calcium carbonate. Care needs to be taken in treating patients with
hypercalcaemia, nephrocalcinosis and recurrent calcium containing renal calculi.

Interactions:
