Gaviscon peppermint 600 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. Peppermint essential oil may help ease heartburn, upset stomach, and nausea.


Indications:
