What is Gaviscon Infant Sachets and what it is used for;
Gaviscon Infant contains sodium alginate and magnesium alginate which belong to a group of medicines called "reflux suppressants". Reflux is the process by which the stomach contents flow back up the tube that leads from the mouth to the stomach (known as the gullet or oesophagus). This can cause an infant to be sick, spit up more than normal and become more distressed.
Gaviscon Infant prevents reflux by stabilising the stomach contents, so reducing the incidence of reflux and bringing up of feeds (posseting).
The active substances in each dose of Gaviscon Infant powder are 225 mg sodium alginate and 87.5 mg magnesium alginate. For more information on other ingredients, see patient information leaflet included.
