What is Gaviscon Chewable Peppermint Tablets and what it is used for;
Gaviscon Chewable Peppermint Tablets form a protective layer which floats above the contents of the stomach. This layer prevents stomach acid escaping from the stomach into the food pipe, thus relieving the burning feeling of heartburn and the feeling of discomfort in the throat and mouth.
Heartburn may occur following meals (e.g. when eating fatty or spicy food) or during pregnancy, or in patients with symptoms related to an inflammation in the wall of the food pipe (e.g. difficult and/or painful swallowing, mouth sores, vomiting).
Gaviscon Chewable Peppermint Tablets are used for the treatment of symptoms of gastro-oesophageal reflux such as acid regurgitation, heartburn and indigestion (related to reflux), for example, following meals or during pregnancy, and in patients with symptoms related to oesophagitis.
The active substances in each chewable tablet are 250 mg sodium alginate, 133.5 mg sodium hydrogen carbonate and 80 mg calcium carbonate as the active ingredients. For more information on other ingredients, see patient information leaflet included.
