Gaviscon Cool Mint Liquid, 200 ml
What Gaviscon Cool Mint Liquid is and what it is used for:
Gaviscon Cool Mint Liquid is used for the treatment of symptoms of gastrooesophageal
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.
Gaviscon Cool Mint Liquid 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).

take 10 – 20 ml after meals and at bedtime, up to four times a day.
