- treatment of symptoms such as acid bursting,
- dyspepsia (digestive disturbance,
- feeling of heaviness in the stomach) arising after eating,

Method of use, course and dosage:
The drug Gaviscon is taken inside. The tablet should be thoroughly chewed.
Adults and children over 12 years of age are given two to four tabas each after meals and before bed (up to 4 times per day).
If symptoms persist after seven days of use, the patient should see a doctor to review the treatment.
Elderly patients do not need a dose correction.
Patients with liver dysfunction do not need a dose change.
Patients with kidney failure should take the drug Gaviscon with care if they follow a low salt diet.
Syrup application, course and dosage:
The drug Gaviscon is used internally.
Adults and children over twelve years old are given 10-20 ml of suspensions after eating and before going to bed. The maximum daily dose is 80 ml.
Children aged six to twelve years are given 5-10 ml each after eating and before bed. The maximum daily dose is 40 ml.
After ingestion, the active substances of the drug Gaviscon quickly interact with the acidic content of the stomach. This forms an alginate gel with a pH value close to neutral. The gel forms a protective sheath on the surface of the stomach contents, preventing the appearance of gastroesophageal reflux for up to 4 hours.
In severe cases (with regurgitation), the gel enters the esophagus faster than the rest of the gastric contents, where it reduces mucous membrane irritation.
The reduction of irritation is felt 3-4 minutes after the drug Gaviscon is taken.
Use in liver disorders
Patients with liver dysfunction do not need dose correction.
