Price Gaviscon advance. Take before laying down. It puts a raft across the valve.

Lo La
gaviscon for reflux

Karleen Bryan
I like to take that but only thing that bothers me is it has mint flavor, mint is suppose to be bad for Gerd. Is this true?

Stephanie Schritenthal
Karleen Bryan sorry the rest of my comment is below- this stuff tastes a little like licorice to me. Bad but doable.

Mia Egnell
After every meal and nighttime! Works!

Mary Bond
Really good , it keeps me going.

Lo La
U r most welcome DDF😉

Stephanie Schritenthal
It doesn’t taste great but it’s doable. You can’t drink anything after. I have been taking right before bed for 4 nights now. And it has helped a lot! I ordered it on amazon.

Keely Davison
It’s brilliant stuff but I only take it when things get really bad as it gives me constipation. If I have to take it frequently then I take it with Movicol.

Stephanie Schritenthal
I have been having a very bad episode - so I’m taking it every night for a week or so. Constipation TBD. I’m not very regular anyway. But it is definitely getting me through this week. Thanks to some fabulous people here. I never would have known to try it!

Mareth Docherty
Does it work better than Ranitidine folks ?

Mary Fritz
It works different then raniditine. Raniditine lowers acid. Gaviscon coats and stays on top of acid in stomach so if reflux happens Gaviscon comes back up not acid. I take both of them when things are bad. I don't like the fact that Gaviscon has saccahrin in but when things are bad they are bad and I have to take it.

For me- it worked faster in a very bad episode (days long) for me. It may depend on your symptoms. The last week I had a constant lump in my throat and everything that I ate felt stuck. Plus coughing up.

Nicholas Armstrong Marshall
Ooh gad. Nearly 10 years on Zegrid and now hardly anything else works at all.

Mareth Docherty
I need to get off Ranitidine as I have osteoporosis. My symptoms are in the main a sore throat , nasal drip and sometimes a pain in my chest I will give it a go folks. Thanks x

Mareth Docherty also search saline nasal spray for GERD it LPR. It was suggested but I haven’t tried it yet.

Joanne Marie Day No side effects i use gaviscon duo when i need to.
