Gaviscon Infant Sachets provide fast, soothing and long-lasting relief from the pain and discomfort of heartburn and acid indigestion for your children. It is a popular over-the-counter medicine for treating gastric reflux.
Gastric Reflux is most likely caused by certain foods and drinks. However, it can be a symptom of other conditions as well as a side effect from certain medications.
Gaviscon infant sachets are an oral powder which is suitable for children ages 1 to 2. It contains two main ingredients, sodium alginate and magnesium alginate. Both of these are known reflux suppressants.
These form a gel in the stomach when they come in contact with the stomach acid. This causes stomach contents to thicken and prevents reflux.
Gavison Infant Sachets should only be used for infants aged 1-2 years. You should not use this product if your child is allergic to any of the ingredients. Do not use if you're using a thickening agent for feeding. If your infant is taking medication, please consult a doctor or healthcare provider before using Gavison Infant Sachets.

Quick and easy
Had to order online as my sons doctor hadn't done the repeat in time but arrived within time before he ran out completely
Very happy with this
My daughter had silent reflux from about 3 weeks. First though it was colic, but found out it was actually reflux. Got prescribed Gaviscon by the doctor. I have now used it for 4 days and I can definitely see results. She is finally able to sleep and doesnt seem too bothered by the reflux anymore. Still some, but definitely getting better. The only problem is it has made her quite constipated. Apart from that I am very happy with this and so is my daughter :)
