Side effects Gaviscon Heartburn and Indigestion 24 Sachets

Very rarely (<1/10,000) patients sensitive to medicinal components may develop allergic manifestations, such as urticaria or bronchospasm, anaphylactic or anaphylactoid reactions, abdominal pain, itchy rash, diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting. Ingestion of large amounts of calcium carbonate can cause alkalosis, hypercalcemia, acid reversion, milk-alkali syndrome, or constipation.

Pregnancy and lactation Gaviscon Heartburn and Indigestion 24 Sachets

Can I take Gaviscon Heartburn and Indigestion 24 Sachets when pregnant or breastfeeding?

Controlled open studies on 281 pregnant women did not demonstrate any significant undesirable effect of Gaviscon on the course of pregnancy or on the health of the foetus/newborn. Based on this and previous experiences, the medicine can be used during pregnancy and lactation. However, in view of the presence of calcium carbonate, it is recommended to limit the duration of treatment as much as possible. Pre-clinical investigations in animals have shown that alginate has no adverse effect on the fertility of the parental generation and offspring or on reproduction. Clinical data do not suggest that Gaviscon has an effect on human fertility.
