I think this stuff is great for trapped wind and heartburn but i am taking antibiotics at moment for kidney infection and have a little heartburn now, is it safe to take Gaviscon when on antibiotics, i just hate taking too much stuff when preg?

i'm not 100% sure to be honest... does it say anything on ur antibiotics... I'm on 175mg Aspirin daily and i know that i can't take ANY indigestion remedies HTH x

thanks Mums the Word, i think ill put up with it just in case, a glass of milk might help. It doesn't say on antibiotics...

you could also try some bread soda in a bit of water - that's what my mum always uses.... she drinks it and it breaks it all up - but again, not sure if that would have any effect on ur medication? Get better soon xo

Raw carrot is supposed to be good too (I never have any in the house so can't verify), and I heard yesterday that licquorice (sp?) is supposed to do the trick. It must work cos I haven't had any heartburn since I bought a bag of licquourice to test it out :o0

I've just started getting heartburn in the last few days and I've never suffered from it before. I've read a few different stories about how safe Gaviscon is it take. Milk...I'd just have to hold my nose......and liqourise......not a big fan....but will try it just to see if it works.
