Gaviscon

Gaviscon works by forming a raft (thick layer) on top of the stomach contents soon after it has made contact with the stomach acid. The raft acts as a strong physical barrier and helps keep all the components of the stomach contents in the stomach where they work, not letting them seep back up into the oesophagus where they hurt.

The terms heartburn and indigestion are often interchanged, but are actually two different conditions. Heartburn occurs when acid, which normally sits within the protected lining of the stomach, escapes back up into the oesophagus (food pipe). Because the oesophagus is not as well protected as the stomach the acid can irritate the lining. This can cause painful symptoms such as burning, pain (usually behind the breastbone) and a feeling of sickness (often described as a 'bad taste in mouth')

Indigestion can also be caused by acid irritation - hence the common confusion. The term 'indigestion' encompasses a range of digestive symptoms. These tend to be milder - in comparison with heartburn - but include pain/discomfort in the upper part of the stomach, sickness and nausea and an uncomfortable bloated feeling.
