This medicine is available without prescription. However, you still need to use Gaviscon Infant carefully to get the best results from it.

  • Keep this leaflet. You may need to read it gain.

What Gaviscon Infant is and what is it used for?

Gaviscon Infant contains sodium alginate and magnesium alginate which belong to a group of medicines called 'reflux suppressants'.

Reflux is the process by which the stomach contents flow back up the tube that leads from the mouth to the stomach (known as the gullet or oesophagus). This can cause an infant to be sick, spit up more than normal and become distressed. Gaviscon Infant prevents reflux by stabilising the stomach contents, so reducing the incidence of reflux and bringing up of feeds (posseting).
