    This is a wonderful antacid. I have tried Tums, Maalox and Rolaids, and found them all to be very ineffective. These have a more pleasant taste than any of the other brands I've tried (kind of a fluffy marshmallow flavor), and the results are immediate and lasting. My husband doesn't think the taste is so great but he does agree that they are rather effective. With Tums, I would take 4-6 tablets and 30 minutes later feel like I needed more. These were also very helpful in the first trimester of my pregnancy; when nothing seemed to sooth the burn they usually worked (just be careful of your sodium level). These may cost a little more than some other antacids, but they are worth it.

    I could not even tolerate more than two of these. I got the Original Flavor, which is a weird cross between mint and a strong yet strange vanilla flavor. I did not care for them at all. They worked, but I seriously had to choke them down. Not something I wanted to deal with when I had bad heartburn.

      Comments about Gaviscon Extra Strength Chewable Antacid Tablets, Original, 100 ea:

      i have acid reflux and i'm 40. i take omeprazole every morning but gravity seems to win when i lay down for sleep. even with my bed top propt up i still get acid reflux and sore throats from it, but i take one gaviscon before sleep every night (for about 1 year now). it seems to help and i get better sleep. sometimes i will wake up around 4am and take another one, that seems to be about the effective time for 1. does foam a bit so will give a bit of gas and can make you stomach a bit rumbly in the morning sometimes. best i've found so far though.

      Comments about Gaviscon Extra Strength Chewable Antacid Tablets, Original, 100 ea:

      This product does work for the times when my prescription fails to prevent acid reflux problems. That being said, I try anything to not have to take it because it grosses me out so much. You have to chew the tablets before swallowing (according to the directions), and at first it has a taste reminscent of cake batter (sounds great, right?) but in an instant it starts foaming up and curdling in your mouth. Its so chalky, foamy, and gross that every time I have to use it, I start gagging and have to chug at least 12 ounces of water.
      I am glad to see from a few reviews that some people actually like the taste of this medicine, but I just wanted to get the word out there that the texture is sickening (in my opinion).
      Even though it works well, I will be looking for another option for occasional use that won't make me gag when I take it!

          Comments about Gaviscon Extra Strength Chewable Antacid Tablets, Original, 100 ea:

          I take a lot of NSAIDs for rheumatoid arthritis that do a number on my stomach. Even though I take a Rx med for acid reflux, sometimes it doesn't cut it when it's really bad. Gaviscon is the best antacid I've ever used and the doctor said I should use it as needed.

            Comments about Gaviscon Extra Strength Chewable Antacid Tablets, Original, 100 ea:

            I love Gaviscon and have difficulty finding it in the regular drug stores near where I live. I take a prescribed medication every morning before I eat because of a congenital patch of non-esophageal tissue that can cause esophageal spasms (horribly paiinful). The medication works, but every now and then I get a sour stomach, or a bloated feeling, and the only effective help comes from Gaviscon -- so grateful I can find it at Drugstore[@]

              Comments about Gaviscon Extra Strength Chewable Antacid Tablets, Original, 100 ea:

              These things are brilliant! I don't experience heartburn often, but when I do, I don't want to choke down a whole bunch of chalky antacids, I just want it to go away. With the Gaviscon tablets, I've never had to take more than two with a glass of water and the relief is all but immediate.

              They do exactly what they say they do, and quickly. Can't ask for more than that. They're more expensive than other antacids, by the bottle, but since you only need one or two (and more importantly they work well and quickly) I think they're actually better value.

              Also...they're reasonably tasty (as opposed to gag-worthy).

              The pain medication my husband took following shoulder caused him severe abdominal pain that wouldn't go away with the antacid tablets he has used for years. I went to the drugstore and bought every product I could find. Gaviscon was the only one that worked. He has continued to use it for his frequent heartburn and says it's the best thing he has ever used.
