GAVISCONPRO MENTHE, oral suspension in a sachet, belongs to a group of medicines called "anti-reflux". Reflux is a process by which acidic stomach fluid flows back into the esophagus. Unlike the stomach, the lining of the oesophagus is not resistant to acidity, which is why reflux causes pain and discomfort that feels like burning.

GAVISCONPRO MENTHE, drinkable suspension in sachet-dose, forms a protective layer which floats above the stomach contents. This layer prevents reflux and keeps stomach contents away from the esophageal wall, which relieves heartburn and acid regurgitation. It can occur during pregnancy or with hiatal hernia.

It can be aggravated if you eat a fatty or very spicy diet. If you drink too much alcohol, if you smoke, if you wear tight clothes, if you are overweight or when you lean forward or when you lie down.

Capacity : 20 sachets

Dosage

Adults, including the elderly, and children over 12 years: 1/2 sachet of 10 ml (1 teaspoon) 3 times a day after meals and if necessary at bedtime. In case of more intense pain, the dosage can be increased to 1 sachet of 10 ml (2 teaspoons).
