    What does everyone use for this?? I can't stomach a liquid medication but was looking on getting some tablets. My stepdad recommended Remegel chewy mint ones but can we just use any? Do they all have the same ingredients??

    I find liquid gaviscon the best but also use the rennie chewable ones which are good, never tried the remigel ones. x

    I use gaviscon tablets, they wok for me. Milk can help, but not for everyone. Yogurt would probably be better.

    Not all heartburn tablets have the same ingredients, some should not be used in pregnancy, so read the label/ask in the store/pharmacy for something that's ok in pregnancy!

    Drinking milkshake at mo as hate milk on its own like you. Sometimes milk makes me sick tho so I wanna try the tablets.. I do occasionally use the gaviscon liquid mixed in milk which is yuk but I can't swollow it without it being in milk. It's not nice heartburn tho!! Just wish there was more out there to buy that what there is!! X

    I have used asda's own heartburn relief tabs that are suitable for use in pregnancy they have worked for me during the day up to now but not so much at night anymore. I've just been docs as I have a chest infection so I asked for some heartburn relief stuff and he's prescribed me a huge bottle of gaviscon advance so hoping that works....plus it's free on prescription !!! Yay

    Omeprazole on prescription is amazing, say good bye to any heartburn with just one tablet a day ( depends how bad your heartburn is!)
