I'm pretty sure it's not dangerous if you take a lot, there is no 'overdose' as such, but like someone above said it can cause bloating etc... I have awful heartburn and could easily swig it all day. I'm just trying to be sensible and put up with it as far as possible so I don't take too much. One sachet is only half a dose anyway, you're allowed 20mls at a time.
Well ive had awful heartburn and acid reflux all through this pregnancy and have lived off gaviscon.. seriously like taking big shots full of the stuff every couple of hours somedays and me and baby seems fiiiiineee, overdue, but fine so I wouldnt worry too much just take what ya need to take
I've been prescribed bottle after bottle of Gaviscon Advance- that stuff is far thicker (and more effective in my opinion) than the liquid sachets and I've just taken it when required. I've been swigging from the bottle like there's no tomorrow and have had no probs at all. My feeling is, if it comes from GP, it's fine!
