Do not take Gaviscon if you’re taking or have taken ibuprofen or aspirin.
Gaviscon is a very safe medication. Most patients who take this medication don't have any side effects, but if you do happen to get a side effect, it's likely to be a mild problem and that it will go away when you stop taking Gaviscon.
Some types of Gaviscon may be more likely to make you feel sick or cause vomiting, constipation or diarrhea due to their ingredients.
On very rare occasions, it's a possibility to have a serious allergic reaction, known as anaphylaxis, to Gaviscon. This reaction has been reported in less than 1 in 10,000 patients.
