When you initially took it, did it burn your throat?

When your throat healed, did it burn less?

Hi there,

Not sure if this is the same thing, but I use the liquid Gaviscon (we only have one strength here in Finland) and it does burn a little bit on the way down, but nothing really bad or anything, just like sipping a spiced tea kind of feeling.

Hope this helps,

We have had a number of inquiries on where one can purchase Gaviscon Advance made by Reckitt Benckiser (not available in the US).

This product is  sold in the United Kingdom.

I've taken Gaviscon, not sure if it was Advance, but it didn't burn. It just foamed a lot and tasted like chalk.
