I'm going to order some from the Canadian pharmacy (i'm in the US) since I read here that it's better quality. just wondering if liquid or tablets is more effective, or if it's the same. Shipping would probably be cheaper with the tablets, but I want the one that works the best.

Hi diaba,
I don't know about Gaviscon, but I think the liquid always seems to work better than tablets for me. Hopefully somebody will be by soon who has experience with that specific product.
Good luck,

I think the liquid worked better for me also. My doctor thinks liquid works better as it coats your stomach/esophagus better.

I used both liquid forms of the UK, and US. And tablets --Canadian and UK.

I like the UK version better (for liquid and tablets), but UK will not ship them anymore due to FDA rules =(. Ran out of the liquid but i still have the to make my supply last! You could try mixing of course. I take the 1 tablet of the UK version and drink the US version right before bed. No weird side effects yet..been doing it for 1.5 months.

I also take antiacids (2 tablets) + the american gaviscon liquid after meals (15 ml)..this helps a lot. Taking the gaviscon since antiacid will cause some rebounding of acid =P
