Gaviscon Infant is a powder for oral suspension.
It belong to a group of medicines called “reflux suppressants”.

This can cause an infant to be sick, spit up more than normal and become distressed. Gaviscon Infant prevents reflux by stabilising the stomach contents, so reducing the incidence of reflux and bringing up feeds (posseting).
