Heartburn is a symptom of gastro-oesophageal reflux and can cause a burning pain in the chest rising up to the throat. Heartburn is caused by food and acid from the stomach washing back into the oesophagus that can also result in an unpleasant sour taste (acid regurgitation).
Heartburn is caused by stomach acid rising up into the oesophagus. When you lie down in bed, this can make it easier for acid to escape the stomach and to irritate the oesophagus lining, causing a burning pain in the chest rising up to the throat.
Antacids are heartburn treatments designed to give temporary relief from heartburn. They work by neutralising the stomach acid already produced, but don’t target acid production, so they may need to be taken repeatedly to maintain their effect.
Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects. For information about side effects please read the Consumer Medicine Information leaflet.
