Can I give Gaviscon to my dog?
He's been vomiting an coughing Asked by Marnie Juntunen 1 year ago.

No. Gaviscon is likely to make him worse, as the higher quantity and concentration of acid in a dog's stomach compared to a human's may well cause the alginic acid and aluminium hydrochloride (the two gelling agents) in Gaviscon to form a gel plug, blocking his esophagus and causing great distress and possibly permanent gastrointestinal damage. The aluminum in Gaviscon can also damage a dog's kidneys, which are less tolerant of heavy metal poisoning than human kidneys. If he's only vomited and coughed for a short period, he may well have been eating grass and is just hawking it up again. If the vomiting and coughing continue, take him to a vet. DO NOT try to self-medicate unless you want to kill him. Answered by Jean Abdel 1 year ago.

Gaviscon For Dogs Answered by Heather Maha 1 year ago.

You can, but only if you are experienced. You need to know exactly what's going on to be causing all this. Gaviscon would, for example, be useless if your dog has Kennel Cough, which is what this sounds like!! Far better would be to see your vet and take his advice. In case your dog does have KC, keep him outside until the vet is ready to see you. This is highly contagious and if you take him into the waiting area, he will infect all the other dogs in there, even possibly vaccinated ones because like the human flu virus, this can mutate. ps Gaviscon is an antacid. Answered by Brett Bilski 1 year ago.

Let his stomach rest for 24 hours. Leave water available but don't feed him anything. Tomorrow feed boiled and drained hamburger with cooked white or brown rice along with a tablespoonful of canned pumpkin (not the pie filling) and see if that firms up the stool. Pepto Bismol is for vomiting and Gaviscon is not good for dogs. If the diarrhea continues, get in touch with your vet as the dog may need a course of antibiotics. Answered by Leisha Golob 1 year ago.

Don't give medication to your dog blindly or based on casual advice. Your dog needs a vet quickly since he's coughing and vomitting - not Gaviscon which is for heart burn and indigestion. First check what he's been eating or chewing just before his vomitting and cough - anything stuck in his throat that he's trying to expel?? But do get him to the vet asap in case it's something stuck further down his esophagus that you can't see or reach. Answered by Rodger Donahey 1 year ago.

Gaviscon??
Last night I had some bad reflux that kept me up last night, so today I bought some gaviscon but I'm afraid that it might make me sick to my stomach. So I guess my question is can it make me sick to my stomach (ie actually throwing up) and would I be able to take my nausea medicine (phenergan) with it? Asked by Alesha Kesich 1 year ago.

Gaviscon won't interact with Phenergan and will work well together. All my patients have been prescribed Phenergan and an antacid concurrently. As far as can it make you vomit - Gavison is a combination of aluminum hydroxide and magnesium, just like Riopan. it can cause mild constipation or diarrhea as less common adverse reactions. It should not make you sick. Answered by Celeste Kuzio 1 year ago.

Answered by Stanton Barager 1 year ago.

Gaviscon is prescribed for those who suffer from gas, heartburn, indigestion or sour stomach. Drugs.com states that this drug can be taking as a liquid or tablet and should not be taken longer than 2 weeks. Though many side effects associated with this drug are mild, for some they may become severe. Answered by Cesar Sarabando 1 year ago.

Epidural is a completely safe procedure, and highly recommended. When opting for a natural [No epidural] birth, you experience heavy, extreme pain, and it is much harder to remain alert for the excitement of this special new arrival! But with the epidural, not to be confused with a spinal tap which is much more invasive, you are numb from the waste down, unable to feel the pain but highly alert and awaiting the arrival of your bundle of joy! Epidurals are painless, especially in comparison to a natural childbirth, and there are no long term side effects for you or the baby. This is one of modern medicine's very few but exceptionally amazing wonders! Answered by Katherina Donkor 1 year ago.


Gaviscon and diarrhoea? ?
I've had diarrhoea on and off for the past 5 weeks and we put it down to nerves due to my exams!

Its no 12:35 and my stomach hurts again! What shall I do? I also nearly fainted twice yesterday and I feel dizzy (possibly cause I haven't eaten tidy due to the fact I get diarrhoea after I eat!) What could I have, or is it just nervous making me like this? Please help me? Thank you in advance!:-) Answered by Blythe Cookman 1 year ago.

Gaviscon is for heartburn and indigestion, it won't stop diarrhea. Go to your local pharmacy and get anti-diarrhea tablets. It's more than likely your exams tthat'scausing your anxiety but it it continues make sure to see your doctor. Hope the exams go well for you. Answered by Mila Treichel 1 year ago.
