In this post i'm going to tell you about my experience with Gaviscon. I've used Gaviscon in the past because i suffer from heartburn, which is also known as acid reflux. When my eating disorder was at it's worst and i kept being taken to A&E, something they would always give me, is a shot of this. As you can see on the front of the bottle it says 'original aniseed'. I absolutely despise the flavour of aniseed, which is more or less the taste of liquorice/sambuca. As much as i would not want to take this due to the flavour, i knew i had to as it actually really does work. Once i've taken it, i definitely feel a sort of soothing, and after about half an hour, i think it really makes a difference. Obviously everyone is different, so some it may work a lot quicker for and some it may not work at all. For me though, despite the taste, i feel that it works and lasts for a good few hours. Once i've taken it in the past, i actually won't need it again until i have another flare up.
