About Remegel Wind Relief and how it works

This medicine helps relieves the symptoms and discomfort caused by indigestion and excess acidity such as heartburn, flatulence, belching and burping.

This medicine has two main ingredients which work together to relieve the pain and discomfort caused by excess acid and trapped wind: calcium carbonate and simeticone. Calcium carbonate works by neutralising excess acid and protects the stomach lining from acid attack. Simeticone is an antiflatulent and works as an antifoaming agent. It joins small bubbles of gas trapped in the stomach to form large bubbles which can then be easily expelled as wind or during belching or burping.

This medicine is available in the form of soft tablets that are chewed.

Consult your doctor if your symptoms do not improve, or if they get worse during treatment with this medicine.
