Indigestion & Heartburn

Indigestion can be caused by acid from your stomach irritating the stomach lining or throat, which is known as acid reflux.

You could also experience heartburn, which is a painful burning feeling in the chest.  Weldricks Pharmacy offers a range of indigestion and heartburn relief products including liquids, tablets and sachets from popular brands such as Gaviscon and Rennie.

What causes indigestion?
Indigestion is when acid from your stomach irritates your stomach lining or throat. This is called acid reflux. This can be caused or made worse by certain foods and drinks.
What causes Heartburn?
Heartburn occurs when stomach acid backs up into the tube that carries food from your mouth to your stomach, known as the oesophagus. When food is swallowed, a band of muscle around the bottom of the oesophagus relaxes to allow food and liquid to flow down into the stomach. With heartburn, your stomach acid comes back up and causes an uncomfortable sensation.
