A Tangy Cure
Member Name: topsyturvy
Advantages: tastes nice
I recently had a problem with indigestion and had taken quite a number of things to stop it from happening but I am not a big fan of mint and with everything for this problem being mint, I didn't have much choice. However, that was until I came across this Rennie Orange which is for this exact problem, it is a good option for people like myself that don't really like mint. I hadn't seen it in the supermarket before as I normally get the Tesco one but since that was out of stock I was willing to try this.
These Rennie Orange come in an orange rectangular box which has the Rennie logo on the front. These have a red band also and explain how many are included in the box and what they aim to do. On the reverse there is a bit more detail about what is included in these and how they should be taken. The packaging is very colourful and old compared to other medicines and it is very distinct to see. It is to the point and simple enough to be able to read the box and see what it is for.
This medicine comes in the form of tablets and inside a pack you get 24 which is quite a lot really. The idea is that these are meant to neutralise stomach acid and provide fast relief from indigestion, heartburn, upset stomachs, and all other forms of indigestion including during pregnancy. I followed the instructions on the box but there are a few warnings such as keeping these out of reach of children. Also, prolonged use of these should be avoided and it is not recommended that children under 12 use this.
If symptoms persist after 14 days of using these, a doctor should be consulted. On the box, it says that you should take two tablets if over the age of 12 and these should be sucked or chewed ad these should be taken preferably one hour after meals and before bed. However, for heartburn, an extra two tablets may be taken between these times. These can also be used during pregnancy and breast feeding but you should not take more than 16 tablets a day while on these.
While taking these, they do have a nice orange taste, they are quite tangy but they are really pleasant and I do find that these are very easy to chew. I followed the instructions and took two tablets when recommended and did find that these did help me. I don't know if they are the most effective I have ever used for this kind of problem but to avoid mint, they definitely are better. These did minimise my indigestion and made it less awful to deal with than if I hadn't bought these at all.
I do recommend these tablets if you do have indigestion but would rather something with a different taste to soothe the problem. These are easy enough to take and easy to chew and they do take effect on the problem. I don't know if I'd personally buy them again as they weren't the fastest acting when using them but if you do want to make up your own mind about them, then you really should give these a try as maybe for other people they may be quicker and more effective.
These tablets can be purchased in supermarkets and pharmacies and Boots etc but I got my box in Tesco where the 24 tablets box cost me £2 but the 48 box costs £3.on special offer.
