Uses of Riflux Fortz Chewable Tablet

Benefits of Riflux Fortz Chewable Tablet

In Acidity

Riflux Fortz Chewable Tablet relieves excessive acidity in your stomach which prevents heartburn and indigestion. Usually, it is used along with other medicines for management of your condition.
Continue taking it for as long as the doctor may advise you to. You need to take this medicine regularly to get the most out of it. Take a fiber-rich diet, avoid oily or spicy food and drink plenty of fluids while taking it to make sure you stay hydrated.

In Heartburn

Do not eat within 3 to 4 hours of going to bed.

In Stomach ulcers

Stomach ulcers are painful sores that develop in the inner lining of the stomach or gut (intestine). Riflux Fortz Chewable Tablet reduces the amount of acid your stomach makes which prevents further damage to the ulcer as it heals naturally.
