Detailed Answer:
Hi ,
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic for your query dear.
Have gone through your details and i appreciate your concerns.
As per your query answer is yes you can take both on the same day.
Gaviscorn is an antacid while Zantac is a H2 receptor antagonist(prevent secretion of acid from parietal cells of stomach).
They do the same thing but mechanism is different.
They are often used with each other in many patients.
