Brief Answer:
One more dose of Gaviscon.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Did you have similar complaints in the past?
If Gaviscon helped you, you should take one more dose as written on the bottle for now.If this is recurring you can ask your doctor for a prescription of Omeprazole for 2 weeks.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
