Probably not: It is common to use a drug like ranitidine with an antacid like gaviscon. As with most drugs, antacids - especially those with aluminum- can bind certain other drug sand reduce absorption don;t know if you're taking any other meds so i would separate the Gaviscon and other meds by at least 1-2 hours.
