Reflux: You can certainly take gaviscon and sudafed together, but if you are trying to treat heartburn there are other alternatives that should do better for you. First sudafed works well for nasal congestion and is not likely to give you much improvement in heat burn. Good heart burn medications include: Zantac, Tagamet, Prilosec and Nexium (esomeprazole). You could also try TUMS, mylanta or other antacids.
