I'm taking Gaviscon for gerd, i've also got ranitidine but i'm scared of side effects, will it be ok....?

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. ...Read more
