Heartburn and acid reflux advice
for healthcare professionals

How Pyrocalm Control can help

Heartburn is extremely common, affecting up to 25% of adults in the UK.1

Many sufferers turn to pharmacy for treatment and advice and, as healthcare professionals, you play a key role in helping them to understand their symptoms and the treatment options available.

This page is dedicated to the support we offer in providing patient advice and the resources and sales merchandise available to pharmacy.

As the first branded omeprazole 20mg available over the counter that provides up to 24-hour confidence in heartburn control, Pyrocalm Control 20mg Gastro-Resistant Tablets can be used for the treatment of reflux symptoms (including heartburn and acid reflux) in adults age 18+, including pregnant and breastfeeding women.

Point of sale materials

As a busy pharmacy team, you’ll be well aware of the helpful, influential and time-saving benefits of point of sales materials (POS).

Items such as shelf edgers and wobblers not only assist in signposting patients to treatments, they also help to influence those last-minute purchase decisions many customers are known to make.

Our creative and carefully considered range of POS materials are designed to be eye-catching and engaging, helping to easily locate Pyrocalm Control and raise customer product awareness.

Consumer leaflets

We know you would like to devote much more one-to-one time to your patients, but we understand this isn’t always possible in a busy pharmacy environment

To support and compliment the pharmacy advice you provide, we offer consumer leaflets for patients to pick up and learn more about their condition.

The leaflets provide information and insight into heartburn and acid reflux and offer lifestyle tips and advice on how to manage and prevent symptoms as well as the different types of treatment available.


Product Display

With a large percentage of purchase decisions unmade before entering a pharmacy, it pays to stand out.

Striking and attractively designed product retail displays not only help to raise awareness and drive sales, they also enhance customer service and the pharmacy environment, influencing those all-important purchase decisions.

Designed to occupy minimum space while offering maximum impact, Pyrocalm Control displays help to showcase the product in an efficient and eye-catching manner.

Training, help and advice

While heartburn is a common condition, for regular sufferers it can severely impact on day-to-day life and pharmacy is frequently the first port of call for remedies and advice.

Often described as a burning feeling in the chest caused by stomach acid traveling up towards the throat2, certain lifestyle factors including smoking, drinking alcohol, being overweight and pregnancy appear to increase the risk of heartburn and acid reflux1.

To support self-treatment advice in pharmacy and better understand the condition, symptoms and the product itself, Pyrocalm Control has partnered with a highly respected pharmacy training provider to offer helpful insight and patient guidance.
