You should immediately stop taking this product, as it can be harmful to the fetus. You should mention it to your gynaecologist that you have been using Lokit during the first weeks of your pregnancy. There are special tests that can be done at 16 weeks of pregnancy to determine if any harm has been caused to the fetus.

Use Gaviscon Plus for the bloating, as this is safe during pregnancy.
