TheClindacmedicine is actually very good for indigestion. Even I got the vomistop medicine from online as I dint have the time to buy it from a retail store. It is very effective, and I always carry it with me. If at any time I feel nausea or vomiting because of indigestion, I immediately take this tablet to get instant relief. One of my friends introduced me to this medicine, and I must say I have benefited a lot from it.
