"Ovol 35mg Gas relief chewable tablets has two main inconveniences. First he is ineffective/very slow to work, so with one tablet I did not notice any difference and the problem persisted. Even when I took another tablet it was not resolved (and this pattern happens every time), so by the time you take the third, you don’t know if it actually works but super slowly or it does not (compared to other brands that work instantaneously from the first tablet). The second annoying issue is that when you chew the tablet some substance similar to bubble gum sticks on the top of your throat, it is a very uncomfortable residue from the tablet, it does not dissolve completely. So in total, I will not recommend this medication nor purchase it again because of his ineffectiveness and the weird substance that it leaves in the mouth."
"I find Ovol Chewables easy to use and fairly fast-acting. But like one of the other reviewers, I find the gummy reside on the roof of my mouth annoying. I don't recall having this experience with the Ovol Chewables I've used in the past, just with the ones I have used in the past few months."
"I used Ovoal Ultra Strength (180mg tablet) chewables. After chewing, there is residue left that is like chewing gum and sticks to the upper palette. I am not sure if I should swallow it or spit it out. But it does not seem right to swallow that chewing gum substance. I called the pharmacist and they have no idea at all. I called Church and Dwight the company that makes Ovol, and they said it should just turn to powder when we chew it. They are not aware of the pill turning to chewing gum and having a residue paste after. It seems like none of the pharmacists or even or manufacturing pharmaceutical company know about this or have the direct experience. I think this really needs to be sorted out so that we consumers really understand what we should expect."
