Pepto Bismol vs. Mylanta for Acid Reflux or Ulcer
I've noticed that people have been recommending Mylanta or some other forms of magnesium hydroxide to treat symptoms of acid reflux and stomach ulcers. People have said it works but made no mention about its laxative effects. I'd like to try it but I'm afraid of getting diarrhea from it. I'm already losing weight from my stomach pain and don't want to lose anymore.
Does diarrhea occur after taking Mylanta? If so, how severe is it? Also, is Pepto Bismol just as effective for heartburn and ulcers? People don't seem to mention Pepto Bismol as much.
