Question about Mylanta

I accidentally took an extra large dose of Mylanta a few days ago. 3 Tablespoons instead of Teaspoons. I had very bad diarrhea the next day.

Do you think I need to call my doctor about this? I didn't realize I did the wrong dose until a couple of days later and now I feel OK so I don't think there's any lasting damage. Am I wrong??

I know I sound like an idiot but I've been having stomach problems and have so many aches/pains I wouldn't know if something new was going on.

Thumbs up Re: Question about Mylanta

This isn't a clinical answer, I am not a doctor. But, my husband takes it by the bottle for indigestion and upset stomach and always has. I know this is awful and I have told him so. He is very hard-headed though. But he is still around and kicking and doing fine after doing this for what I presume to be years and years. I don't think you have anything to worry about. But that is more opinoin that anything based on facts.

Hope you feel better.

Best Regards,
Ramsey
