The sole difference between Maalox regular strength liquid and Mylanta regular strength liquid is the brand name. Both are considered antacids and anti-gas medications, and both contain simethicone, magnesium hydroxide, and aluminium hydroxide as active components. Because Maalox and Mylanta contain the same active components, they should not be taken at the same time.
Maalox and Mylanta are prescribed for the treatment of heartburn, acid indigestion, sour stomach, gas pressure, and bloating. These drugs are intended for use by individuals aged 12 and older. Unless otherwise advised by a physician, the medicine should be taken between meals and before night to alleviate symptoms. Maalox recommends that no more than 16 teaspoons be consumed in a 24-hour period. Mylanta recommends that no more than 24 teaspoons be consumed in a 24-hour period. If symptoms linger for longer than two weeks, a doctor should be consulted.
Before taking either of these drugs, individuals with kidney illness and those on a magnesium-restricted diet should consult a doctor. Prior to taking Maalox or Mylanta, anyone taking prescription drugs should see their doctor or pharmacist, as these antacids may interact with other medications.
