I don't experience many physical ailments and because of this, it is rare that I reach for any type of over the counter medicine. But when I do feel the need for some assisted relief, it is usually antacid that calls my name. I have tried several of them and one that has given me positive results is **Maalox Antacid and Antigas Maximum Strength Chewable Tablets**, a product that relieves several digestive problems/symptoms at once. **Antacid Commentary:** Maalox Antacid and Antigas, Maximum Strength Chewable Tablets are small tablets, measuring about one quarter of an inch in thickness with a width approximately the same as a dime. This particular container of Maalox tablets includes assorted fruit flavors, but there are other Maalox varieties that include single flavors. Maalox Antacid and Antigas, Maximum Strength tablets are chewable, making them easy to take and a great choice for those individuals who do not like swallowing tablets whole. The tablets have a chalky texture but they break apart easily and are actually easier to take than other antacids. Maalox Antacid and Antigas Maximum Strength Chewable Tablets are one of several antacids that I use from time to time to tame my sometimes uncomfortable acid indigestion, heartburn, and gas. I am prone to heartburn more than anything and it is generally triggered by eating spicy foods. I love spicy, well- seasoned foods as much as anyone, but these are the types of foods that are most likely to cause a nasty, upset stomach. I know the consequences I will face when I consume these foods, but the taste is so tempting I usually give in and eat regardless. Fortunately, there are many good, effective over the counter antacids to relieve the discomforts caused by eating spicy fare and Maalox Antacid and Antigas, Maximum Strength tablets are among many that perform effectively. One thing that I like about these tablets is the ease of taking them. There are other brands that make chewable tablets, but Maalox Antacid and Antigas, Maximum Strength Chewable Tablets are easier to take and the reason is because of the composition/manufacturing of the tablets. Other brands leave small bits of antacid stuck in your teeth. Maalox Antacid and Antigas, Maximum Strength Chewable Tablets are different. They are chalky, but due to their somewhat softer texture and more powder- like composition, the small bits dissolve away. You don't need to dig them out with a toothpick- your natural saliva will dissolve away the last remaining bits and send them to your stomach. Many factors make one antacid seem better than another, but the most important factor with any antacid is its ability to provide relief and Maalox Antacid and Antigas Maximum Strength Chewable Tablets succeed on most fronts. I usually need to take two of these tablets in order to neutralize my stomach acid so I can continue about my day or get back to sleep. Probably the best use for these tablets is to relieve heartburn. The bloating and gas elimination isn't as fast or quite as effective compared to the acid indigestion and heartburn relief, but it is still pretty good. Also, I have found that one tablet usually doesn't cut the mustard, er, I mean, the acid. I need two tablets following a round of highly spiced foods. **Bottom Line Viewpoint:** Maalox Antacid and Antigas, Maximum Strength Chewable Tablets are a very good product for those who suffer from multiple digestive problems when they overeat or consume foods high in spice or acid. I have the best luck when I take an antacid product made with famotidine, but if my heartburn or indigestion is a little less severe, Maalox Antacid and Antigas, Maximum Strength Chewable Tablets get the job done. They attack the stomach acid in minutes, allowing stubborn individuals like me an excuse to help themselves to the spicy salsa or the peppery Thai food without any worries.
