**Mylant**a has been a good Over-the-Counter medication for me when it comes to treating stomach aches, heartburn, and indigestion. I don't get sick too often, but I always keep a bottle of Mylanta on hand since this is the most common ailment I get. **Mylanta Maximum Strength liquid antacid** comes in 12 and 24 ounce bottles that are a unique aqua color. There are currently four flavors as well: Regular, Mint, Cherry, and Orange. I prefer Cherry myself since it's somewhat sweet and offsets the somewhat chalky texture of the product. The symptoms that **Mylanta **claims to treat seem to stack up well with my experiences, which are as follows: • heartburn • acid indigestion • sour stomach • upset stomach • pressure and bloating (gas) I take about 1 tablespoon of **Mylanta** when my stomach is feeling queasy or I have heartburn. The symptoms lessen with 45 minutes or so. However, I usaully need a second dose a few hours later to take away most of the pain. This medication goes down easily (just remember to shake the bottle) and has no bitter aftertaste. There are some possible side affects associated with **Mylanta **as follows: • diarrhea • stomach upset • constipation Unfortuantley I sometimes get a touch of the first one on that list after taking **Mylanta**. It's not full-blown diarrhea, but everything loosens-up down there. But the side-affect does not last long and is tolearable. I don't take many Over-the-Counter medication but **Maximum Strength Mylanta** is one that has always worked for me. It greatly relieves symptoms of an upset stomach and related maladies. It's also available in chewable tablets which may be better when traveling or to take to work. I recommend this product without hesitation, but just hope you don't need it very often.
