Maalox Oral Suspension helps to treat heartburn, acid indigestion, and inflammation of the stomach.
It contains two different medicines – aluminium hydroxide and magnesium hydroxide – which act as antacids. Aluminium hydroxide is a slow-acting antacid while magnesium hydroxide is quick-acting, so you get fast relief, as well as longer-lasting ease.
Maalox Suspension’s mint-flavoured formula works by lowering the amount of acid in your stomach. When it is prescribed by a doctor, it may also be used for lowering the amount of acid in your stomach or gut (intestine) when you have an ulcer.
Read the patient information leaflet carefully.
