What is Aluminum Hydroxide Magnesium Hydroxide Simethicone

Aluminum hydroxide magnesium hydroxide simethicone are used together to treat gastrointestinal conditions such as heartburn, dyspepsia (acid indigestion), and sour stomach, associated with gastrointestinal gas or flatulence.

Aluminum hydroxide and magnesium hydroxide are antacids that partially neutralize gastric acid secretions, thereby increasing the pH of the gastric contents.

Simethicone causes dispersion of gas and prevents the formation of mucus-surrounded gas pockets, allowing elimination of the gas pockets.

Mylanta® and Mylanta® Maximum Strength Suspension are two popular U.S. brands containing this combination of drugs.
