Does it have the same magnesium oxide as in Mylanta? Thank you
Milk of Magnesia is another name for Magnesium Hydroxide.
Mylanta contains Calcium Carbonate and Magnesium Carbonate.
Both preparations contain different ingredients but are used to treat the same symptoms.
Both preparations are antacids and are used to treat acid indigestion, heartburn, and sour stomach. Milk of magnesia also helps to stimulate the bowels to move and is used for constipation.
