    The hospital told us Mylanta, but also gave us the chewable quik-ese (the berry one) in a sample bag at the antenatal class

    I couldnt stand the gaviscon, made me sick. But the mylanta everescent is good, I used that when Im at home & the quick-eze chewables (berry) when Im out coz its more convenient

    Healthfirst here in Canberra say no to Mylanta because it contains aluminium - depends on how much and how often I think you take it.

    However, my GP said ok if I only need it once every couple of days.

    I find quickeze tabs good for fast relief - and avoid tomato based foods for dinner - and spicy foods ...
