Canyon, this is the type of massage I do. It's unbearably "new-agey" but I just ignore all the talk about chi and chakra and just go for the massage.
Have you tried the Mylanta yet?

Pepto Bismol is made with the active ingredient Bi****h Subsalicylate, with 262 mg per 15 ml dose. This ingredient is formulated to relieve and upset stomach and diarrhea. The inactive ingredients in Pepto Bismol include benzoic acid, flavor, magnesium aluminum silicate, methylcellulose, red 22, red 28, saccharin sodium, salicylic acid, sodium salicylate, sorbic acid, and water.
There is your comparisons. It looks like Maalox is identical to Mylanta but for me, only the latter really works.
I would not take Pepto for C or gas because it's typically taken for D.
