I have been using Maalox maximum-Strength with simethicone (gas-x in liquid form) for this month and I really have found it to help amazingly with settling my stomach. I randomly thought up the idea last week to go out and buy 5-hour energy drink bottles (the small ones at gas station counters) and pour and wash them out to use for on-the go situations. As I am sure many of you can relate, 1/2 the time I go out to eat I am fine, and the other half I feel like I am regurgitating my entire stomach into my throat. So now, if that ever happens. I have the 5-hour energy bottle in my pocket that i can take a sip of in the bathroom and it settles my symptoms wonderfully. I am going to attempt to do this to improve my quality of life until I get surgery next year. Hope I could give you an idea to help rid you of this incredibly underrated hell. :)

Are you taking any other medicines with it?

I am taking protonix 40 mg. I am trying to avoid upping my dosage so I am just supplementing it with maalox, but only when I NEED it and in small amounts. Taking too much of Maalox long-term can cause magnesium levels in the body to be dangerous to your health.
