What is gaviscon?

Alamag 300 mg-150 mg Chewable Tab
Drug Name: ALUMINUM/MAGNES ANTACID-ORAL
Other Brand Names: Gaviscon, Gelusil, Maalox, Mylanta, Wingel
Uses: This medication is used to treat the symptoms of too much stomach acid such as stomach upset, heartburn, and acid indigestion. Aluminum and magnesium antacids work quickly to lower the acid in the stomach. Liquid antacids usually work faster/better than tablets or capsules. This medication works only on existing acid in the stomach. It does not prevent acid production. It may be used alone or with other medications that lower acid production (e.g., H2 blockers such as cimetidine/ranitidine and proton pump inhibitors such as omeprazole).
