Which Mylanta product, how much, when to give?
Which Mylanta product do you use? There is a children's Mylanta chewable tablet but that is for 2-11 years. K is 19 months and so I guess I should use the liquid form (there is no age mentioned on this and it seems like adults use this as well). My GI said that I should use this only on an occasional often do most of you use this? Also, how much do you give (the dosage listed for e.g on Mylanta Supreme just says 2-4 tsps but doesn't mention for what age or weight). Also, when do you give this (Does this have to be given at a different time from zantac and any PPI)? I also give her Mylicon for gas. Thanks!

Ryan was born May 20th 2008. 9 lbs 2 oz. Ryan’s magic bullet was 30mg of Prevacid capsules mixed with Caracream from Marci-kids (I am forever indebted to the team at Marci-kids), Claratin for the mucos, and Mirlax for the constipation. Within 2 months of this combo he jumped from the 6% to the 50% for weight and continues to climb. Be strong, listen to your instincts. Read his story for more specifics that just might help you too - Karen
Aluminum Free Mylanta Cherry Supreme is recommended for children. If you dont see it in your store the pharmacy will order it for you. It is about $4. You can get the dosage from the pharmacist. It can not be given within 2 hours of PPIs or Zantac. Go to and click on medication. Wealth of info there.
