the aluminum free Mylanta is off the market - now what?
With our daughter we were told to do Mylanta when she was really bad and Soren is going through a really rough patch now but the Pharmacist told us the other Mylanta has been discontinued :( Is there an alternative?

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
It does not sound like it is going to be off the shelf for long. They have to change their lables because there is a small of alchol in it as does most medicine. Do you have enough to get you by for a month or so?

We have none b/c since we started with the reflux dx we've been unable to find it. The GI called me back today and I completely forgot to ask :(

Can you call the GI or the Ped and ask for an RX for Carafate. It's like super Mylanta.

Carafate is great. If you cant get a script for that you can dissolve Maalox chewables in water. It has the calcium carbonate like Mylanta but not the magnesium.

When my son was really young and would vomit liquids I gave him immediately, I held a tums smoothie (really tight and without letting the part I was holding get wet) and let him suck it. He loved it. But you can also dilute it. But...cherry supreme was also off the shelf here (and I panicked) but a few months later I was able to buy three. I think it might be back now?
Check with your
doctor first!
