Cherry Mylanta
Ok, I am sure this has been discussed...but how the heck can I get some of the Cherry Mylanta with this recall going on? How long til it is back on the shelf???? I know there are some generic equivalents but I can't find any. Is it so bad to give a mL or two of the regular mylanta? I used that with my older son not knowing of the cherry mylanta and the pediatrician never told me which kind, just said give mylanta as needed... Anyone know the status on this recall? 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
I would say that you would be fine to use the Maalox in a pinch.. I just wouldnt long term. CVS has a generic version if you have one on those in town. You can also disolve Maalox Quick Disolve chewables in water. They use calcium carbonate vs aluminum. Under 12 months=1/4 tablet, 1-3 yrs is a 1/2 tablet.

Thank you for the info on the Maalox tablets. I might have to give those a try. Thanks for emailing Mylanta too. Let us know what you find out about the recall.
Check with your
doctor first!
