Milk of Magnesia v Pepto Bismol
You should only take Milk of Magnesia as a laxative, because that's what it is! It says it right on the bottle, it isn't for heartburn, it's to help you shit. On the other hand, Pepto is to help coat your stomach and it is also made to stop diarrhea. I'm not too sure why anybody would take a laxative to try help their stomach, you should be taking Mylanta or a stomach antacid to help with stomach pains, not a laxative, no wonder why you feel like shit!
