Milk of Magnesia v Pepto Bismol
Milk of Magnesia always makes me feel sick and the mint flavour makes heartburn much worse for me.. When a person suffers with heartburn/reflux the advice is always never eat mint.. yet nearly all medicines are mint flavour! Milk of Magnesia also causes me to burp a lot and have tummy pains..Pepto Bismol is much better for me as it has a very neutral taste and coats the area as it is thick.. It is in my opinion much more effective and I do not need t take very much for relief..

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!
