Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
As I also noted on the other thread these medicines should not represent a problem for you. You may take Mylanta several times a day as you may need it (3,4,5,6...) point is to not take what you do not need . Need for Mylanta should diminish over time if taking a daily medicine to reduce acid such as Nexium or Prilosec or Prevacid.
If you should feel much ongoing need for Mylanta beyond day 2 weeks then I think you may want to consult a gastroenterologist.A presciption option such as Carafate may be added. That may coat and protect erosions and promote healing .
I hope that this is helpful for you.Let me know if you have further questions.Best regards,
