I've been battling the stomach bug this week, and my poor tummy is churing and burning with acid and gas. My usual TUMS are not doing anything for me, so I thought I'd try Maalox. I didn't notice when I bought it that it has aluminum hydroxide as its main ingredient. I generally avoid aluminum in stuff like antipersperants. Anyway, I took 2 teaspoons full, and a few minutes later, I felt AWFUL!! I was dizzy, woozy and very weak, and just WEIRD feeling. I called the pharamcist, and of course, he didn't know of any such reaction. But I just found some information on the web (can't remember which sites now) that said that CAN be a reaction. I've never had this reaction to calcium or magnesium tablets. Just wondering if anyone else had. I'll be avoiding this one in the future!
