This medication is effective in treating various symptoms caused by excessive stomach acid, including stomach upset, heartburn, and acid indigestion. It also provides relief from excess gas-related discomfort, such as bloating, belching, and feelings of pressure in the stomach or gut.

Simethicone, one of the components, aids in breaking up gas bubbles in the gut.
Aluminum and magnesium antacids act swiftly to reduce stomach acid levels. This medication targets existing acid in the stomach and doesn’t prevent acid production. It can be used alone or in combination with other medications that lower acid production, such as H2 blockers.
