Maalox Plus Oral Suspension

Maalox Plus Oral Suspension combines two antacids that neutralise stomach acid to relieve heartburn and indigestion (dyspepsia) with simeticone, an anti-foaming agent that helps to remove gas from your stomach to reduce flatulence (wind). It has a fresh, lemony taste.

  • In small children use of magnesium hydroxide may cause hypermagnesemia particularly if they have renal impairment or dehydration. 
Do not take Maalox Plus if:
  • You are allergic (hypersensitive) to dried aluminium hydroxide gel, magnesium hydroxide, simeticone or any of the other ingredients in Maalox Plus.
  • You are feeling very weak and have no energy (debilitated).

Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines. This includes medicines you buy without a prescription including herbal medicines. Maalox Plus should not be taken at the same time as other medicines because Maalox Plus can affect the way other medicines work. If Maalox Plus is taken within one hour of any other medicine, it can affect the uptake of that medicine into the blood. Some medicines may be affected by magnesium hydroxide or they may affect how well magnesium hydroxide will work. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are already taking salicylates.
