Immediately: Zantac (ranitidine) will decrease acid production and Maalox will help buffer the acid already in your stomach. For my patients having indigestion I usually recommend a drug like Zantac (ranitidine) taken as instructed on package insert along with an antacid like Maalox taken after each meal and at bedtime.
