Are there any good over-the-counter medications for IBS c I have been taking probiotics metamusal and milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide)?

You can try a to do a food elimination diet where you eliminate an entire food category for 1-2 weeks to see if you improve. I would recommend a high strength probiotic of 80 billion.

Is Mylanta recommended? The Magnesium hydroxide is 400mg per teaspoon. I read one wasn't supposed to have more than 450mg supplement per day.

It is ok...: ...To use Mylanta up to 12 teaspoons per day for heartburn. It contains 400 mg of magnesium hydroxide per dose. That is not the amount of elemental magnesium which it contains. It is not suitable for use as a magnesium supplement. In fact, if you try taking large amounts, it would likely cause you to have diarrhea. If you have further questions, contact your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more
