In brief: Antacids

Some of the most common antacids are Mylanta, which is a combination of Aluminum hydroxide and magnesium hydroxide, Tums, which is calcium carbonate, milk of magnesia, which is magnesium hydroxide, and Maalox, which is calcium carbonate.
There are also acid reducing medicines if regular antacids do not work.
