Question:
I've got a problem with IBS and acid reflux. I have had it diagnosed in the UK. I need some medicine to control it as I've run out of gaviscon. Could you tell me what the best drugs available in Moscow are for getting rid of acid and for stopping it coming up into your throat and mouth. Thanks-and this is a great service you have here.

Answer:
There is a medication called Maalox which is fairly similar to gaviscon. It has aluminium hydroxide, magnesium hydroxid (both for acid neuralisation) and simethicone, which reduces bloating and wind. This is widely available in pharmacies throughout Moscow. Hope this helps. Best wishes
