You won't find Tums or Rolaids here. The options here for antacid are lousy to be honest. As mentioned, there is Sal de Andrews and I believe another antacid product in a liquid recently became available (I've seen at Plaza Vea). The pharmacies sometimes sell Mylanta in tabletas or a similar type of antacido ... usually about a sol per tablet and not, in my opinion, nearly as effective as Tums.

Bismitol tablets are the same thing as Peptol Mismol.
