How does magnesium hydroxide relieve stomach pain?

    Magnesium hydroxide relieves pain by neutralizing the acid in your stomach. It also creates more water in your intestines. These activities should help you have a bowel movement if you are constipated. They should also relieve any pain associated with heartburn and indigestion. Magnesium hydroxide should be used to treat symptoms on a short-term basis only. Consult a doctor if your condition persists.
