The European Union has banned popular remedy Milk of Magnesia, used in treating indigestion, ulcers and upset stomach, as it contains sulphate levels well above the recommended limit.
GlaxoSmithKline GSK stopped manufacturing the product last autumn but were allowed to sell their supplies, the Daily Express reported.
AdvertisementThe stockpiles have gone so low that the bottles are being sold for up to 20 pounds, which is about 10 times their normal price, on eBay.
GSK is believed to be changing the recipe to comply with the EU limit.
