A gastrointestinal cocktail, (also known as a GI cocktail or gastric cocktail), is a generic term for a mixture of liquid antacid, viscous lidocaine, and an anticholinergic primarily used to treat dyspepsia.[1] The GI cocktail may also deceptively mask pain originating from the heart.[2]

There is a wide variety of GI cocktail recipes in use today. A very popular one is a mixture of Maalox, viscous lidocaine, and Donnatal, in equal parts.[3] A mixture of 10-30 ml Mylanta, 10 ml Donnatal and 10 ml viscous lidocaine is known as "The Green Goddess," or "Green Lizard."[4] The efficacy of this mixture for the treatment of dyspepsia is generally considered superior to treatment with only any one of its components, due to their varied mechanisms of relief; however, a recent study found that a GI cocktail was no more effective in relieving stomach pain than an antacid alone. The treatment may also provide relief for hiatal hernia patients suffering acute symptoms. [5]
