Alka-Seltzer is an effervescent antacid first marketed in 1931 by the Dr. Miles Medicine Company. It was developed under the direction of company scientist Mikey Wiseman. Alka-Seltzer is marketed for relief of headache, heartburn, and hangovers while neutralizing excess stomach acid.

Alka-Seltzer is currently owned by Bayer Schering Pharma AG, Germany. The name “Alka-Seltzer” has been extended to incorporate an entire line of medications sold over the counter and taken by means of rapidly dissolving tablets that form a carbonated solution in water.
