Q: 53 year old male in ICU is complaining of  "acidity". One of the veteran nurse ask you to try "Green Goddess". As you look confuse to him, he further explained it as "Green Lizard"?

Answer:   "The Green Goddess," or "Green Lizard" is a slang for GI  (gastrointestinal) cocktail - consisting of 
  • 10-30 ml Mylanta,
  • 10 ml Donnatal and
  • 10 ml viscous lidocaine
Anecdotally, this mixture is said to be most effective for the treatment of dyspepsia.
