1. Hmmm I doubt it. However, I don't use them, and it makes me wonder,
is it safe?

4. Tums/Rolaids type of antacids?
Or Tagament/Pepcid AC?

In any case, my doctor told me that Tagament as needed (sometimes I needed up to 4 at once) regardless of the dose info on the carton was pretty safe.

6. Tums. I have crazy heartburn this morning.
All i had for breakfast was some toast with a little butter. You wouldn't think that toast would come back to haunt me, but it has.

7. I was going to ask if you were pregnant
but that would seem a little odd. :blush:

Anyhow, I got raging heartburn when I was pregnant and ate up to 20 tums a day, with my doctor's blessing.

8. MrsCoffee is 8 1/2 months pregnant and drinking mylanta by the gallon
i would claim sympathetic pregnancy, but don't want to get my ass handed to me by the Ladies of DU.

9. Baking soda and water works much better.
It's instant and keeps working!
Tastes like crap though...

12. I usually just pour coffee on the ulcer to put out the fire...
but today it's staging its own little Tet Offensive down there.

13. Be careful with that. Ulcers can be vindictive.

14. Don't mind me, I'm the queen of doom--
That doesn't sound normal to me.

When my spouse experienced unusual heartburn, it was actually unstable angina, and he ended up having a quadruple coronary artery bypass two days later.
