Personally I'm not the biggest fan of Tums, I find other antacids work better. That being said, these are a cheaper alternative if you suffer from only mild heartburn. Plus the flavour of these smoothie ones are fantastic and not at all chalky like the regular Tums tablets.
thought very chalky, these things wok. it tastes like really old candy from your childhood. but when it comes down to its purpose, this product really works! You can usually find these on sale at your local drug store, and i keep them in my cabinet just in case.
I find that Tums are good for temporary relief of occasional heartburn or indigestion, but for someone who has regular heartburn I would suggest something else. I like the Smoothie version though, they taste pretty good for a chewable medicine.
When i have acid reflux i use Tums and it works ok. I must say i prefer Pepcid. They are effective but i have to take a few! They are very affordable. I always have some in my purse just in case i need them.
