I tried tums a couple of times and they work, but my only issue with this product is that it's very chalky and very hard and gritty when you chew it but it works so I'd recommend this to those who don't mind the gritty texture!!!!!
TUMS was my life saver when I was pregnant. I had such terrible heartburn so taking TUMS along with a prescription helped tremendously. I still take them after eating spicy foods. They definitely get the job done.
