Q: Are tums okay during pregnancy for heartburn?
I get bad heartburn at night due to my extreme craving for lemons. I try to stay away from them as much as possible at night, but I tend give it.

Plus, they have calcium. Bonus.
Q: How safe are tums to take during pregnancy?
Tums are on my “safe list” from my Dr and I take it whenever I have indigestion, but I am hesitant to take it very often because I kind of remember reading something about taking too much of it being bad for you or something… Any good info on it?
A: I do not think you have anything to worry about my doctor said they were fine just don’t go over the daily recommended amount they were my best friend during my pregnancy I took them everyday cause I had heartburn and ingestion so bad and my little girl is healthy and happy best of luck
Q: Effects of Tums during pregnancy?????
Are there any adverse effects from using Tums for heartburn during pregnancy. I try not to exceed the daily dose, but there are days I do take the max, depending on my heartburn.
Does anyone know any adverse effects that have been caused from Tums?
I know the plus side of it is that they are loaded with extra calcium.
Thanks again ladies!!
A: Many moms eat TUMS like candy during pregnancy. Heartburn can be nasty! I certainly took a lot of them (especially with the first 2 kids) and everything turned out OK.
The calcium in the TUMS is good for you.
Actually, if you pop one about every 15 minutes for the first 2 hours or so *AFTER* the birth, it can even help with your afterpains!

Q: TUMS during pregnancy?
Hey! I’m 16 wks. I am experiencing some heartburn. And of course the normal response and safe solution is take TUMS. But i am also taking a synthroid (thyroid medication), prenatal vitamins and i have a yeast infection for which i am taking a 7 day treatment which has to be inserted at night time before bed… (sounds like fun, huh?) Well, i was wondering if anyone knows if it is ok to take tums also now, though i am taking all of those medications. I have called the dr’s office, but they haven’t called back yet. Anyone? Thanks in advance…
A: Tums is perfectly safe regardless of your other medications. It is calcium carbonate. It will also help you get your daily intake of calcium. It will not affect your yeast infection, I suggest avoiding sugars and eating a lot of yogurt get the kind that says wih added acidiphillus to help combat the yeast infection, acidophillus tablets are heplful too.
Q: What do you do when Tums won’t fix heartburn during pregnancy?
It is So bad, I always feel like my throat is being eaten away by acid, and Tums will help for about 5 minutes, and then it’s back. Suggestions?
A: When I read this the firs tthing that popped into my head was “ZANTAC” but someone beat me to it!
I used the ultrastrength tums (the HUGE ones) and when i couldn’t even lay diagonal without my throat burning and feeling like I was seconds away from vomiting, I ran for the zantac. it’s honestly a lifesaver

How did they work for you and how often did you take them?
Is it ok to take 6 a day as needed?
A: Not well at all, for me or anyone I know for that matter.
And i wouldn’t take 6 a day, that’s excessive. It’s a lot of magnesium.
My mom used to pop them like candy, and she had really bad stomach problems a year later that required surgery (not to scare you! just remember, it’s medicine, and never go up to a maximum dosage if you can help it, ESPECIALLY during pregnancy)
