Could you take antacid for a growling stomache?

Yes: It would certainly be fine to try this, but excess acid may not be the cause. If it does not work try looking at your diet and seeing if specific foods (like dairy) set off the growling.

Yes.: You can try it. If the antacids help temporarily, then your problem is related to stomach acid. Good luck.
