Alternatives: The problem is most antacids are from the 2 chemicals but you can use Gaviscon which is a little different and so could be used without over use. However I do not know if you can use meds or are on the H2 receptor blockers (Zantac, Pepcid, (famotidine) Axid) These can help with the heartburn as well. You can try these and see. I hope it is some help but depends on your provider. ...Read more

If taken in excess it can cause fluid loss and dehydration, which could effect your other meds. If taken as prescribed, it should not cause problems, but talk to your doctor and/or pharmacist to be sure. ...Read more
