In brief: No but....

Tums (calcium carbonate) is calcium and can often be used to supplement calcium intake for people who are at risk for thin bones.
However, if you are taking Tums (calcium carbonate) daily for heartburn or indigestion or some other symptom that you are treating, then you could be masking a more serious problem and you should talk to your doctor.
