In brief: Tums (calcium carbonate) vs Prilosec
There are many choices.
If it is the occasional heartburn then some might take Tums (calcium carbonate) as needed. If you get it regularly, you may want to try something like omeprazole/prilosec once daily. This should help. If it persists, see your doctor.
