Question by jachooz:
Does drinking water right after taking antacids dilute the medicine?
Ok, this is a strange question. If you take Rolaids or Tums and then drink water following chewing them does the water dilute the medicine and stop it from operating? Or does it matter at all? I have heartburn now because I am pregnant but I hate the chalky following taste and constantly drink after taking them. I even tried the Rolaids soft chews but they also leave a filmy taste and they are as well sweet…….. ought to I stay away from drinking after taking them or not?

Well, you can try other numerous foods or drinks that possibly have a base to them. Maybe you can try mixing some baking soda with water and drinking it? Sounds odd, I know, but baking soda is a base and it does support even out acids.
just some thing to believe about.
that, and I recommend the tropical flavor tums.
