Anti acid Long Term

Hi there,

I was wondering are there any long term health problems to taking maximum dosage anti acids two or three times a week? Not strong prescribed stuff just over the counter stuff. Thanks.

Re: Anti acid Long Term

That should be safe.

Still, if you've been having problems 2-3 days a week for a while now, you might want to see a doctor, just to find out why, and to make sure you don't have an underlying problem.

Re: Anti acid Long Term

I think you'll be fine. Many of those otc use to be prescription only and when they were they were prescribed for the long term for many people. I have had to take prescription meds like this for 20 years and when I have stopped something has always happened, a reoccurrence of my problems, etc. I do think you should try to be seen by a GI doc or ENT whichever your issues point to. =)
