I just bought the new softchew rolaids which taste so much better than tums. Does anyone know if they are safe to take? My doctor told me to take pepcid ac for acid reflux (pain that i've been having right under my chest) but i didn;t think to ask him about Rolaids Thanks

About two months ago when I first started getting heartburn, my doctor said use Rolaids. I had to buy the chewy chews 'cause I hate the chalky taste of the hard chewies... and TUMS bleh. A month after that as it got worse, she said take Zantac once at night and once around lunch with a gla__s of milk and tums/rolaids as needed. And today I went in, ... its still getting worse, she prescribed something for me to take that is stronger than Zantac or PepcidAC. So... you can call and talk to a nurse, but I was told Rolaids/tums are okay.

Thanks so much. I am hoping it does not get that bad, as i have been very lucky being 35 weeks and this is the first week I have gotten it.
