with acid reflux worse. I use tums on occasion. My doctor didn't seem to happy about my decision since I have other medicines that I take also on a daily basis. I wasn't sure if it was a drug interaction. I would like to stay away from prescription medicine b/c of my health issues. Acid reflux seems like it is getting worse now. Does anyone know of any other options that help with the acid reflux other then tums? Not sure if it is enough. I seem to have acid reflux more often.
