Well, maybe but I wouldn't do it until you call a pharmacist. The problem is antacids interfere with absorption. When you take an antacid it changes the PH in your stomach so some pills don't break down and absorb correctly so you end up passing it before you can get your dose into your blood. So don't do it until you can get some confirmation. I don't know what kind of pills you're on, the dose, etc. so I can't tell you for sure but it's a risk that you shouldn't take.
