What can you do when heartburn flares-up?
TUMS® antacid goes to work in seconds and can be used with other 24-hour heartburn medications
Heartburn medicines like Prilosec®, Prevacid®, Zegerid®, Nexium® and store-brand omeprazole are known as PPIs (Proton Pump Inhibitors). In addition to treating heartburn, they may also be prescribed by a medical professional to treat Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), ulcers, esophagitis and other stomach acid related conditions.
When it comes to managing your heartburn symptoms over a 24-hour period, PPIs are very effective medications. However, in a recent survey, more than 81% of people who used PPIs said they had experienced breakthrough heartburn.
In these situations, you can take TUMS® antacid for fast relief when you need it. When heartburn "breaks through," TUMS® antacid goes to work in seconds to neutralize acid — so you'll feel better fast.
