What can you do when heartburn flares-up?
TUMS goes to work in seconds and is safe to take 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 for fast relief when you need it. When heartburn ‘breaks through’, TUMS safely goes to work in seconds to neutralize acid – so you’ll feel better fast.
