Avoid unnecessary use of antacids

Oct 05, 2011
Be cautious of popping the heartburn pills indiscriminately. Calcium containing antacids cause constipation and magnesium containing ones cause diarrhoea. Antacids also interfere with absorption of certain drugs such as tetracycline. Use antacids only when necessary. Watch your lifestyle and food habits. Avoid eating spicy foods, a major cause for acid built up. Try some home remedies like drinking butter milk or lemon juice.
