If you have symptoms of heartburn, including a sour taste in your mouth and a burning pain behind or under your breastbone, you may take one antacid tablet to give you some immediate relief. However, if you’re taking antacid on a regular basis then you need to speak with your doctor so they can check whether ulcers could be the cause or something else; it could also be that you have irritable bowel syndrome causing indigestion and heartburn. Your doctor will usually want to examine your stomach lining using an endoscopy procedure after diagnosing you with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) so they can see whether the damage is caused by acid reflux from the stomach.1Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsApp Anonymous 2021-07-22T20:28:32+05:30Added an answer on July 22, 2021 at 8:28 pm An antacid is a type of drug that relieves heartburn, indigestion, and acid reflux by reducing stomach acidity.There are many different types of antacids available on the market.

These work to neutralize the hydrochloric acid in the stomach. Antacids work by binding with the hydrochloric acid in your stomach and forming a new compound that is non-acidic. This new compound reduces your symptoms and stops them from coming back for a while.0Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppLeave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Add a Video to describe the problem better.
