Are Rolaids harmful if taken in excess?

My SO takes Rolaids like he's eating candy and I am worried that too many of these can be harmful to him. Do any of you know if they can be harmful if taken in excess?

  • Are those the same as Tums? Because I think too many Tums causes iron deficiency. But that is too much calcium in general. Too much of anything is harmful for the most part. But always with medications.

  • yes, too much of anything is bad.

    if he is having stomach acid issues that are so bad the rolaids aren't working, he should probably see his doctor about possible acid reflux. OTC Pepcid works well.
