Is it ok to take zantac during pregnancy?

My doc said it was ok to take zantac for heartburn but I'm not sure if it's really ok. I would think it's ok if my doc says so, but I'm just concerned. Anyone else have their doctor ok them to take zantac?

  • hey girly, i would say to take 2-3 tums instead of zantac, it is ok, but i would take the tums, that is what i did, take them before you eat, it works quicker and the berry flavored tums is pretty good... hope this helps you....

  • i was prescribed zantac for hartburn during pregnancy, it worked awesome! I had horrible heart burn all day/night. I still had to eat a few tums here and there but the zantac helped tremendously.
