  • Yes on Tums, I'm pretty sure it's no on the Dramamine. Ask your OB.

  • Tums with calcium added is even better! I was able to take Dramamine for a trip once, but check with your doctor!

  • My midwife told me i could take up to 6 tums in a 24 hour period once i started getting heartburn. After that, if i still had heartburn, i could take a pepcid.

  • I should say I was told by my OB to take the Dramamine...

  • Check with your doc on Dramamine. Mine said not at all in the first trimester, and after that, only if I absolutely needed it. I think it might be class C.

  • Tums, yes...I took them multiple times a day during the entire third trimester. The dramamine, I'm not so sure about. Check with a doctor.

  • Dramamine--I dont think so. TUMS yes IN MODERATION!!!!! I have terrible heartburn/reflux while pregnant (i am having #4) and a word of warning, too many antacids can cause kidney problems!!!!! I just got over a kidney infection caused by taking too many tums. I was going thru 1 big bottle in probably less than a week :( I wish someone had told be long ago that I could take ZANTAC!!!! I still suffer from reflux but the Zantac helps a little more than the tums and I only have to take 2 a day. Good luck!
