  • I was told Rolaids were NOT an okay thing in pregnancy - that Tums were the only pregnancy-safe antacid. You need to talk to your OB.

  • I was told to take Tums. I don't know if there is a difference in rolaids and tums or not.

  • I was also told not to take rolaids. I took so many Tums and ended up getting a kidney infection :( I had to switch to Prilosec (prescribed) and that was the only thing that helped me!
