I got heartburn for the first time when I was pregnant with my son. I must say I thought I was having a heart attack. Heartburn is so painful and when I say in the title, "Thank Goodness For My Tums Calcium Plus!" I truly mean it. I am lucky in that I do not have to deal with heart burn on a daily basis, like some people that I know. So I have never had to take the daily medications. But every now again when I do get heart burn I just take two to four of the Tums and it is gone instantly. It was what my doctor recommended some twenty odd years ago the first time I got heart burn during my pregnancy. (Never take any medication during pregnancy without consulting your doctor!) and it is what I still take to this day. The only thing that has changed in all these years is that now I take the Tums Calcium Plus. That is because now I that I am an "old" lady the extra calcium is good for my bones. I would recommend Tums Calcium Plus to anyone who suffers from heart burn and has not tried it.
