Let me just say these are just as effective as the regular tums but they have a better taste. I've been bloated for ever a week now and when I took 2 tums ... Within 10 minutes I started feeling relieved. I use other things for bloating but I think I will just stick with tums because of its effectiveness. It is more than easy to use. Just take 1-2 tablets and chew them up. That's as easy as it gets. It's better than pills to me.
