In our medicine cabinet we have a variety of generic brand products. This is because Len's HMO send him free over the counter products, and they go for cheaper lines. This is why I am taking Welby Health Antacid Tablets. They compare them to the active ingredient in Tums-EX. The bottle looks identical. It has 96 extra strength chewable tablets for heartburn relief. I don't use them for that, because I have osteoporosis, and I take 5 extra strength antacid tablets a day, to give my bones the calcium that they need. I also take Fosamax each month to hopefully make bone. The flavor I have is assorted berries, and they are so much nicer than the other flavors. As you chew them, sometimes they are chalky, and make me cough, but I always have a glass of water, just in case. I don't use them for heartburn, probably because I take so many of them, that I never get it. These tablets contain 250 mg. of calcium carbonate, and are for relieving sour stomach, heartburn, and acid indigestion. The directions suggest that you chew 2 to 4 tablets as needed. I prefer to chew on antacid tablets rather than swallow those big calcium tablets. Effectiveness They give me the added calcium I need. Ease of Use Just chew them as often as needed. They are a little chalky but fine if you drink water after. Immediacy I take them long term as a calcium supplement.
