Antacids

Suffering from heartburn or indigestion? Acid reflux flaring up? Tired of feeling like you’re breathing flames each time you talk? Consider taking an antacid, a medicine that neutralizes the acid in your stomach to help relieve heartburn and indigestion. Antacids are over-the-counter medications, which means you don’t need a prescription to buy them.

Shop for antacids on Simply Medical and enjoy quick delivery to your front door.

What is Indigestion?
Indigestion is defined as discomfort or burning pain in the stomach, chest, or throat associated with the digestion of food. It’s caused by the regurgitation of acid into the esophagus. Heartburn is a form of indigestion that is concentrated in the upper and mid-chest area.

What are the Main Symptoms?
  • Sour taste in mouth
  • Burning sensation in stomach, chest, or throat

  • Less common symptoms include:

  • Bloating and feeling ill
  • Hoarse voice
  • Recurring cough or hiccups
How Common is Indigestion?
Indigestion is very common. It affects an estimated 1 in 4 people in the United States yearly.

What Triggers Indigestion?
  • Spicy and acidic foods and drinks, like tomatoes, coffee, chocolate, alcohol, citrus products, peppermint, and more
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Pregnancy
  • Hormonal changes
  • Smoking
  • Being overweight or obese
What are my Antacid Options?
There are several types of antacids to choose from to counteract the effects of heartburn and indigestion.

Antacid Tablets
Antacid tablets are easy to use and take. Some antacid tablets are specifically designed for frequent heartburn and include multiple week-long courses of treatment. Be sure to read instructions before taking the tablets, as some of them are not intended for immediate relief of heartburn—instead, the drugs take 1 to 4 days for the full effect.

Antacid Chewables
Experience fast-acting relief from heartburn and indigestion symptoms with chewable tablets. Some chewables are fortified with calcium so you’re getting supplemental support as well as acid relief.

Antacid Liquids
When taken as directed, antacids are not harmful. If you are on prescriptions or have specific concerns, talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking an antacid.
