I know Tums are not, but can someone suggest some OTC antacids?

Are they really not gluten-free? If you have read my previous post you know I am not 100% sure I have a gluten problem, but when I read this I just about fell over......

Every time I went to the doctor with my symptoms they would ask "have you tried tums" and I would always say "yes, but I swear it makes it worse" and then they would look at me like I was nuts.

If Tums really do have Gluten in them I am feeling more confident by the minute!!!!! Thank you for posting this!!!

Nope, sure aren't gluten-free. What a real shame. I wonder if the store brands are gluten-free?

Does TUMS® contain gluten?

Although we do not use gluten as a filler in TUMS®, there may be trace amounts of gluten in the tablets via ingredients that are supplied by outside vendors.

I took this from their webite. It really ticks me off when companies cannot figure out what is in their product. However, on a website that lists gluten-free drugs it said that regular tums were gluten-free but smoothies were not.

Pepto Bismal liquid is gluten-free and works for me with just one dose when I get glutened. For my tummy nothing works better not even the script stuff.

How about the tablets? I should make sure I have liquid on hand just in case.

I eat 5 regular Tums every day for calcium. They're on a list of gluten free OTC medications. I never take the Smoothies. Am I okay with the regular ones?

I'm not taking any type of Tums anymore. I'll just have to get the calcium somewhere else. My tummy has been out of sorts all day. I took Tums 10 minutes ago, and I am totally filling up with gas. Don't light a match in here. :(
