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

Prilosec OTC is gluten free.

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?

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?
