Tums and other Antacids - Best for your Acid Reflux/GERD or not? Part 1
Lecture 1 of 3 Antacids are one of the oldest and most common drug classes for Acid reflux, Heartburn and GERD, but are not without side effects. Dr. Waks explains the basics of Antacids, what they are made of, how they work, and how they treat acid reflux. Antacids are great if you know the cause of your heartburn or acid reflux and unlike proton pump inhibitors (aciphex, prilosec, nexium, protonix) they don't permanently block the production of Hydrochloric acid. Here what some common antacids are made of: Aluminum containing antacids: Equate, Maalox, Mylanta, Gelusil. Calcium containing antacids: Andrews Antacid, Equate, Pepto-Bismol, Rennie (tablets), Rolaids, Tums, Gaviscon. Magnesium containing antacids: Maalox (liquid), Milk of Magnesia, Mylanta, Gelusil, Equate, Rennie (tablets), Rolaids.

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD): Management During Pregnancy
When gastroesophageal reflux disease develops during pregnancy, a presumptive diagnosis can be made based on symptoms. Further investigation with an upper endoscopy is not recommended unless the patient is refractory to medical therapy or a complication is suspected. But in most cases, relief of symptoms is achieved, and the reflux resolves spontaneously following delivery. The first strep in treating reflux during pregnancy involves lifestyle modifications. Recommendations are the same as for the non-pregnant patient (e.g., such as not eating within 3 hours of recumbency, and raising the head of the bed), but I will add that abstinence from alcohol and smoking should be particularly re-enforced. Lifestyle modifications provide sufficient relief in most women, but when symptoms remain, then antacids are recommended. Antacids containing calcium may provide additional benefit in preventing hypertension and pre-eclampsia, while antacids containing sodium bicarbonate or magnesium trisilicate should be avoided. When symptoms persist, then sucralfate is the next therapy recommended. It is poorly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and has not been shown to cause any teratogenicity. However, it has a short duration of action and limited efficacy. The next step beyond lifestyle modifications and the non-absorbable medications are Histamine2 receptor antagonists. Ranitidine, in particular, has proven efficacy in pregnancy, and has not been associated with an increase in congenital malformations or any other negative effects in pregnancy. Finally, we have the proton pump inhibitors. These are the most effective medications for gastroesophageal reflux and although there is less evidence than for the other medications, they are considered safe during pregnancy.
