Uses
This is an antacid that works in the stomach to neutralize and reduce acid.

How To Use
  • Take Antacid Ex-Strength as prescribed.

  • To be effective, chewable tablets must be chewed thoroughly before swallowing followed by a full glass of water.
  • Shake liquid forms well before pouring each dose.
  • Do not take any other medication within 1 to 2 hours of taking an antacid.
  • Since antacids coat the stomach, they can prevent other drugs from being absorbed properly if taken at the same time.

  • If these symptoms persist or become severe, notify your doctor.
  • Notify your doctor if you notice black, tarry stools while taking Antacid Ex-Strength.

Precautions
  • Tell your doctor your medical history, especially of: kidney problems.
