I had my first dose of AC this week and have terrible indigestion. Any advice on what is safe to take? Tums aren't helping.

    Yup I went with nexium too - twice a day. Zantac worked but not as well. Gaviscon good back up as much more effective than tums and safe. Nexium protects your esophagus. Other strategies: sleep up on an angle from hip up (though I find it uncomfortable) drink beverages and water separate from meals so stomach not distended, small frequent meals. Fatty foods, coffee and acidic foods can make it worse. Don't lie down right after eating. Lie on left side..... Hmmm that's it for my memory.

    I got a prescription for Nexium from my oncologist. It has completely stopped all the discomfort. Before that I used Pepsid AC over the counter, which helped but not like the Nexium.
