I don’t know why my doctor would not allow me to take anything. He said he did not like pregnant women taking anything other than over-the-counter medications. I even asked to take Prilosec and he said no.
Your friend should most certainly ask her doctor. Each doctor is different and they all have different opinions on what we can and cannot do or can and cannot take. My best friend is pregnant right now and she is going through the same thing. Her doctor won’t let her take anything but Tums. Tums made me sick when I took them. The consistency of the tablet made me want to puke. I hear they are better now. My friend said they are like a Sweet-Tart candy.
I still get heartburn now and it has been a while since I have been pregnant. I now take Pepcid Complete. She should ask her doctor about that one too. It is the best one on the market if you ask me. Maybe she will get lucky and her doctor will say it is no big deal. I remember a friend of mine was pregnant the same time I was and she was taking something stronger than I was. I asked my doctor and he told me that if I took it I could switch to her doctor.

I don't know if they've changed Tums or not; I'm pretty sure it's just chewable calcium, though. For some people, it will work great, but not so much for others. It never did a whole lot for me, either. I pretty much just had to 'grin and bear it'.
