Stomach Acid Meds...
« on: September 25, 2019, 06:31:15 am »
Pharmacist at clinic tells me to never take over the counter stomach acid pills with my ARV pills and to wait at least 6 hours. I am on Descoy and Tiivicay.

I know this includes stomach acid meds like Galveston, Rennie due to some indgredient   in them (which slips my mind).

Does anyone know what stomach acid meds we can take with Descoy & Tivicay?

Feel damn acidy today and still 4 hours to wait before I can have Galveston.

for minor stomach distress. I have used over the years ovaltine . it is not a medicine it is a milk flavoring that sits well when at least for me i get a medicine belly ache . but hey you have plenty of time to find your own relief.  acid stomach and medicine not fun at all. bread helps somewhat .    I hope these ideas help you find some relief.

this is over the years what has worked for me .
