Simply so, how many mg of Tums can I take?
The Tums label advises taking only a few in one sitting, not exceeding 7,500 milligrams, which depending on the dosage (it comes in 500, 750, and 1,000 mg doses) can range anywhere from 7 to 15 tablets.
Similarly, can too many Tums hurt you? Serious side effects can happen with an overdose or overuse of antacids. Side effects include constipation, diarrhea, change in the color of bowel movements, and stomach cramps. Products containing calcium may cause kidney stones and are more likely to cause constipation.
In this way, how many extra strength Tums can I take?
Antacids may interact with certain prescription drugs. When using this product: Do not take more than 10 tablets in 24 hours. If pregnant, do not take more than 6 tablets in 24 hours. Do not use the maximum dosage for more than 2 weeks except under the advice and supervision of a doctor.
