Asking on behalf of a friend who is pregnant with twins and suffering heartburn. Can she take the usual heartburn medication - Rennies, gaviscon etc? Or not? Thanks.

Gaviscon is fine - it explicitly says on the label it's ok in pregnancy.

I only resorted to it after I figured more than a tub of Haagen-Dazs might not be a great medicinal dose of soothing creaminess...

yes, gaviscon. I used to get through gallons, but she can get it on prescription and hence, for free.

I would like to add rennie soft chews to the list. They are portable palatable and are really good. Great for people like me as gaviscon makes me wretch.
