How antacids work

Antacids are made up of basic salts, which work to neutralise the acid in your stomach that cause reflux symptoms. They provide fast relief for reflux symptoms that occur occasionally or last for less than 7 consecutive days. For symptoms that last longer, you should speak with a clinician to rule out any underlying conditions that may be the cause.
