Acid Indigestion

Overview

What is Acid Indigestion?

Like heartburn, acid indigestion can cause burning and pain in the upper abdomen. And like heartburn, when it occurs on a regular basis, it can interfere with your enjoyment of life.

Rolaids® provides rapid relief for acid indigestion, so you can get back to eating the foods you love and enjoying the good times without feeling the discomfort or the burn.

Symptoms

Acid Indigestion Symptoms

Indigestion is not the same as heartburn, even though excess stomach acid causes both. Indigestion is the discomfort in your stomach, while heartburn is a bit higher in your esophagus.

 

Indigestion after a meal is a painful situation, and can include bloating, nausea, queasiness, and a feeling of fullness. What do you do? What else? Kick acid, with Rolaids®!

Symptoms

Understanding Indigestion

Indigestion and heartburn are both caused by problems with stomach acid, and they both hurt. Fortunately, they’re both relieved fast by Rolaids®.

The two active ingredients in Rolaids®, Calcium carbonate and Magnesium hydroxide, deliver effective, rapid relief for both of these conditions. One minute your stomach feels bloated and queasy, then Rolaids® goes to work and your painful symptoms start to ease. You’ll be glad it works so fast.

Sometimes acid indigestion can be the sign of a more serious condition. Speak to your healthcare professional if you experience:

03
Weight loss or loss of appetite
04

Sometimes a favorite food you eat never causes a problem. But if you eat too much of a good thing you can get indigestion when your stomach has to produce extra acid to digest the extra quantity of food.

Lifestyle Tips

Rolaids® help keep your lifestyle from ruining your lifestyle. It’s always great to know you can kick acid fast if you have to. But even though we love selling as many Rolaids® as possible, we also love seeing people make smart decisions that lead to getting less indigestion in the first place.

Below are a few suggestions that can help give you less acid for us to kick.

01
Eat smaller, more frequent meals, so your stomach doesn't get too full.
02
Wear loose-fitting clothes. Sure you look great in those tight jeans, but your stomach has less room for all the food.
03
If you're on a prescription medication that is causing indigestion, speak to your healthcare professional about other options.
04
Avoid stressful situations right after eating.
05
Get plenty of rest. It will reduce the stress and fatigue that can make indigestion worse.
06
Try to limit the foods and beverages that worsen symptoms.
07
Don't smoke or drink alcohol.
08
Excess weight can sometimes make symptoms worse. So if you are overweight, try to lose weight with a safe weight loss program your healthcare professional recommends.
