    Good morning , Im not 100% sure on that ... how ever , as ive been on these for over 10 years ill give you some advice :-)

    Dont take them in the morning , dont take them on an empty tummy , I take at night an hour or so after dinner , I found that if it makes you get gassey etc on an emty tummy , & if you get tired during the day , then before bed time is great :-)

      Ha ha nah i will never forget what my life was life ( some very dark times and bad thoughts )

      My advice is start slow , eat alkaline foods when you have heart burn etc , but take the tabs before bed , But If you go out drinking hard out I skip the tabs till the next days meal though ( as that my cause reflux & or heart burn) ?? :-)
