What kind of chemical substance is an antacid? What is one potential hazard of taking too many doses or too large a dose of an antacid?
Have you never taken the popular, commercial antacid tablets?
These tablets, when you taste them, are quite chalky, and bitter. They are mostly
And sometimes you burp the carbon dioxide out (which of course you would not do in polite company).
And should you take too large a dose, you would make your stomach produce a lot of carbon dioxide.........and (maybe) gastric reflux would occur; i.e. the stomach acid bubbles up and burns your oesophagus. At moderate doses, of course, i.e. 2-3 tablets, an antacid would be benign.
