  • tums ?

    would just taking one a day be helpful in anyway?

    50 mg macrobid
    1000 flax seed oil
    500 mg magnesium

    I can't say. But I can say Prelief has a lot less of the extra, added junk that is in Tums, like the dyes and artificial flavoring. Tums may even have preservatives and other things that can be harmful to an IC bladder. I suppose it is all circumstancial, based on your bladder, what you are eating, whether you have access to Prelief, etc. However, I know for me, Prelief is much better on my bladder than Tums. Sorry, that isn't the best answer, but I hope that helps! Best wishes.
