i take tums for my D.. when i started out, i needed to take a couple in the morning, and a couple at night.. after awhile, i got by with 1-2 in the morning.. i take at least 1 at the end of my day now and it really helps.. you might have to play around with the timing.. but consistancy seems to help me!
I'm taking 2 extra strength tums every day to help with PMS symptoms, which I have as well as mild IBS. I do find them binding (after all they are chalky - like eating chunks of limestone!). I actually have to take a fibre laxative each day to counteract this binding effect. But it is perfectly safe to take them every day for whatever reason. There is more info on the tums website.
