Dear Tricia,some drugs can cause heaviness due to gastric irritation.Try to take them with food or after food.In most of the cases this will solve your problem,even if you have problem you can take antacid any time irrespective of the medication.Do not take too much of milk as at times after couple of hours even milk can induce the problem in some patients.ok buy.

Hi tricia;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
You can take the medicines after good meals .
If you have heaviness you can take 1 glass of cold milk.
If you take the medicines say about an hour after food then better take it with 1 glass of milk.
If you don't want or don't like milk then you can take a antacid like ranitidine-300mg twice a day with medicines.
(cold milk itself is used as antacid)
Hope that answers your question.
