Thanks for the query to H.CM. Forum.
Antacid as name indicates that it increases the level of alkalies in stomach ( acid production decreases ).
High acidity means amount of acid increases in stomach due to sweets, fried food , tension.
While antacid increases level of alkalies in stomach .
Once you take antacid alkalies increase and this causes palpitation in your body.
When you take sweets it causes acidity and you get relief .
Normal acid present in stomach and this helps in digestion of food in body.
So antacid and sweets both are not good for health.
Good luck.
