Long term usage of the antacids cause decreased acid secretion or cause disturbance in the digestive enzyme
release.Hence when planning to stop the medications it has to be done in a tapering fashion.
A daily dosage can be stopped by reducing it to alternate day and finally stopping it after 15 days.This will ensure your normal acid out put takes the function of digestion.
Wish you good health.
