    has anyone else been taking rennie for heartburn....

    i had been and then someone told me i shouldnt be and now i have panicked myself!!!

    it does say on the packet they can be used in pregnancy??

    have been sticking to gaviscon over the past couple of days but am now worried taking rennie over the last few weeks has been a bad move... :(

    If it says on pkt you can take it don't worry. A manufacturer will always air on the side of caution!!
    I'd heard they were safe too x x

    It mentioned on my 'what to expect when you're expecting' app something about rennies being your best friend so on that basis I'd assume they were safe!
