Weegy: When someone is affected by stomach problems such as bloating, heartburn, gas, and indigestion, the assumption is to take an antacid or other similar over-the-counter remedies to reduce the stomach acid. [ However, the problem may be just the opposite: there’s not enough stomach acid. Taking an antacid will actually make the problem worse by further reducing the already depleted amount of stomach acid. ]
