Anyone know where we can find these?

They are small, aspirin-sized antacid tablets that used to be readily available in Hannaford's pharmacy, but no more. Nor does Rite Aid or CVS carry them locally. I looked on line and they said Walgreen's might be a source, but the local one says no dice there, either.

Anyone suggest a source?

We like them better than Tums or Rolaids because they are smaller and easier to chew or swallow.

Apparently you can also buy them directly from 3M, but again, you have to buy them online.

I found them on Amazon but they are ridiculously expensive at $45.00 for 100 tabs.
Also found a listing on EBAY for more money. I remember using Titralac
when I was pregnant with my first child nearly 40 years ago.
There's much better stuff on the market today.

I snooped around--I remember my mother swearing by Titralac back in the late 60s until she died in 1991.

Unfortunately, 3M discontinued manufacturing Titralac Oct. 12, 2012 (or that's when they announced it). People were pretty upset on the 3M facebook site (there is a customer service number there, not sure if that would allow someone to buy the stock from the company).

Since it's not being made, sellers of leftover stock are charging an average of $0.45 a pill. I haven't seen anything under $45 or so for 100.

People writing reviews on Amazon all say it's hard to impossible to find in stores.

Sad...this was good stuff. But it may be that diligent searching can find other fans on message boards discussing what is the closest replacement out there.

Titralac contains calcium carbonate. How about trying Pepcid which
contains calcium carbonate. Worth a shot.

OMG... from about $5-6 for a bottle of 100 to $.45/tablet? No way.

I guess we'll have to change to something else.

Thanks!
