A.
Sure. Gas-X is the brand name for a medication called simethicone. Its primary purpose is to treat gas in the alimentary canal (stomach and intestines). Tums is a brand name of calcium carbonate chewable tablets. Calcium carbonate is used to treat excessive acid in the stomach.

You shouldn't run into any problems using both of them at the same time. However, don't do this over the long term. If you're having chronic issues with pain and bloating, see your doctor.

Best wishes to you!
