Once I had couple of large beers. After that I've got acidity. So Is it OK to take antacid tablet after drinking beer?
It depends... I don't see an issue with the standard Tums or Rolaids but there might be issues with ranitidine according to some studies.
"The effect was striking," says author Charles Lieber, MD. In a three-hour test period, conducted under conditions similar to social drinking, the study showed that ranitidine can increase blood alcohol content by 38%. Levels reached in the study exceeded the legal drinking limit -- and the effects lasted up to two hours after drinking stopped.

I've been prescribed Ranitidine and it says "AVOID ALCOHOL" in all caps, so you know it's important.
