Halacha - pesach - vitamins
Submitted by B  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

No. One cannot rely on the pharmacy to tell you that there is no chometz in the vitamins and while it is important to take prenatal vitamins, but most of the nutrients can be recieved from diet and missing one week of suplements will not harm the mother or baby in any way. Also, today there are many vitamins with a hechsher, and I would assume it is possible to find even Kosher for Pesach.

Regarding Tums; you would have to check if it has a reliable hechsher for Pesach, and if not it should not be taken.
