Correct

- Calcium carbonate

- Morphine

- Levetiracetam

- Metoclopramide

Antacids should be given 1 hour after other meds, as they may impair absorbtion. Calcium carbonate (Tums) is an antacid. Pain meds, antiepilepetics, and prokinetic agents do not impair absorption and can be given concurrently as other meds
