Thank You For Your Thorough Response. My Gastritis Is Feeling

default
Posted on Thu, 23 Jun 2022
Question: Thank you for your thorough response. My gastritis is feeling much better after 10 days with 2 40 mg nexium daily
1) Rainitide is zantac and it is back. Is it basically same as pepcid. So taking pepcid is equally good as Zantac ? ( After scaling down step wise from Nexium).
2)Zinc Carsine is a prescription drug approved in Japan and south korea for ulcers for 20 years. There are some studies showing its efficacy because it increases mucus on the stomach lining. What I am thinking is once my gastritis is completely healed, I can take this every day or every other day. Then once a week when I have 2 drinks, I can have 40 mg Nexium or 40 mg pepcid just before the drinks. See if it prevents a recurrence. What do you think.
Thank you so much for your patience and advice.
