What next?

I have been suffering with gastritis since September. I was diagnosed with it by an upper endoscopy a week ago. My treatment is Nexium 40 twice a day and Carafate 4 times a day. It is not helping me at all! I have tried everything, tums, rolaids, prilosec, etc. I am in misery. Help!!

Re: What next?

I have found that PPIs don't help me with gastitis either but Mastica does!

Take 2 --500mg caps twice daily between meals and a probiotic supplement like PB-8 for 2 weeks-to a month and it helps me.
