i need answers

i am 17 years old and i have a stomach ulcer, my doctor gave me these stupid pills called omeprazole that are ment to take it away, but it hasnt worked so it looks like ill be taking these every day for the rest of my life(not to mention they dont always keep the symptoms at bay), and honestly, i dont want to live the rest of my life like that, ive lost the will to live, its not like i want to die, but id rather die than live like this

i dont want to suffer like this for the rest of my life(and if i were to die an old man ive got a good 60 years left in me) what should i do?

Re: i need answers

That medication is normally not given for ulcers unless given with antibiotics for h pilori.
It's just Prilosec which is given for GERD and other gastric issues. Perhaps you should get your folks to take you to another doctor.

Make sure you are taking your Omeprazole 20 minutes before you eat or the pill is useless.
