User:currently i am taking pantop 40. which stopped sour burps(khatti dakar). But still other problems are same
Doctor:But if you suffer from abdominal pain that looks similar to hyperacidity, you need to follow a stricter life style and diet.
User:what does it mean..stricter life style & diet
Doctor:Pantop can help provide temporary measures; however if symptoms don't improve it is ideal that you consult a gastroenterologist and get ultrasound / endoscopy done.
Doctor:Early morning exercise; high fibre diet; less spicy food; eating at regular intervals, dinner atleast an hour before dinner; sleeping at regular intervals and avoiding alcohol/smoking are must.
