Brief Answer:
Rest the gut

Detailed Answer:

Since you have already taken the required pills ( Rantac and Pantaprazole are good) you just need to wait. You should have taken Tab DIGENE for sooner relief as the above are effective but takes more time.

Rest the gut for at least 3 hours before you start taking small fluids. If it does not clear in 3 hours you better visit a doctor near by.

Hope this answers.
