Brief Answer: Yes you can give Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for writing to health care magic. You can give sucrafil and lanzol at the current dose. It should be safe. Continue for a week or so to see improvement if the pain is due to gastritis. However because it's been there for 7 months I would like to suggest ultrasound abdomen, stool and urine routine and deworming her if not done already Regards Dr Arun
