Hi
Franxit tablets are used for Depression,psychosis.
They are not prescribed for hiatal hernia.
I saw your endoscopy report.IT showed only small hiatal hernia
You can use Rabeprazole tablet .
If there is no response,surgery has to be done.
Wish you good health

Thankyou for the response Dr. XXXXXXX XXXXXXX

I was prescribed NEOPRIDE Total (1 each for 20 days) along with MEVA-C(2 each for 15 days) during initial consultation. As the pain didn't subside, I was prescribed Rabonik-plus(1 each for 30 days). It still did not help and upon further consultation diagnosis was done and the cause was identified. Currently I'm prescribed Pantocid-L (1 each for 30 days) and Franxit(1 each for 20 days).

Please suggest If I should continue taking the current prescribed medicines or is there a need to consult elsewhere.

Thanks.

Hi
Rabeprazole and pantaprazole are of the same group of drugs.
Please continue Pantocid -L.
If you are worried too much and depressed,use Franxit.otherwise it is not necessary.
Avoid spicy foods,carbonated drinks,pain killers.
Use pantocid L for few months.
If there is no response,consult a surgical gastroenterologist.
Wish you good health
