Brief Answer: Detailed below. Detailed Answer: Hello! Thank you for the query. How was your gastritis diagnosed? Was there gastroscopy done? Librax is not a typical medicine for gastritis. And is not as effective as typical PPIs (proton pump inhibitors). PPIs also cause less side effects and are well tolerable. So instead of Librax, I suggest you to consider Omeprasole, Pantoprasole or other PPI treatment. Gastritis treatment should last a month and after a month gastroscopy should be done if the symptoms are still present. Here is what I suggest you to do: - if there was no gastroscopy, have it at first - if the gastroscopy was done, consult your doctor and consider Omeprasole treatment instead of Librax. Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions. Regards.
