Esophageal and stomach ulcers, chronic condition. Using reglan, no improvement. Treatment options?

My niece is suffering from esophageal and stomach ulcers . She has been trated for 4 months now, and seems to be no better. Her problems started when her primary care dr left her on reglan for 9 weeks trying to clear up stomach ulcers.. She is getting no better, and continues to lose weight, She is 32 yrs old, and otherwise healthy. She has been to different doctors, and no one seems to know why she is not healing.

Non healing ulcers with loss of weight creates enough doubts.
You should consult a Gastroenterologist and get endoscopy along with CT abdomen done to look for additional evidences for any other intra abdominal pathologies.
By the way you can't treat ulcers with just REGLAN only.
