Hi Neerja,
Thanks for writing your query.

Gastritis result due to increased acid secretion in the stomach. It can result in faulty lifestyle and dietary habbits.

You should follow some precautions like :-
1. Avoid spicy/oily foods.
2. Avoid mental/emotional stress.
3. Donot miss a meal.
4. Avoid cigarette/alcohol.
5. Donot self medicate especially with pain killers and steroids.

Try to take adequate rest. If you are doing night shifts, you should try to take 6-8 hours sleep in your day time.

You can take antacid like Omeprazole 20 mg along with Domperidone 10 mg once a day in morning.
Taking antacid in gel form is also beneficial as it forms a protective layer over the damaged mucosa in the stomach. You should take medicines under medical supervision only.

I hope this is helpful to you.
