Hi Juanita E. Bermas

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
These drugs are useful in treating dyspepsia.When there excess production of acid in your stomach , it leads symptoms like belching , burning sensation , food habit changes.These drugs when taken before food , reduce the excessive production of acid and decrease the movement of bowels.This way , the symptoms are reduced and also the damaging effects of acid on stomach wall.
You are receiving appropriate treatment and I advise you to go ahead with the regimen.
Hope I answered your question , If you need more information feel free to mail me.
Take care
