Suffering from hiatus hernia and mild antral gastritis. Having stomach pain and diarrhea. Prescribed antibiotics. Suggest

Hello Doctor, I am 47 years old, male. I have been suffering from hiatus hernia and mild antral gastritis with H. Pylori (RUT) Positive (Mildly) and without any ulcer for the last about 2 years and have been on medication. There had been serious stomachache and sensation for vomiting. I had my endoscopy done and also have completed the courses of Tavanic Tab 500 mg, Sacro 250 mg, Clarimin 500 mg, Neskium 40 mg and Cintapro-OD. Now I have been on Neskium 20 mg and Cintapro OD for last more than 6 months. My condition was somehow better because of this medication. . But now for the last three days, I am suffering from severe stomachache and diarrhea. I have shown myself to a local doctor who has diagnosed it as a stomach infection because of taking watermelon and has prescribed me antibiotics Ornoxin and tabs for pain and diarrhea . Is this treatment O.K. and has some nexus between the previous ailment as stated above. For how much time, I should take Neskium 40 mg and Cintapro-OD. What precautions should be taken as to diet. What further steps or treatment should I take. Please help..!!

Thanks for posting your query.
As per the available studies, you can take Neksium and cintrapro safely for about 5 years.
Whatever side effects has been defined, are confined to animal not in human beings.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist/ gastroenterologist and should go for thorough check up.
You should also go for complete blood count, blood sugar, serum electrolytes, and thyroid profile.
You should follow the mentioned changes:
1) Don't take tomatoes, and citrus fruits.
2) Avoid onion, garlic, excessive tea and coffee, chocolates,
3) Avoid oily and spicy food, non veg.
4) Take soft diet along with yogurt.
5) Keep difference of 3 hours between meals and sleep.
6) Avoid tight fitting clothes.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
