Hi! I am a 31 year old woman. On Saturday
Probably a bleeding ulcer, follow the advice below.
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Blood in vomit is very common after drinking.
Some of the common causes are gastritis, a bleeding ulcer, and simple tears of the food pipes.
I recommend using medication to lower the acidity the stomach such as Omeprazole 20 mg daily in the morning before breakfast
I also recommend to drink liquids and avoid food that can trigger the symptoms such as spicy food or caffeinated drinks.
If the symptoms continue I suggest to do an endoscopy for further evaluation.
Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
You can take the medication for two weeks.
Hi again dear,
Thank you for your question.
You can continue this treatment for 7 to 14 days depending on your symptoms.
Most peptic ulcers without heal completely , regardless of the cause.
If the symptoms continue further examinations should be done.
Feel free to contact me again for further clarification.
