Brief Answer:
Acid lowering medications...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Dyspepsia, gastritis and other acid peptic diseases are chronic conditions associated with life style and diet. So you have to keep your dietary habits and exercises to prevent symptoms from flaring up. So it is prudent that you avoid spices and extra oil food as they tend to aggravate the symptoms.

In the meanwhile you can take Cap pan D twice daily half an hour before food for 2-3 weeks. In addition you should also start physical exercise and keep weight in ideal limits.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.

Brief Answer:
Symptoms are improving is a positive sign...

Detailed Answer:
Unfortunately dyspepsia and bloating issues are strongly linked to life style and diet. It is good to know that you are feeling better though not to your expectations. I'd recommend you to continue medications for a week more along with the dietary measures suggested.

You should also consider exercise and weight management for additional benefits.

If you still don't feel better despite 2-3 weeks of medications you may report back to the doctor for changes to your treatment.

I assume the doctor has conducted a few basic investigations. The doctor may plan for an ultrasound scan and endoscopy if needed in future based on your response.

Don't be disappointed with your treatment response yet. You will eventually feel better with the combined efforts of medications, diet and exercise.

Wish you a faster recovery!
