Brief Answer:
Nexium

Detailed Answer:
Hi there,
Thanks for posting in HCM.
I am Dr.Barani and I am pleased to assist you.

If it is just gastritis, you should have found relief with famotidine. But since there is only partial relief, you can switch to NEXIUM once daily before breakfast.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Brief Answer:
Nexium for 4 weeks

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
You have to take Nexium for 4 weeks.

You have mentioned you are supposed to have your menstrual period on November 23rd. So if you have had an intercourse without protection two weeks ago and if you dont get period then there are chances you are pregnanct.
You can get blood pregnancy test now or urine pregnancy test two weeks after the missed period.

Brief Answer:
Answer given below

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
The pressure in the upper abdomen could be due to gas.
Once you start to take medications, you may start to feel better in 4-5 days. But for complete relief, you need to complete the course of 4 weeks of medications.
