Suggest treatment for gastritis
User rating for this question
Hello Doctor, I am 30-year-old male with gastritis. Even after a lot of courses from different GI specialists my pain still persists now and then. Now a days, whenever I severe pain in the epigastric region, I take Myospaz (prescribed previously by my doc) in the night and it relieves my pain by the morning, but I would like to know how often can i do that or is Myospaz can be taken for gastritis ? Hoping for your response...XXXX

Brief Answer: It's not the treatment of gastritis Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. Myospaz is a muscle relaxant. It is not meant for treating gastritis. Yes if you have irritable bowel syndrome, where there may be alternating diarrhoea and constipation with spasmodic abdominal pain which use to relieve on passing stool, you may benefit ot some extent... If you have solely gastritis, I don't think this is needed. Best wishes

Hello Doctor, Thank you for this useful information. As I have already told you, I have tried many different medications through different providers and my problem (gastritis) still persists and I am tired of taking anymore medications daily twice or thrice, I would like to know about a healthy diet for my gastritis and clear up my gastritis.
