default
Posted on Tue, 18 Jul 2017 in Digestion and Bowels
Question: When I opened my account I asked and received excellent advice. I when an ulcer as traveling out of state w/ my husband searching for a retirement home when my ulcer started to 'act up'. At this time I'm only prescribed omeprazole. I was told to add an antianxiety med and something for acid reflux. (I thought the omeprazole was for acid reflux.) Anyway, I can't locate the previous conversations I had had and would like to know what meds the other doctor had suggested. Can you help me?
