Brief Answer:
Medicine for constipation & gastric problem .

Detailed Answer:
As you mentioned in the query that you are taking some AYURVEDIC drugs for allergy and this is the main reason of constipation ( motion is not passing everyday according to you ).
You are also having gastric problem .
These measures may be useful for you , these include.
This is for gastric problem.
Try raising the head of your bed about 4 inches with blocks.It also might help to avoid eating or drinking for 2-3 hours before you lie down. To help control stomach acid ( gastric problem ) one should not drink alcohol or drinks with caffeine in them or eat chocolates or spicy or greasy foods . Also take some antacid but if symptoms ( gastric problem ) are severe you may need drugs like PANTALOC-D once or twice in day according to severity of symptoms and condition of disease .
Avoid over eating .
Tension and anxiety are other factors responsible for gastric problem .
Now for MOTION ( CONSTIPATION ) if possible reduce the dosage of ayurvedic drugs .
When patients with constipation visit my clinic ( chronic case ) I advise my patient to take phenolphathaline tablet ( chewable ) one or two according to nature of constipation ( even few persons responds to 1/2 tablet) .
You can also take tablet BISACODYL one or two , if don't like above mentioned tablet because of chewable nature.
High fiber diet also help in constipation.
Hope this will be helpful for you.
If further any question I will reply in follow up.
Good luck.

I have been diagnosed with an Ulcer right at the bottom of my stomach into the intestine. I am taking sucralfate 1 gram tablets, This morning I woke up and the pain was horrible. I took Mylanta which I ended up taking the whole bottle in a 4 hour period and the pain still wont subside. I have drank some chicken broth and had jello the pain still wont go away. I just consumed a whole roll of tums and the pain still wont go away. 15 min prior to the tums I tried baking soda and water mixture but no help there. Im now drinking chamomile tea and to yet no relief I honestly feel like my stomach is being ripped apart. What should I do every time I go to the hospital and complain of pain like this they assume I just want pain meds. and I dont I have seen 3 different gastroenterologists and no one seems to want to help. Im lost and in a lot of pain.

I've had heartburn for as long as I can remember. I took prescription medication for awhile but it made me sick. I used to take anywhere from 5-15 TUMS in a day to keep the heartburn at bay. For the last two weeks I have had no heartburn. I haven't changed anything about my lifestyle or eating habits. It's just gone. Is there something more serious happening, or was I just so lucky to have grown out of it? Is this a common occurrence or should I contact my family doctor?
Thank you,
