Hi I had a virus, with vomiting and some diarrhoea and I had fainted also. This appeared to clear up and I consumed a lot of alcohol on New Year's Eve. The next day, I felt terrible, I vomited, almost passed out, had sweats and could not move. My stomach since then has been incredibly sore. I spoke with my doctor who confirmed it couldn't be gatritis and prescribed me with ppi's. will this work? How long should I expect this to have effect if I took my first two tablets 11 hours ago this morning. I'm unsure what food I should be eating - I'm drinking lucozade but unsure whether I should be drinking this?
