when u say its acidity and when i, as a doctor, say its gastritis. thats a life-style problem, u will be relieved till u r not de-stressed, relaxed, exercise, take proper diet at proper time, take good early sleep, walk after food both times, u will stay well without drugs. acidity is a symptom , not a disease , the disease is abnormal life-style. i dont know about ur daily routine but i m sure that the above things i suggested might be missing from ur schedule. take a break , change , try to live a drug free life. for this problem take drugs a last resort because u r not treating the root(disease) but just a symptom that is going ot recur.

Both are same. due to increased acidity you are facing gastritis. Continue the tablet if it is giving releif.
