Hello Good Evening,

According to your symptoms you might be suffered from Gastric or duodenal ulcers which cause pain to you after having food because there is physiological more release of acid for the digestion of food.
After Endoscopy most probably you have diagnosed as Gastritis with GERD (Gastro esophageal reflux disease), for that you have prescribed Neopride Total, which actually contain Rabeprazole+ Levosulpiride.
This should be taken empty stomach in the morning to decrease acid secretion and cause beneficial effect in Gastritis and GERD.

Regards.
