Prescribed lanzol to recover from pre-ulcer, gastric problem. Reoccurs on stopping medication. Should I continue?

hi, I was prescribed lanzol capsules to recover from pre- ulcer stage and was asked to continue whenever I had gastric problems and acidity symptoms. The problems keeps recurring whenever I stop taking the capsule for more than a week and sometimes after a month. What should I do? Is it safe to continue Lanzol 30mg capsules? Please advise.

Thank you for the query.

I assume that the upper GI endoscopy has been performed with Helicobacter Pylori test and it was negative.
Some people can have acid reflux symptoms for the rest of the life and just need to deal with it. And the advantages from taking Lanzol permanently are more important than potential side effects. That is why you should continue Lanzol if it helps with your symptoms. You should also avoid coffee, fatty foods, fruit juices, soft drinks, chocolate. Drink more mineral water. Last meal should be 2 hours before sleeping.

Hope this will help.
