Hello;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The medicine your sister has been prescribed are Cimtiline is cemetidine used for acidity and cipocil (or just see if it is cipocil-tz) is probably an antibiotic to treat the gastritis .Please let her continue as advised by the doctor and if she does not get relief then consult the doctor again for follow up.
Thanks
