Acetaminophen, ppi: The treatment entails taking a PPI such as Prilosec or similar and possibly Carafate to help the coat the ulcer and promote healing. For analgesia, otc Tylenol (acetaminophen) is a good choice.

Treat the cause: Peptic ulcer disease is mostly due to infection with a bacterium called h. pylori. If this is diagnosed, the pt should take antibiotics and medications such as H2 blockers and proton pump inhibitors. Pain meds are not the answer, though narcotics can help with the acute pain. NSAIDS such as aspirin, ibuprofen, ketorolac, can make the problem worse. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is acceptable.
