Peptic ulcer: Even though we use effective medications in the treatment of peptic ulcers like nexium or zantac, I still recommend avoiding spicey foods, alcohol,nicotine and excessive caffeine intake and prohibit the use of antiinflammatory medications like aspirin,Advil,and aleve. Corticosteroids to be used cautiously and only if necessary.
