PPI, H2B.: Proton pump inhibitors (prilosec, prevacid, etc), or h2 blockers (e.g. Zantac, (ranitidine) pepcid) usually do the trick. See your family physician to get checked for h. Pylori and determine if you need eradication therapy along with ppi.

Yes: But sparingly. Lortab does not contain ibuprofen, naproxen, or Aspirin that can aggravate stomach erosion and worsen ulcers.
