Yes indeed: Take an antacid regularly (not only for pain or other symptoms). Also, probably acid blocking medications are available in pharmacies, probably without prescription (cimetidine, omeprazole, and several others). A druggist can help choose the best one. Also avoid alcohol entirely and any foods that trigger pain or other symptoms. You should confirm this advice with doctor who diagnosed the ulcer.

Depends: 1) remove the cause for the ulcer (bacteria, medication such as aspirin/motrin, etc.), your doctor can help you figure it out. 2) allow ulcer to heal more quickly by acid blocking medications.
