Gastritis: Both those agents may be helpful in the treatment of antral gastritis, but I regard ppi's the most effective. These include prilosec,nexium, protonix. I feel that one prilosec a day isn't sufficient to heal many cases of gastritis or peptic ulcer. A gastroenterologist can advise you best.
