14 days: I cannot see you age or history based on your question alone. Zantac is inferior, in my view, to proton pump inhibitors in treating the cause and symptoms of gastritis. I assume the diagnosis was made by gastroscopy. Uncomplicated gastritis usually settles, in my experience, within 2 weeks of taking adequate PPI dose daily. Again I assume no H. Pylori etc. Perhaps change treatment?
