Gastritis: Your symptoms may be from inflammation rather than the medications.You may need treatment for h pylori. I'm sure you'll be tested for this. Avoid alcohol, caffeine,nicotine, irritants like aspirin,ibuprofen,naproxen. Add liquid medications like mylanta or try carafate until your gastroscopy.
