First, he should abstain from any alcohol. If available, he should take an acid suppressing medication such as Famotidine (Pepcid) or Omeprazole (Prilosec) daily as a trial for one week. If pain goes away, he should continue to use it for 2 months so it can heal either gastritis or peptic ulcer. However, this remedy cannot eradicate Pylori related peptic ulcer disease.
