H2 blockers like Zantac (ranitidine)/Pepcid (famotidine) at double dose are less effective, & protect only the duodenum, not the stomach.

Upper left stomach pain I have GERD ulcer and hernia.  Taking nexium (esomeprazole)?

You need to be seen quickly if signs of bleeding: black stools/ vomiting 'coffee grounds'. ...Read more
