It is also important that you do not take any antacid or acid suppression therapy for at least 30 days prior to any repeat testing. ...Read more

Could long term use of prilosec (3yrs) be the cause of erosive gastritis? due to not having enough acid vs. to much & therefore also cause gastritis.

It is possible that a behavior,e.g. nonsteroidals, smoking, alcohol may have been continued, in spite of being on Prilosec - which was the risk factor. Prilosec, a proton pump inhibitor, is used to treat erosive gastritis, albeit at higher doses. ...Read more
