Dr. Scott J. Diede answered:

Which one is better for gastric ulcer, omeprazole or lansoprazole, in term of safety and efficiency?

Basically same...

Helicobacter_pylori
While you will hear anecdotal stories that one worked better for someone than the other drug, a number of randomized clinical trials (gold-standard for science) found that they were equivalent, both with respect to safety and efficacy. I would initially choose the one that is less expensive for you to obtain.

Can GERD cause palpitations? Also, if it is not the gerd causing the palps is it safe to take PPI's like omeprazole or lansoprazole with palps?

No

Palpitation
GERD does not cause arrhythmias but may cause unusual sensations in the chest. Taking a proton pump inhibitors such as omeprazole would not be likely to pose a significant risk. However without knowing the exact cause of palpitation, cannot comment specifically.

What is a good pill for gastritis I have tried omeprazole, dexilant and Prevacid they help but not enough HELP?

Diet

Gastritis
If medication are not enough you have to consider if the foods you are eating are making the problem worse. Common foods like coffee, tomato sauce, orange juice, etc. are acid and can make symptoms of gastritis or reflux worse.

I was on Prilosec otc 3 months before .can I repeat it after three months or should I change( like prevacid).

See your MD

Omeprazole
If you are having recurrent symptoms of stomach acid or reflux, you may need a prescription medication or a consultation with a specilist for testing of your GI tract. Barrett's esophagus, a precancerous condition, can occur form continued acid reflux.
