Otc Medication For Stomach Ulcers
Proton pump inhibitr: Proton pump inhibitors like omeprazole, nexium, (esomeprazole) prilosec, etc. Decrease acid production helping ulcers. They are over the counter now, but may be more expensive. Medications like pepcid, ranitidine, pepto bismol, and mylanta may help with symptoms, but they are not as strong in protecting the stomach from ulcers.
What's a good OTC medication for when you experience knife like pain in your stomach (not sure if it's from acid, inflammation, trapped gas)?
Take a couple of dee: Any medication that you take by mouth will take more than a few minutes before it can provide any relief of symptoms. So if your pain is knife like, it must be quite transient (lasting <1 minute). Such pains are common and most of us have them. But they disappear as fast as they come on...so do not to take them seriously as these are not related to any disease, simply take a couple of deep breaths.
I have a hx of abdominal cramping and I am out of bentyl (dicyclomine). Is there an otc medication I can get until I can get to my dr on Monday?
Yes: Most stomach ulcers can be cured medically taking pills, but you need to see a doctor to see if indeed you have the ulcer, and if you have, what caused the ulcer. Depending on the cause, the treatment may be different. Thus you need physician's evaluation and guidance for the treatment.
Acid blockers...: Ulcers are usually caused by either an infection with a bacterial called helicobacter pylori or NSAID drugs such eg. Aspirin, ibuprofen, motrin. Acid blockers eg. Pepcid, (famotidine) Prilosec are the drugs of choice for healing ulcers. If you have an infection with h. Pylori then antibiotics are indicated. Good luck!

What medicine?: Has a GI doctor looked into your stomach with a scope?
Each month I have a period I get horrible pain in my stomach like ulcer pain that gets worse by eating, drinking, or taking any type of medication.?
Stress: Please check your stresslevel during your periods. Do you take non-steroidal pain medicatons such as ibuprogen during your periods? These may cause stomach pains also please check and make sure you don't have ulcers.
I have consulted twice in the past two weeks and no improvement. The doctor said I have ulcers and gave me medication which isn't helping much. I have a burning sensation in my stomach now and then, and a pain behind my back.
Further tests: Suggest further tests to get a presise diagnosis. Maybe Gastroscopy
How long do stomach ulcers take to heal. On medication but still very sore pain in my stomach when I eat?
Depends.: It depends on many factors, including the initial size of the ulcer, what medicine you're taking to heal it, whether H pylori is present, and what caused the ulcer in the first place. In general, however, if you're not starting to see some relief within 7 to 10 days of starting medication for a proven ulcer, I would call your doctor back. Good luck.

You seriously need: Help. Do you want to die? What you are proposing is crazy (and this is coming from a shrink). Please get help. Alcoholics anonymous is free, confidential and a great source of support. At this point, would also encourage you to let your gastroenterologist know what you are doing. An addiction medicine specialist is also very important.
What is the best medication to treat gastric ulcer. My stomach produces much Gas and upper part of it got swollen up. Being using omeprazole?
Maybe not just ulcer: Feeling full of "gas" may reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks). Sometimes its more complicated--a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, &/or pathology outside the gut.
