In brief: many options

Brand names of drugs in india are different than in the usa but i suspect rantac is ranitidine and pepsia is famotidine.
They are equivalent in potency. More potent drugs are omeprazole, Lansoprazole or esomeprazole. Mother should avoid nicotine, caffeine and aspirin; do not eat within 4 hours of lying down and elevate the head of the bed. Antacids can taken as well as needed.
