1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Lots of medications are available the most effective of which are the ppis (prilosec, prevacid, protonix, nexium, aciphex, (rabeprazole) dexilant).
The 2 most common causes of peptic ulcers are infection with the helicobacter pylori bacteria and the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) drugs such as aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, meloxicam, etc.
