How can I better manage gastritis due to being on 60mg prednisone for an extended time? I currently take 40mg protonix (pantoprazole) & 300mg ranitidine

In brief: Diet is key

Be sure to avoid alcohol and caffeine as well as tobacco.
Avoid all irritating foods like spicy or greasy items, and raw onion or garlic. Temporarily avoid acidic foods containing tomatoes and citrus foods. Also, I would avoid raw veggies and cold drinks/foods for the time being. Make sure you chew your food well. Small regular meals help, too.
