Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Antacids and omeprazole are indeed two drugs whose main function is to treat stomach problems. For antacids, this is actually nothing but the main ingredient of the two drugs you mentioned, so your mother has been taking antacids.


For omeprazole, this can indeed be used, but this is a strong drug and its use must be under the supervision of a doctor. So to get it, ideally there must be a prescription from a doctor. Even if there is a place to sell drugs that can be given without a doctor's prescription, the decision is actually not right.


After all, this is not necessarily what your mother needs. It could actually be he experienced other medical conditions that are similar to stomach acid pain, such as infection, inflammation of the intestine, inflammation of the bile, injury to the stomach or others that will not improve if only by giving omeprazole alone. In addition, say if he really has stomach acid disease, the role of the doctor is needed to explore why his complaints have not improved and often recur so far. Doctors need to find out what factors in their daily lives that trigger the recurrence, such as whether your mother is often late eating, often stressed, consumption of spicy, acidic, oily, coconut milk, frequent coffee consumption, overweight, or there are other factors that need handled further. So the concept of good handling not only relieves symptoms, but also overcomes the root of the problem.


Therefore, our advice is that you should consult your mother to a doctor in internal medicine, so that you can find out whether he was pure gastric acid disease or there are other diseases that aggravate his condition. And if it's just stomach disease, what triggers the recurrence. Meanwhile, continue to consume over-the-counter ulcer drugs (labeled green or blue) by still reading the rules of use listed, eating regularly, avoiding the triggers we mentioned, multiply the consumption of warm water, maintain ideal body weight, do not immediately lie down after eating and manage stress well. So, hopefully answering your question.
