Hello doctor,

I was diagnosed with erosive pan gastritis through an endoscope in the stomach. I was an IBS patient as well. The medication given was Happi 20 mg morning and Lafaxid D, at bedtime for one month. Is it permanently curable? I was undergoing stress and depression and I went to a psychiatrist and he prescribed two medicines Sizodon MD 0.5 mg and Clonil 50 mg at bedtime. Kindly let me know whether these medicines increase my erosions and irritate my stomach. Is it safe to take these medicines with my problems? Kindly suggest.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Gastritis is easily treatable with proton pump inhibitors.
  • The medicines you are taking for psychiatric disorders may worsen your gastric issues. If there is no further worsening of symptoms, then you can continue with the same dose. If you have a worsening of gastric symptoms, then we need to increase the dose of Rabeprazole.
  • Another issue is IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). We need to start the management of IBS depending on the symptoms, that is, whether it is diarrhea or constipation predominant.
