Hello doctor,

I have a stomach ulcer that is not caused by H. pylori, and it is not an NSAID ulcer as well. What can I do to completely get rid of this ulcer? I am taking Ranitidine for it. The ulcer has come and gone over the past two years roughly. The stomach ulcer was diagnosed by asking a series of questions and by touching my stomach area. I have anxiety and depression, so stress is likely the main cause, according to my physician, and I smoke marijuana. My current medication includes Ranitidine, Trintellix, Clonazepam, Tricera birth control, and Zopiclone. I am also taking multivitamins and probiotics, which are self-prescribed.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

First of all, from your history, it is not proven that you have an ulcer. It may just be underlying gastritis.

I suggest you-

1. You must avoid the precipitating factors like spicy, fried food, alcohol, marijuana, etc.

2. You must lead a stress-free life.

3. You mjust get an endoscopy done and revert with the endoscopy report.

The medicines like Ranitidine can be used for two to three days when you have severe symptoms. Avoid daily or prolonged use.

Thank you.
