Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
How old are you?
When this switch was made?
Have you been tested for H.Pylori?
Thanks for the details
I would suggest that you should continue with Rabeprazole for a couple of weeks
If there is no improvement by then in that case you should have a test for H.Pylori
This is a bacteria responsible for peptic ulcer
So if that came back positive you will need a specific antibiotic regime to eradicate the bug
You should have a stool antigen for H.pylori if symptoms stays the same after two weeks
You should add Gaviscon to Rabeprazole as well for symptomatic relief now
Please do let me know if you have any other question
You are welcome
