Dear Patient,

I'm sorry to hear that. If you are around 40years and your symptoms are severe you can safely take up to 40mg omeprazole or esomeprazole (they both have the same function) once a day in the morning. Or you can take 20mg of it twice a day. If you don't find ulsanic, search for Gaviscon syrup and have that instead.

For further consultation, you can choose from our list of best General Physicians in Islamabad and seek in-person advice.
