Learn All About Gastrointestinal Medication for People With Acid Reflux, Heartburn or Ulcers

Gastrointestinal Issues and Diagnosis

Common problems that affect people’s gastrointestinal or gut health are acid reflux, heartburn and ulcers. All of these are more stomach related than intestine related.

Acid Reflux

Acid reflux is caused when your stomach acid travels up toward your throat. It can superficially burn some of the linings of your oesophagus on the way. There are a lot of symptoms including an unpleasant taste (caused by the stomach acid), a cough or hiccups, a hoarse voice, bad breath, bloating and feeling sick. The symptoms often get worse when we eat, lie down or bend over.

Heartburn

A lot of us get heartburn occasionally and it’s a milder version of acid reflux. Sometimes there’s no obvious reason why has occurred. Here’s a list of heartburn triggers:
  • Being overweight
  • Smoking
  • Pregnancy
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Eating and drinking certain things such as alcohol, spicy food or fatty foods
  • Some medicines, e.g. ibuprofen
Having heartburn occasionally is normal. If you have it very often it could be a symptom of a more serious problem. We recommend seeing a doctor if the symptoms persist.

Stomach Ulcers

The most common symptom of a stomach ulcer is a specific pain in the abdomen (stomach) which has a gnawing or burning sensation. It can last for a few hours or all day. The pain often occurs after eating and can also wake up a stomach ulcer patient and cause sleep problems. Taking antacids might provide temporary relief but the pain will come back as the antacids treat the symptom, not the underlying health condition. Serious stomach ulcers which remain untreated can prove fatal, so if you suspect you may have a stomach ulcer it’s important to seek professional advice from a doctor.

Gastrointestinal Medication and Treatment Types

Heartburn and Acid Reflux

For heartburn and acid reflux over the counter, ant-acid solutions are often prescribed. There are some stronger acid blockers provided by doctors for extreme cases, too.

Stomach Ulcers

There are a lot of different medications available to treat stomach ulcers. Antibiotics may be prescribed to kill H. Pylori which is responsible for some types of ulcers. PPIs (Proton Pump Inhibitors) are also often prescribed. These prescription and over-the-counter medications include omeprazole (Prilosec), lansoprazole (Prevacid), rabeprazole (Aciphex), esomeprazole (Nexium) and pantoprazole (Protonix). Their purpose is to block acid production and give your stomach a chance to heal.

Gastrointestinal Facts & Figures

According to statistics published by MedScape: “In the United States, peptic ulcer disease affects approximately 4.6 million people annually, with an estimated 10% of the US population having evidence of a duodenal ulcer at some time.”
