How is gastritis treated?
Treatment for gastritis usually involves taking antacids and other drugs to reduce stomach acid. These medications will help relieve symptoms and promote healing. Also, avoiding nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can help.
For gastritis caused by Helicobacter pylori, your doctor will prescribe antibiotics. Once the underlying problem disappears, the gastritis usually does, too. You should talk to your doctor before stopping any medicine or starting any gastritis treatment.
