What medications help treat ulcers?

There are multiple medications that a person can take to treat symptoms of ulcer disease. Antacids are the most common over-the-counter medications that patients take. You can also take medications like H2 blockers that help decrease the acid production of the stomach. Very common medications are proton pump inhibitors that doctors can prescribe in order to reduce the acidity of the stomach and allow for healing of the lining of the mucosa.
