I have been diagnosed with severe gastritis. Endoscopy

Customer Question

I have been diagnosed with severe gastritis. Endoscopy revealed no infection nor ulcers. Was prescribed 40mg Nexium. Have taken for 1.5 months. No relief. Was prescribed Amitrityline 25mg. Took for 1 month with good results until side effects became unbearable. Yesterday was prescribed Librax 3 times per day. This all began 4 months ago. Please help.
