Treatments of Gastritis discussion: Treatment usually involves taking antacids and other drugs to reduce stomach acid and thereby help relieve symptoms and promote healing. (Stomach acid irritates the inflamed tissue in the stomach.) You will also need to avoid any foods, beverages, or medicines that cause symptoms. If smoking is the problem, you should quit.

If your gastritis is related to an illness or infection, that problem will have to be treated as well. For example, the doctor will prescribe antibiotics to clear up a bacterial infection or vitamin B12 to treat anemia. Once the underlying problem disappears, the gastritis usually does, too. Talk to your doctor before stopping any medicine or starting any gastritis treatment on your own. 1
