    After having suffered from horrible recurrent stomach pain for the last few years I have now had a diagnosis - gastritis.
    I have been given proton pump inhibitor drugs to stop my stomach making so much acid.
    However since starting the tablets I have felt constantly nauseous and have had trouble keeping food down. When I am sick it is streaked with blood.
    Does anyone have any experience of this? Am I reacting to the medicine or should I give it more time to kick in? Or do you reckon i should go back tomorrow?
    I'm losing weight for Christmas though!
    Thank you all

    I'd ring NHS Direct tonight or at least go back tomorrow.

    No, you definitely need to change the medication. The blood would indicate there's some ulceration which is what the tabs are designed to avoid. Also countreproductive if they're making you nauseous....
