    Surgery can be very beneficial to people who have ulcers, but it often is not necessary. Usually, surgery becomes necessary because of the complications caused by an ulcer or because drug treatment is not working. For instance, a peptic ulcer on your small intestine can eat through the wall of your intestines and start affecting other organs, which may not be treated successfully with medication and could require surgery. A corneal ulcer (in the eye) might damage your cornea so much that you might need a transplant. Your doctor may suggest surgery if other treatments are unsuccessful.

    Most patients can take Librax and Coumadin together safely - provided that you and your doctor closely monitor for any changes in your blood clotting time (INR) whenever a change in your drug regimen involves Librax. When taking Coumadin, it is always a good practice to keep your doctor informed of any changes in your prescription or over-the-counter medications so that you can closely monitor the effects on your blood clotting time (INR).

    This surgery for ulcer disease removes the lower part of the stomach (antrum), which produces a hormone that stimulates the stomach to secrete digestive juices. Sometimes, a surgeon may also remove an adjacent part of the stomach that secretes pepsin and acid. An antrectomy is usually done in conjunction with a vagotomy, a surgical procedure that involves cutting the vagus nerve in the stomach to reduce acid secretion.

    The medications for ulcers treat pain and infection of the sores and foster healing. For peptic ulcers, which are found in the digestive tract, antibiotics treat the H. pylori infection that often causes ulcers; acid blockers, antacids, and proton pump inhibitors keep acid levels that cause pain lower; and cytoprotective agents fortify the tissues that line the digestive tract. If you would like to understand the medications you might need to take for an ulcer, you can ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain.

    There are prescription medications that your doctor can suggest to treat your ulcer. Antibiotics, for instance, may be necessary to treat some ulcers and are available only by prescription. Other medications that can reduce pain and speed up the healing process can be prescribed by your doctor.

    You seem to be concerned about how drugs like sucralfate and Prilosec affect depression. Depression is not a side effect of sucralfate.  Sucralfate works mostly locally, which means it coats the stomach directly and does not go into the body.  It should be separated from all other medications by two hours to prevent decreased absorption of the other medications.  81% of iGuard patients do feel the good effects of Prilosec outweigh any negatives.  In our survey of iGuard members taking Prilosec there have not been any reports of depression with Prilosec.  According to the Prilosec product labeling, depression has not been reported as a side effect.

    Bloating is a side effect of Librax. It may subside, as sometimes it takes your body some time to get used to a new medicine. Give it some time, and then evaluate with your doctor if it is beneficial to you.

    Although classic aneurysms located in the thoracic aorta are not usually at high risk of rupture, penetrating ulcers may require surgery. Most commonly, this disease is treatable with minimally invasive endovascular stent procedures.

    For more severe skin ulcers, such as late-stage bed sores, large mouth sores, or peptic ulcers, you need professional medical attention. There may be some alternative treatments available for a milder condition. Everyday canker sores (aphthous ulcers) can be prevented and treated without medications by taking nutritional supplements, making a homemade paste, and using stress-reduction strategies that can include exercise and deep breathing. If you wish to explore alternative treatments for your ulcer, talk to your healthcare provider first.
