You probably need something more than Zantax like Nexium, Prilosec(almost the same) Protonix, Prevacid or Aciphex. What are the ulcers from? Medicine? as most ulcers now are caused by the H. PYlori bacteria and you need a special cocktail of drugs to get rid of it. For you heartburn you might try Maalox Complete as it will coat the esophagous and Ido think the doctor can give you omse pain med for it also that will coat it.
