You should keep taking this medicine for as long as your doctor recommends. If you stop treatment too early your symptoms may come back and your condition may worsen.

Benefits of Ulgel Tablet

In Acidity

Ulgel Tablet relieves excessive acidity in your stomach which prevents heartburn and indigestion. Usually, it is used along with other medicines for management of your condition.
Continue taking it for as long as the doctor may advise you to. You need to take this medicine regularly to get the most out of it. Take a fiber-rich diet, avoid oily or spicy food and drink plenty of fluids while taking it to make sure you stay hydrated.

In Stomach ulcers

Stomach ulcers are painful sores that develop in the inner lining of the stomach or gut (intestine). Ulgel Tablet reduces the amount of acid your stomach makes which prevents further damage to the ulcer as it heals naturally. You may be given other medicines along with this medicine depending on what caused the ulcer. You need to keep taking Ulgel Tablet as prescribed by the doctor for it to be effective, even if the symptoms seem to disappear.

In Bloating

Bloating refers to excessive buildup of gas in our stomach due to abnormal muscle movement in our stomach and intestines. Ulgel Tablet improves the movement of food in the stomach and helps prevent bloating.
