I have problem of esophagitis Gr. B +small hernia+Chronic gastritis with duodenal ulcer. I was put on esomeprazole 40 mg + Itopride 150 mg (Sompraz - IT). I have been using them since 3 years. If I stop, I am getting my GERD symptoms back. Is it safe to continue the medicine?

Mr. lybrate-user, as it is already 3rd year of conservative treatment, I think you should now visit a Gatro Surgeon who is doing Nissan's fundoplication, the gold standard surgery for Hiatas hernia with GERD. Safe surgery with experienced hands.
