An intense regimen of Z-Pak antibiotics with PRILOSEC or PREVICID. It killed those nasty little buggers once and for all!

I'm beginning to suspect that it isn't the Wellbutrin that's causing the upset, but perhaps the Sonata that I'm taking for sleep. I didn't take the sleeping pill last night and no ulcer attack... sooooo, I've got a call into the doctor today to ask and to ask about drug interaction if I take over the counter Tagamet or something.

Thanks for the info on ulcers! I'll see about getting an appointment soon to see if I could just get rid of this alien thing for good!
