I am suffering from ulcer for half a decade, I smoked a lot (stopped after the diagnose). I started to eat healthy and I take meds for treating and preventing ulcer. Lately, I have also been using Rolaids, which creates a protective layer over the stomach epithet; and that decrease the pain considerably. I heard that Alka Seltzer might be helpful too with my condition. Should I use Rolaids or Alka Seltzer?

I think that there has been some misunderstanding because Alka Seltzer is actually an aspirin and it induces inhibition of prostaglandins. So, protective effect that prostaglandins give to stomach epitel is gone. I would not recommend you to use that medication; Rolaids should be all you need. Do not take any other drug if not necessary.
