Pepcid AC extra strength works well for me.

Are you sure it's a stomach ulcer?  Was it officially diagnosed as an ulcer?

If you haven't had an upper GI endoscopy yet, you need to. 

Ulcers can bleed--sometimes badly.  And there's always a small chance that it could be Barrett's esophagus or cancer of the upper GI tract.  Both are far more serious conditions than a simple ulcer.  The endoscopy will show just what's going on in there.

In the meantime, I've had decent results with prescription Nexium.  Ask your doctor for a scrip of that.

You could try to mix some baking powder (in the yellow box) a couple teaspoons in some water.
Or maybe some epsom salts mixed with some water niether taste well but could give you some relief.

ginger is good - try some ginger ale, if you can find some made with real ginger.
