If a 2-week period of treatment is not sufficient, healing will be achieved in almost all cases within a further 2 weeks. Gastric Ulcer The recommended oral dosage is one gastro-resistant tablet SOMAC 40mg per day. A 4-week period is usually required for the treatment of gastric ulcers. If this is not sufficient, healing will usually be achieved within a further 4 weeks. GORD For mild reflux disease and the associated symptoms, the recommended dosage is one SOMAC 20mg tablet per day. Symptom relief is generally accomplished within 2-4 weeks. If symptom control has not been achieved after four weeks treatment with SOMAC 20mg tablets daily, further investigation is recommended. For treatment of reflux oesophagitis, the recommended oral dosage is one SOMAC 40mg tablet per day. A 4-week period is usually required for treatment of reflux oesophagitis, however if this is not sufficient, healing will usually be achieved within a further 4 weeks.

After healing of the relapse the dosage can be reduced again to 20mg SOMAC. Experience with long-term administration in man over several years is available in a limited number of patients.
