GERD, acid reflux

Was initially diagnosed with H.pylori infection and duodenal ulcers. Doctor says opening at end of stomach has widened than normal. He is giving me pantocid L/ pantocid 40 since 6 months along with sucral/ samsuc syrup.  Is the treatment right? There is no hilatel hernia. If I don't take medicine, I face acid reflux.
