Answer

Active ulcers associated with NSAID use are treated with an appropriate course of PPI therapy and the cessation of NSAIDs. [60] For patients with a known history of ulcer and in whom NSAID use is unavoidable, the lowest possible dose and duration of the NSAID and co-therapy with a PPI or misoprostol are recommended.
