Are you asking about dispensing a medicine for treatment of Peptic Ulcer or some other condition?

Get medication history.
Has he/she been to the doctor regarding his/her symptoms?
What is he/she taking currently to ease the symptoms?
If he/she is on any medicine and is it helping him/her.
Is there any current bleeding obvious in stool?
Any vomiting with blood in it?
Does the patient have any other medical condition/s?

And do suggest that the patient see the doctor if they haven't been already or if there is any complication.

Oh and also ask how long they have been experiencing the symptoms for.
