Triple therapy: There are several combo regimens but they are basically 2-3 antibiotics plus a stomach protector medicine like Prilosec or nexium (esomeprazole). One option is Prevpac - contains the antibiotics Amoxicillin & Clarithromycin and the proton-pump inhibitor lansoprazole. It depends on your other medical conditions and allergies.
