what is the treatment for helicobacter pylori infection?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Brett Kalmowitz
21 years experience Gastroenterology
Combination: Acid suppression meds in combination with antibiotics for 7-14 days. The choice of antibiotics will be determined by your allergy profile and the resistance profiles in your community. The response rate to treatment is not 100%, more like 60-80% so be sure to be tested after treatment to check for cure.
