A member asked:

Is ciprofloxacin 500 mg 2x/day for 10 days good for an ulcer? or just small intestinal bacteria? is it strong antibiotics? i'm also on carafate.

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Compliance most imp: H pylori eradication rates were higher for a 7-day antibiotic regimen containing lansoprazole, amoxicillin, and clarithromycin (LAC), when used as first-line therapy compared with levofloxacin, amoxicillin, and lansoprazole (LAL). Probiotics before or after standard H. pylori treatment improve eradication rates. Antibiotics kill both good and bad bacteria . Probiotics help replenish good bacteria
