Alternative Treatments For H Pylori
I have been prescribed a 7 day treatment of prevacid, (lansoprazole) amoxic.& clarth. For H pylori but can't withstand the side effects. Any alternative treatment?
Treat the H.pylori: If helicobacter pylori has been documented in association with your ulcer, then treatment of it is requisite. Not treating this bacteria places you at risk for ulcer non-healing, ulcer recurrence, & even stomach cancer.There are a number of antibiotic combinations that work quite effectively in eradicating the infection but all of them have side effects & are pretty strong to fight this tough bug.
Antibiotics+PPI: H.Pylori is a bacteria that infects the stomache lining. The symptoms are usually upper abdominal pain and burning sensation, dyspepsia or gastritis. It can cause peptic ulcer disease and even stomache cancers. It can be cured by combination antibiotic treatment with amoxicillin, metronidazole, biaxin (clarithromycin) along with a proton pump inhibitor such as pantaprozole or omipprazole given for 10 to 14 days.See 1 more doctor answer

Its possible you &: ...your husband have been passing the infection back and forth. It's critical that you both eradicate the H.pylori organism with simultaneous treatment.

Stomach pain: Please request your doctor to do a urea breath test when you are not on antibiotics and PPIs for at leat 10 days to make sure whether or not H.pylori has been cured.

Is it normal to get regularilly constapated after treatment for h pylori, stil have most of symptoms and finished course 1 week ago?
You took antibiotics: ...That killed off more that just h.Pylori. Your normal bacterial flora of the gut, both bacterial mass as well as composition, was likely altered. Perhaps, during the course of antibiotics you also modified your diet since some h.Pylori regimens are unpleasant to take. Consider starting a probiotic of your choice, optimize dietary fibers, drink more fluids. Still a problem, then see your doctor.
After taking prevpack triple therapy for 14days, if no more h pylori symptoms do I still need to test again? If so how long after the treatment?
Probably not: If you desire confirmatory testing it can be performed at virtually any time after a presumptive successful course of therapy. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer

Upset stomach: Helicobacter pylori are bacteria that invade stomach, until recent decades scientists did not believe bacteria can exist in acid of stomach, as they can not be seen with ordinary stains, cause all gastric troubles, distention bloating, up set stomach, ulcers and even malignancy in some cases. Now presence could be detected by blood test and could be eliminated by antibiotics.
Please let your: Prescriber know to get help getting back on track. Take care.
Variable: The response will vary depending on the individual and to whether h. Pylori was the cause of the symptoms to begin with.
Not likely: H pylori treatment results in significant improvements in symptoms by 8 weeks after treatment is completed, some continuing improvement can be seen over the next 6 months after therapy is completed. A study investigating this can be found here - https://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pmc/articles/PMC3798209/See 1 more doctor answer
It depends: Usually treating the H pylori does not make symptoms improve. What it will do is help either the gastritis or the ulcer to heal, which can improve symptoms. Accordingly, it takes some time, usually a minimum of a few weeks, to begin to feel any difference. Hope this helps.
