Rx success?: Overall eradication success with treatment for H. pylori is approximately 85 to 90%. Any follow-up testing must be done after a suitable interval to allow the bacteria, if still present, to increase in numbers so as to be detectable. It is also important that you do not take any antacid or acid suppression therapy for at least 30 days prior to any repeat testing. ...Read more

Could long term use of prilosec (3yrs) be the cause of erosive gastritis? due to not having enough acid vs. to much & therefore also cause gastritis.

Not likely: It is not likely that the Prilosec is associated with erosive gastritis. It is possible that a behavior,e.g. nonsteroidals, smoking, alcohol may have been continued, in spite of being on Prilosec - which was the risk factor. Prilosec, a proton pump inhibitor, is used to treat erosive gastritis, albeit at higher doses. ...Read more

Could Plavix (clopidogrel) cause erosive gastritis?

Could Plavix (clopidogrel) cause erosive gastritis?

Usually not, but:: The website eHealthMe reports that of 67,468 patients taking Plavix only 153 people (0.23%) reported gastritis as a side effect. Some of these patients were also taking other medications well known to cause gastritis, such as aspirin and Celebrex (celecoxib).

I have had erosive gastritis for 2 years now despite being treated with Protonix and Nexium (esomeprazole). WHY?

H. Pylori infection: Have you been scoped & if so, was a biopsy obtained? If not, it's still reasonable to argue that you have a bacterial infection of your stomach lining. At this point, an empiric triple or even quadruple therapy protocol is warranted (PPI + clarithromycin (or amoxicillin) + metronidazole + bismuth salicylate) x2 weeks. This could be managed by a Family Doc or PCP; no need to see gastroenterologist. ...Read more

I had erosive gastritis caused by H-Pylori. I treated H-Pylori and it was negative. Is it possible the gastritis remains still after treating H-P?

Possible? Sure, ...: But not likely, unless you have another underlying cause of gastritis in addition, such as aspirin or NSAID use. The gastritis usually heals. If you're still having symptoms, perhaps you have another issue altogether, such as GERD, gallbladder disease, or irritable bowel syndrome. Good luck. ...Read more
