Doctor insights on:
I just started taking prevpac yesterday. I also take 10mg lexapro (escitalopram). Is it safe to take these together?
Is there a good diet to follow while taking prevpac(h.Yplori) to prevent side effects? Like activia yogurt and probiotics?
Do I have to take antibiotics (prevpac) for h.Pylori if i don't have any ulcers or serious symptoms?
I had h.Pylori infx treated w/prevpac, egd confirmed ulcer healed and stool antigen test confirmed h.Pylori eradicated in oct'12. Why symptoms returned?
Was prescribed Prevpac along with metronidazole for h.pylori, any concerns with this combo? I take Diltiazem, accupril, (quinapril) levothyroxin
Be aware : Prevpac (lansoprazole amoxicillin and clarithromycin) can decrease levothyroxin effectiveness & increase risk for hypothyroidism. Prevpac (lansoprazole amoxicillin and clarithromycin) can increase diltiazem effectiveness which would increase risk for hypotension. Probably mild effect, so no worries but be aware. ...Read more
Acid reflux and pain in the naval region for the past few month. Prescribed omeprazole for a month. During this month symptom disappeared and recurred intermittently. Doctor advised to treat this as a possible peptic ulcer with a course of 14 days prevpac
H pylori was neg but doc said take Prevpac since I can't afford EGD yet. Safe to do? Burping/chest pain/regurg/weight loss. PPI 8wks but not working.
Digestive problems: Well a gastroenterologist is an 'expert' in this field - so hopefully something can get worked out for you to have the full evaluation, which helps direct the best treatment. In the meantime, you could try various things for improvement. I'm a big fan of ginger. I recc ginger tea, ginger candies, anything with ginger. Take ginger root, boil for 10 min, add honey -see if that helps. Feel better! ...Read more
I finished prevpack a month ago for Helicobacter P.I m wondering if my family husband and kids should be tested if they do not have symptoms.Thanks?
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?
I'm taking prevpack triple therapy for 14 days . Will it eradicate all the h pylori bacteria in one single treatment?
That is the plan: But not always. Occasionally, if you have continued symptoms and are retested and found to have continued h pylori, you may need second course or different antibiotic (choice depending on what doc you speak with). However, the prevpack is suppose to treat it and hopefully end the infection and relieve your symptoms. ...Read more
