When should I begin to feel better after taking a prevpac (lansoprazole amoxicillin and clarithromycin) for h pylori?

Couple of weeks....: The ulcers may take several weeks to heal...You may actually get more symptoms after starting the medication...Because as the bacteria die off, the stomach heals and able to produce more acid than before...So some people may get this increase for awhile...The Prevpac (lansoprazole amoxicillin and clarithromycin) is not 100% effective so follow-up with doc for test-of-cure (often a breath-test).
If much worse, consult doci.

Try probiotics: It is unlikely that you would have re-infected yourself with h. pylori after a week. Your symptoms may be some discomfort caused by the antibiotics, which inadvertently kill some of the "good" bacteria in your intestines in addition to killing the h.pylori bacteria. You can try yogurt three times a day, or taking an over the counter probiotic in your local pharmacy. See your MD if it continues. Read more
