In brief: Combination

Acid suppression meds in combination with antibiotics for 7-14 days.
The choice of antibiotics will be determined by your allergy profile and the resistance profiles in your community. The response rate to treatment is not 100%, more like 60-80% so be sure to be tested after treatment to check for cure.
