I have been diagnosed with gastritis due to H.pylori. Blood test for H.pylori antibodies is positive with 3.09 U/ml. I've never had gastritis before. Is this number of antibodies too high? Because at 1.1 U/ml isI have been given as positive while mine is much higher. I've been prescribed clarithomycin (250 mg) amoxycillin (500 mg) esomeprazol (40 mg) metronidazole (400 mg). Amoxycillin is to be taken 3 times a day and the rest twice a day. I am 23 year old female with weight of 40 kg.

Since starting the medicine I've been getting very sick. Vomiting is the main issue. I can't lay down because I start coughing and then vomit. The vomit is very acidic. My mouth gets extremely sour after vomiting. There is no nausea and the only warning for vomiting is the cough. Since these vomitings I feel like my throat is scratched. My doctor said treatment for gastritis is very painful and this is normal.

    Update: I've adjusted to the antibiotics and don't have the same problems anymore. However I still can't eat meat as it makes me sick. My doctor said I need to take these medicines for 1 more month. Antibiotics for this long? Will I have any adverse effects later because of such intense medication?
