Treatment for H. pylori

Posted , 12 users are following.

I have H. Pylori and was prescribed triple therapy over 7 days, firstly with Amoxicillin/Lansoprazole/clarithromycin, which made me extremely ill after 3 days, and then I came out in a rash. Then the doctor prescribed Metronidazole/Lansoprazole/clarithromycin, and I managed that for a couple of days before becoming very ill, but didn't get a rash this time. I haven't been back since, since there doesn't seem to be any other choice, the bug is so difficult to get rid off.

Has anyone else found a successful alternative treatment that doesn't involve drinking something both disgusting and expensive? Or managed to get through the 7 days of triple therapy without feeling so ill you want to die?

    I was diagnosed with H.Pylori on Feb 8. The intial treatment prescribed was Amoxicillin/Lansoprazole/clarithromycin, made me extremely ill after 3 days. I almost quit, but went to our hospital emergency room, as I was severely dehydrated with the vomiting and diarhoea caused by clarithromycin. 

    I got a good doctor there who substituted clarithromycin with doxycycline. He also prescribed Ondanestron for the vomiting. Ive followed this for a day and a half, and am now back to normal. I still have to be on these meds for 9 days more, and I am confident I will be able to. The total treatment is for 14 days

      Lots of gas, belching and burping, keeping me awake at night. Doc has put me on pantoprazole, while further investigations i.e. endoscopy, gastroscopy, and barium x-ray have been scheduled. Feeling better, though have become lactose intolerant, and have to eat gluten-free stuff
