Re: H pylori eradicated still very gaseous

If you have no reflux and ranitidine or PPI is not helping with your gas symptoms, then you can gradually stop it. The gas and burping is difficult to explain. I know someone who has never been infected with H. pylori and yet experiencing burping everyday. So even if your HP eradication is successfu...

Re: H pylori eradicated still very gaseous

I have been on ranitidine for a month now. Should I stop taking it? If not, for how long should I continue? Ranitidine is pretty safe. you can continue to take it if you have symptoms. If you dont, you can stop anytime. You need to get a follow up breath test when you can. Just stop ranitidine the ...

Re: Mastic gum & Breath test results

I dont think mastic gum will affect the breath test. However, just in case it does, you should stop taking it the night before breath test.

Re: Multiple eradication failures - is old dental work a culprit? And more questions...

Hi, I am sorry to hear that you are very unfortunate that you caught a very difficult strain. 1. H. pylori cannot live in the mouth. Keeping oral with good hygiene can reduce the risk of transmitting H. pylori. As long as your mouth is cleansed, then kissing is not a problem. 2. Can H. pylori live i...

Re: Are these symptoms related to h pylori?

H. pylori is related to GERD and reflux. Patients may feel stomach pain due to inflammation. I dont think H. pylori is associated with your tongue symptoms that you describe. Nevertheless, since you are on nexium, you cannot do breath test. Discuss with your doctor about stool/breath/blood test and ...

Re: Helicobacter symtomps reverse after treatment

sequential means.. you take PPI and Amoxicillin for 5 days, then PPI + Amox + 2 other antibiotics for another 5 days. the idea is to kill majority of the strain in the first 5 days and kill off the rest with other antibiotics. Concomitant means.. take all 4 tables together. I think the antibiotic ch...

Re: Recently diagnosed, but no symptoms. Quad treatmt: Newbie Questions

alcohol act as a solvent. normally the effect of alcohol is to reduce the effect of antibiotics. your side effect is probably something else. eg. mentally stressed about it. usually side effect of antibiotics will go away within a week after stopping. try relax and gather positive thoughts.

Re: Helicobacter symtomps reverse after treatment

That's bad luck. So you have tried Amoxicillin Clarithromycin Levofloxacin In your next treatment, you can ask your doctor for Rabeprazole 20mg 3x a day Amoxicillin 1g 3x a day Bismuth 240mg 4x a day H. pylori can never become resistant to the two drugs above. Then you need one extra antibiotic to b...

Re: H pylori eradicated still very gaseous

Most people catch H. pylori when they are young. Studies have shown that children as young as 2 years old is already infected with H. pylori. So for decades, H. pylori has been slowly damaging your stomach lining and for most people that they are asymptomatic, they dont know about it. Until one day,...
