Re: RUT: positive or negative?

Last therapy I took was a classic quadruple therapy i.e., metronidazole, tetracycline, bismuth subcitrate, esomeprazole plus amoxicillin. So basically it was rather penta therapy. I haven't heard of such combination. Also, I have heard that Amoxicillin and tetracycline should not be used together as...

Re: RUT: positive or negative?

Is it like adding Amoxicillin in the classic quadruple therapy i.e., PBMT therapy gives higher cure rate? If not, what is the purpose of adding an extra antibiotic to a standard regimen? I think Amoxicillin has been added due to high metronidazole resistance here in India. Can Amoxicillin along with...

My GI has prescribed the following: Esomeprazole 40 mg bid Bismuth subcitrate 120 mg qid Metronidazole 800 mg tid Tetracycline 500 mg qid Amoxicillin 1g tid. I haven't heard of such combination.

Re: RUT: positive or negative?

I have been meaning to ask whether I should go for PBMT therapy despite the fact that here in India metronidazole resistance is quite high ( above 50 percent). Infact metronidazole is considered the least sensitive antibiotic for h pylori. I have read that tetracycline and bismuth can overcome metro...

Re: RUT: positive or negative?

I have ordered a box of colloidal bismuth subcitrate i.e., 56 tablets(120 mg/ tablet). I have read that standard dose of colloidal bismuth subcitrate is 120 mg QID in PBMT. However, I have read people on this forum have gone for higher dose of bismuth. Does higher dose of bismuth gives higher cure r...

Re: RUT: positive or negative?

What I am going to use is 'colloidal bismuth subcitrate'. It comes with a composition of 120 mg/tablet. The manufacturer's description states its dose as 120 mg. https://m.indiamart.com/proddetail/pylobis-colloidal-bismuth-subcitrate-19154332997.html Should I take 2 tablets a time for four times a d...

Re: RUT: positive or negative?

I haven't used metronidazole yet ,but I would like to go for quadruple therapy anyway as I have heard that eradication rate of quadruple therapy is far more than any other antibiotics therapy. What is the actual eradication rate of PBMT therapy? What about the side effects of metronidazole and tetra...
