H.Pylori Treatment Question (PLEASE HELP)

I was tested positive for Helicobacter Pylori about one year ago and was prescribed the first line Triple therapy treatment(HP- Pac) for 14 days. I decided to start treatment on my holidays and initially I felt much better after completion of treatment and did not have this 'after taste' from drinking water anymore which I usually had when I was infected. After I returned back to work I almost immediately had all symptoms reoccur and knew right then that the treatment had failed. After waiting more than 6 months I decided to get retested and without too much amazement was still positive. I knew my job had something to do with my unsuccessful attempt to eradicate H.Pylori for the simple fact that I worked at a hospital in waste management and was constantly exposed to contaminated waste particles floating all over. I would literally have the taste of Garbage in my mouth at the end of my work shift, the exact same taste H.Pylori gives me when I drink water. Anyways, long story short the doctor I saw prescribed me the exact same treatment as I was on last time and my concern is that the H.Pylori dwelling inside of me have become Antibiotic-Resistant from the last time I was on Hp - Pac ? Should I see another doctor and opt for the Quadruple Treatment ?

Hi Michael
From everything I've read, the very last thing you should do is take the same treatment as last time so if necessary change doctors! I also failed the first triple therapy and am currently in the middle of the quad therapy, omeprazole, bismuth, tetracycline and metronidazole. It's a real pain to follow but I'm hoping it will do the trick. If I were you I'd visit the Helico.com website as there is a wealth of information there to help you become more informed. Good luck.

I did the prevpac a couple years ago and it was horrible. I found an article in Womans World magazine page 23 of the 7/18/11 magizine that talks about coconut killing h. pylori bacteria. I have had all my prior symptoms back for at least 14 months now and I had a bag of shredded coconut in the cupboard so I thought "why not try it" certainly cant hurt as we eat it all the time. I was just AMAZED with the first teaspoon that i ate!! I still have the full bloated feeling after eating but for the last week and a half the symptoms IMMEDIATELY lessen and most time disappear completely with ingestion of coconut. May not work for everyone but you wont know till you try it and its probably already in your kitchen cupboard. Good luck and hope it helps.

Coconut oil is currently in focus among health advocates. I would give it a try though unfortunately due to an allergy I am unable to eat coconut. But anything that can suppress h.pylori activity is worth while maintaining in a regular diet !

I will remove my fillings right away! just finishing my second round of Antibiotics is key the diet: Broccoli sprouts for one month every day in salads and or sandwiches or you can make it part of your regular diet along with mature broccoli, the mature broccoli needs to be combined with radish or some mustard sauce to get the best out of it. Brocoli in all ways will keep our stomachs clean from HP but consistency will make the difference.

This is my 2nd time with this nasty medication. The first time I had to stop due to sore muscles and diahrreah. This time I figured out the magic combination: 1. Probiotics, 2 a day in between doses. 2. Eat a good meal after meds, skip the salads, you need to be full. 3. Keep a full glass of ice water with fresh squeezed lemon - drink all day, it really helps with nausea 4. No more than 1 cup of coffee, skip it if you can. 5. Limit exercise and activity...or your muscles will ache!! 6. Eat small healthy snacks every hour, including before bed. Trust me, this works like a charm, no cramps, no diahrreah and no muscle aches. I've been told staying on pro-biotocs will help keep any future bad bugs and IBS symptoms at bay... Worth a try :)

Hope this helps!!

I have been diagnosed with the Helicobater Pylori; my family doctor as prescribed the HP-PAC. I am ready to take it, starting tonight, but I have a question: The pharmacist advised me to have breakfast before taking the morning dose, and to have something before the evening one, unless the directions in the box clearly indicates "Take full morning dose with liquid, before meals. 12 hours later take full evening dose with liquid, before meals".
My family doctor asked me to follow the pharmacist advise.

I'm interested in knowing if the antibiotics cured your bad breath?
