After triple therapy

Post by Vince20 » Mon Jun 27, 2016 10:07 pm

So I completed a 14 day course of triple therapy and I was just wondering how long I have to wait after completion to start feeling normal again (if it worked). During therapy I started feeling 90% better 10 days in but toward the end of treatment I started to feel the antibiotics do a number on my gut with bloating and pain returning.

Also, I know fatigue is a side effect of the antibiotics, but is it normal to get fatigue again once you go off triple therapy?

hi, most people feel improvement immediately after antibiotic treatment. I think you are experiencing the side effect of the antibiotics. Let us know how you feel 3 days after you stop the antibiotics.

I'm on my 5th day off antibiotics and I'm feeling somewhat better, but it really depends on the time of day and if I can go to the bathroom honestly. Do you think this mean the antibiotics failed? Or that I still have an ulcer/gastritis that needs healing? I have nurse practioner appt in a week.

I think it's too early to tell if your treatment work. You'll have to wait till the follow up breath test a month later to be absolutely sure.

Nevertheless, it is normal that you dont feel 100% now. your stomach is most likely trying to adjust itself to adapt to a no H. pylori condition.

Try some mint tea or some probiotics to help your recovery after the heavy antibiotics.

Thank you, also do you know the correlation between h pylori and stunted growth? I have had knee condition for a year that indicates a late growth spurt and I haven't grown. (Osgood Schlautters)

i have not heard any story about H. pylori correlate with growing. I believe H. pylori has more correlation with immune related diseases.

Everyone's situation is different and many, if not most, seem to deal with treatment well. The five most frequently reported post treatment symptoms/side effects were fatigue, joint aches/pains, brain fog, depression and mood swings. For me, it's normal. But it still needs time to see whether your treatment is working.
Best of luck and I hope that you recover in time
