yup, the stool is good for weeks in the fridge or freezer. The test is testing the presence of HP proteins. It doesnt matter if HP died.

Thank you expert, i will let you know my test result next week.
I'm still taking H2 antagonist, and my symptoms still come and go, such as bloating, and rare stomachache(no as many as before)but i do feel a very obvious improvement that is i haven't had acid-reflux for about a week.

Do you recommend me to take omeprazole after i get my test result next week?

yup. you can switch to PPI after you have done your test. Talk to your doctor about the possibility of doubling the dose if needed.

Hello expert, doctor told me that i can take omeprazol twice in a day, with dosage 20 mg per soft-gel.

Hello expert, i already got my stool antigen test result.it also came back as negative.
I'm just 2 days away from finishing Famotidine, do you recommend me to continue taking Famotidine for another two days or start taking Omeprazole now? thank you

congratulation on the negative stool test result.

If you think Famotidine is not strong enough, you can switch to omeprazole, or even rabeprazole.

Thank you expert,
I will switch to omeprazole when i finish Famotidine tomorrow. I will keep you updated for more information.

Also i have a question, which PPI is more stronger between Omeprazole and Rabeprazole?

Some people metabolize omeprazole faster. So you need stronger dose. So far rabeprazole and pentoprazole have no such problem discovered yet.

So some doctors prefer to use rabeprazole and pentoprazole over omeprazole.
