I need to get retested for Helicobacter once 28 days pass after triple therapy. Can I continue to use Mastic Gum Caps and DGL up to the breathe Test?

I think it is best to stop them for at least a week before the breath test. if you are experiencing reflux symptoms, you can get some H2 blocker, such as ranitidine. You can continue taking ranitidine until the day before the breath test.
