New treatment started today
150 ranitidine twice daily
500 mg tetracycline 3 times daily
400mg flagyl twice daily for 14 days
Really hope this works as i had flagyl last time and it failed
Should use PPI instead of ranitidine. Try to get rabeprazole from pharmacy.

Re: H. Pylori infection of urethra / urinary tract?

Thank you for sharing your story. H. pylori only colonise the stomach. However, there are many other species of Helicobacter which colonise the lower guts.

Re: H. Pylori Test Without Stopping PPI

I am not sure if H. pylori is related to the cramping. But in regards to H2 blocker, I think it's subjective. You can try ask the pharmacist to recommend some.

Re: Recently tested positive for H. Pylori.

Thanks for sharing your story. I hope you are taking PPI together with the Amoxicillin, Metronidazole and Clarithromycin together. It's a quadruple therapy. If you think PPI once a day is not enough, you can take twice a day. You can take pepto bismal if it makes you feel better. Pepto bismal is lik...

H. pylori is not spread through sex or food. As long as the person you are kissing with also have good oral hygiene, you wont catch it. In Australia, we prescribe bismuth 240mg, 4 times a day.

If you have good hygiene, eg. brush teeth, wash hands, not sharing food and drinks, after H. pylori is eradicated, I dont think you'll catch it again.

Have fun in Brazil. be positive!

we call this the PBMT treatment. Metronidazole and Tetracycline has good synergistic effect and has good cure rate. You can imagine that Metronidazole is the toxin building up in the bacteria. The resistant strain is able to neutralize the toxin quickly. Tetracycline on the other hand is stopping th...
