Re: Positive test results, triple therapy for 7 days...worried it won't work and going 2 months to South America

Clarithromycin and Metronidazole are more of a first line basic and common antibiotics. They have good cure rate if you dont normally take antibiotics in your life. H. pylori can never develop resistance to Amoxicillin and Bismuth. So you can always repeat these antibiotics. Amoxicillin is preferred...

bismuth is antibacterial. so it will not help with your acid. taking PPI or H2 blocker is to prevent burn on your throat. So, it is better to take either one if you can.

Re: Triple Therapy How Best to take
