you are experiencing side effects of the antibiotics on the 3rd day on wards.

how many weeks between end of treatment and endoscopy? if you have not stopped treatment long enough, there may be too little bacteria left to give positive results from endoscopy. did your specialist order a histology or CLOtest?

Ranitidine is good. if you may want to do another breath test to find out if you still have H. pylori. You can continue ranitidine until the day before breath test.

lastly, which PPI give you side effects? you might want to consider other PPI, eg. rabeprazole.

I see. from your description, I think your specialist is doing the right thing. Unfortunately you'll have to continue on Ranitidine until you are better. There is one more PPI that you can try, Rabeprazole. It is metabolised differently compare to other PPI that you mentioned. perhaps you can give that a try.

A few tips:
  • Higher PPI have higher cure rate. We give 20mg Rabeprazole 3x a day.
  • H. pylori never become resistant to Amoxicillin and Bismuth. These two drugs can be reused all the time in high dose.
  • Never repeat the other antibiotics you had previously
