Quadruple therapy, im confused?!

Post by mimetiva » Mon Oct 08, 2018 12:09 pm

Retested 2weeks ago. YUP, IM POSITIVE AGAIN.

Dr. gave me my positive news last Wednesday, Oct. 3. He said he was putting me on a quadruple therapy. Got my meds today but there was only 3 prescribed. Am I missing something? Quadruple therapy means 4 meds right? Confused?

The dr. prescribed me:
Omeprazole 10mg, 1 x a day
Tetracycline 500mg 4 times a day
Metronidazol 250mg 4 times a day

Been taking bentyl (4 times a day) since 2 weeks ago
I also started taking probiotics 30million ultimate flora.

Are these meds ok?
Why is it called quadruple therapy?
Am I missing anything?

I'm gonna call my dr tomorrow.
