This is the guideline to follow.
http://gut.bmj.com/content/61/5/646.full.pdf+html

in brief,
any therapy longer than 10 days is shown no benefit to just 10 days treatment.
a breath test should be done to confirm the eradication before the next treatment.
in most cases, when CLR + AMX failed, MTZ + AMX would fail too.
other salvage therapy that you can try include Bismuth-based or Rifabutin-based
quinolones-based can be effective, however care should be taken in case of other bacteria resistance.

quinolones should not be used if the resistance in the area is known to be high
Rifabutin should not be used if TB is common.
