What is the correct dosage for antibiotics and PPI?

The cure of Hp usually requires antibiotics. Other things have been tried and have a weaker effect.

What is the correct dosage for antibiotics and PPI?

Post by frostyfeet » Sat Mar 31, 2018 12:57 pm

My doctor prescribed me Amoxicillin 500MG, Clarithromycin 500MG, and Omeprazole 20MG. I take these 2x daily for 14 days.

I've seen some people get Amoxicillin 1G.

Is what I'm taking okay? Is it enough?

I'm nervous because I've been suffering from these symptoms for so long and this seems like a promising cure: viewtopic.php?f=33&t=205835

Actually, I'm supposed to take 2 Amoxicillin pills twice daily for a total of 4 Amoxicillin pills per day.

I only took one Amoxicillin pill in each of the first 3 times I took the medicine (1.5 days). For the rest of my 12.5 days of treatment, I will take 2 Amoxicillin 2x daily.

Will my mistake make it less likely for success?

Thanks.

Luckily, H. pylori doesnt develop resistance to Amoxicillin. Also, you discover early. So I dont think your mistake is a big problem.
