it could be the side effect. but drinking lots of water is a good idea. Nevertheless, you need to know that you are taking heavy antibiotics at the moment. It should kill off most of the bacteria, good and bad. Fungus may start growing. If you think if you have fungus infection, such as candida or thrush, you need to speak to your doctor about it.

Thanks for the details.

What is the time gap required between medication and retest?

the guideline says 2 weeks after medication. We normally recommend 1 month after treatment. The longer you wait, the more accurate is the re-test outcome.

remember, only stool or breath test. no blood test.

Hello Helico_Expert!

I have completed by course of medication. Aftet 4 days of my medication my Acid Reflux persisting again with throat ache and sharp pain in the stmach. I been to doctor he given me Dexlansoprazole 60mg (1 x Morning) and Nizatidine 150mg (1 x night) before food. He told me to use it when ever i feel heart burn for 2 days. He told to visit after a month to retest Urea Breath Test.

I was worried about health now becuase of this sharp pain in the stomach (like some surgical pain) and throat aches it will last for few minutes to hours.

Can you please advise me if anything else i can do to recover?

follow your doctor's instruction. Take Nizatidine whenever you need it. continue to use this drug until the night before breath test.

Hi Helico_Expert,,

I have stopped all the tablets couple of weeks back, now i feel very better and earlier. The only problems i have is global sensation.

I have taken Urea Breath Test yesturday and the result was negative. But the day before the test i have taken a tablet Disflatyl. Is this impact on the test results?

Thanks in advance

congratulation on your negative breath test result. Disflatyl will not affect the breath test result.
