Can Pantoprazole Be Taken Along With Carafate?
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.R.K and I am pleased to assist you.
Yes you can take 80 mg.
You can take pantoprazole 40 mg twice a day.
Can you post the complete report of upper GI endoscopy?
Now i was disgnosed with h pylori so i went on the triple therapy. I wasnt eating much while taking the high doses kf antibiotics and my stomsch started to burn me really bad. Then i went to get check for h pylori after the treatment and the doctor told me that they had successfully removed it, but i was still left with the acid reflux and burning in my stomach. So after hearing my bsckground my doctor decided fo prescribe me pantroprazole and the carafate. I will also have an endoscopy done soon.
Does this sound like i got a form of gastritis due to the medication i took to eradicate the h pylori? Or does it sound like something more serious?
I have been sick for almost three months now on this medicstion. Some days i feel better than ithers and sometimes i feel 100% again but when i eat tomato sauce or drink soda i feel bad again the next days.
Not due to anti H.pylori medications
Thanks for the additional information.
The triple therapy you took for H.pylori does not cause gastritis. In fact it will heal it as one of the three medications is a PPI used to treat gastritis.
Good to know that you have successfully eradicated H.pylori with triple therapy.
You may have to take pantaprazole for 8-12 weeks for complete relief.
Dietary changes are also important. Avoid tomato, soda, coffee, citrus, peppermint, fatty food and spices.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
