Take combination of Ilaprazole and famotidine
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am a Gastroenterologist.
I can understand your concerns
You have severe GERD and acid peptic disease
To my patients with refractory GERD I prefer a combination which I found very useful.
I will suggest you to take Ilaprazole along with a prokinetic agent levosulpiride.
It comes by the name of Iladac-L od before breakfast. Also take tablet Famotidine 40mg od (Brand name Tab Topcid) od after dinner
Moreover some lifestyle modifications are also required which are:
1.To avoid tea, coffee, oily and spicy food.
2.Also avoid citrus fruits.
3.Among medications take a proton pump inhibitor like rabeprazole and a prokinetic agent like domperidone.
4.Don't lie down at least for 2 hrs after any meal and
5. Don't drink water for at least 2 hrs with any meal.
I hope I have answered your query and this will help you . Wish you a good health
My main worry is, am I safe from H Pylori infection. Is 7 day antibiotics sufficient? Is there any other test I will have to do to make sure I am safe?
Little confused with many medicine names.
Famotidine 40mg od (Brand name Tab Topcid) od after dinner
Would be great if you can help me with Medicine names.
Thanks in advance.
get urea breathe teat or stool antigen to confirm
Welcome back and sorry for delay.
Usually treatment for h.pylori that is hp kit is to be taken for continous 14 days. I will suggest you to confirm whether h.pylori has been finished from your body or not. Either of these two tests urea breathe test or stool antigen test you should undergo to confirm this.
Yes you are right iladac l is to be taken before breakfast and tablet topcid to be taken after dinner
I hope I have satisfied your query and this will help you. Wish you a good health. Take care
