Proper 3 months therapy required.
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice
Most likely cause in most cases is improper management of H.pylori.
H.pylori requires proper 3 months of management including two broad spectrum antibiotic with a strong proton pump inhibitor.
I would suggest you to start a fresh course of-
Tab Amoxicillin 1000 mg twice daily
Tab Clarithromicin 500mg twice daily
Tab Rabeprazole 20 mg once daily.
Initially follow this for 21 days.
After that doses would be tapered down.
Complete treatment would take a minimum of 3 month.
Missing doses or not following treatment properly may result in resistance in bacteria.
Once 3 month course is complete a breath test would be done to see if H.pylori is completely eradicated or not.
All these medicines are easily available in Oman.
Hope I was helpful
Feel free to follow up,
Thanks for ur reply
U have wrote to me there are two opetions for me for the h.pilory treatment one of them
Was doing the sensitivity test
The other option I could not read it because could not find it
Ask your doctor to move to second line drug therapy with Rifabutin plus metronidazole plus levofloxacin and Rabeprazole for a minimum of 21 days and then check breath test every week for 2 weeks to see if infection is there or not.
