Pentocid should be taken after appropriate investigations are done by your physician and biopsy
and urease test done to rule out H.pylori involvement, in which case your physician will prescribe a short antibiotic course for eradication of H.pylori along with Pentocid. Usually the Pentocid is prescribed for short term usually from 4 to 8 weeks depending on the severity of the condition as assessed on endoscopy
. Hope this clarifies. Regards.
