Welcome to Healthcaremagic,
Thanks for posting your query to this forum,
You have Acid peptic disorder and Dyspepsia with positive for Helicobacter Pylori, you need to take combination of antibiotics along with Pantoprazole.
This kit contains Pantoprazole,with two antibiotics amoxicillin and Clarithromycin may person can get diarrhoea with Amoxicillin that is why your antibiotics were stopped.
Please discuss with Physician amoxicillin can be replaced with Metronidazole for Triple therapy.
Remember you have to continue maintenance dose of PPI that is pantoprazole.
If you are still not cured then Quadruple therapy adding such as bismuth subsalicylate helps.
In gut health prebiotics and probiotics supplementation helps greatdeal in cases of dyspepsia.
It heals ulcers completely and prevents recurrence.
Take care
Good Luck
