Hi,

Pantocid-HP is a combination of a proton pump inhibitor (lansoprazole) and two antibiotics (clarithromycin and amoxicillin) which is commonly prescribed to treat H. pylori infection. Its common side effects include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, metallic taste, flatulence and allergic reactions. It is quite effective if taken for 14 days. Continue taking it as prescribed.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
