I was positive for h pylori with blood test been very unwell for couple of months now. Lack of appetite loosing weight sore head sore pain right side under ribs was put on metronidazole. Penicillin. Omprazole for 7 days and tbh I felt like I was going to die appetite got worse bad taste really sore tummy sore throat more acid than usual very weak body very sore. I have now finished the triple treatment and still feel really bad I am hoping it has got rid of h pylori infection as I don't think I could go through that again but all the things I have seen wrote about these drugs clearing it are really slim I was wondering if anyone has got there appetite back after the treatment thanks and good luck with this terrible bacteria.☺

I'm concerned by all of that as when I had duodenal ulcers, the nurse told me in no uncertain terms that I would be infected by H. pylori, they banded the ulcers and initiated their therapy of just a single antibiotic and pantoprazole. While I tested negative for any infection, the treatment was redundant, benign and I never suffered at all, unlike you are suffering at the moment.
Did you have an endoscopy to look at the state of your upper gastro intestinal tract? Something is not right and you need to see a different doctor (just take a list of meds you are taking and the dosage with you).
James; All said and done normally when you read about something like this therapy, The only ones that reply or post are the ones that were unhappy with the results the ones this helped rarely come on and tell people the results. Have you talked to the doctor yet about what you're dealing with now. I would say now that you have gone this far you should follow it through or at least get some answers from the doctor at what you are to expect now. Call the office today. And find out what you are supposed to expect and how you should be feeling because you feel the same. if that is the case. And if you're not happy with that then you have option 2 which is what Steven has said. Call as soon as possible and get this going. Chuck1957
