|H. Pylori treatment
Jan 3, 2004
Is dual or triple eradication regimen for H.Pylori most appropriate for an HIV pos individual. Which antibiotics would you use?
| Response from Dr. Pierone
Studies have shown that in general, triple therapy is more effective for Helicobacter infection. I tend to use whatever samples I have in the medication closet (we are all just pawns of big pharma). Actually, combination with about any proton pump inhibitor (prilosec, protonix, prevecid), with amoxicillin, and clarithromycin (Biaxin) for 2 weeks is highly effective. For those with penicillin allergy, metronidazole can be substituted for amoxicillin.
