Im pretty sure the doctor knows what he's doing....all the medications will work together to clear up the infection....and you have one antibiotic, one antifungal, and one stomach medication....not two antibiotics....make sure you do NOT take alcohol while taking that flagyl (metronidazole)....Im very serious!!

If, in fact, there is amoxicillin in said medication, it will decrease implanon's effectiveness. However, in my brief research I did not find that omeprazole is an antibiotic at all. Its always a good idea to double check with a doctor when it comes to combining medications in the first place. Answered by Joanna Patock 6 months ago.
First of all, Omeprazolis absolutely 100% NOT Amoxocillin or Clarithromycin. Amox and Clarith are antibiotics, Omeprazole is an acid reducer pill. We have several classes of acid-reducing drugs and each of those classes have a number of different drugs that have very similar mechanism of action. For example Ranitidine or Famotidine reduce acid by blocking H2 receptors in your stomach so we put this class of acid-reducing drugs that are called H2-receptor blockers. Omeprazole reduces acid by blocking/inhibiting Proton Pumps in your stomach so we put them under the class of acid-reducing drugs called PPI's (Proton Pump inhibitors). Now as far as implants...what kind of implants are you talking about? Dental implants? Breast implants? Kidney implants? Heart? Liver?! Answered by Katherina Bullis 6 months ago.

While you can get omeprazole over the counter, you can't get antibiotics over the counter (at least not in the USA), so self-treatments with these is not possible. It's not a good idea to take antibiotics unless positive you have a bacterial infection of some sort anyway. You could try taking the omeprazole as directed--if your problems do not improve in 2 weeks, it's time to see a doc. IN the mean time, avoid overly fatty or acidic foods like coffee, soda, citrus, tomato, vinegar, etc. Eat small meals and remain upright for 2 hours or so after eating. Answered by Kenyatta Blachowski 6 months ago.
You should be careful with self-medication. GERD (Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease) occurs when the acidic contents of your stomach frequently flow back into your esophagus. The delicate lining of your esophagus can become irritated leading to a burning pain or, in more severe cases, an erosion of the esophagus. GERD can also damage other organs that are nearby such as the bronchial tubes. The bronchial tubes lead directly to the lungs so any reflux could cause irritation leading to wheezing, shortness of breath, and coughing. On the other hand, if reflux reaches into your throat, you may experience a sore throat, hoarseness, or even difficulty swallowing. Answered by Telma Streller 6 months ago.
I have developed adult onset eczema. Ive gone from being able to use any kind of soap or lotion to having to be very mindful of not only what type of soap and lotion I use but also having to buy specific laundry detergent, be mindful of how much time I expose my skin to water and make sure its not too hot. I even watch what I eat by making sure I eat organic for the most part, drink lots of water, and stay away from fast food. Its very embarrassing developing dry, scaly, red patches and it has been frustrating to deal with, especially in the summer. Answered by Alisia Granizo 6 months ago.
there wont be side effects unless you are allergic. did you and your friend eat off same dishes? h pylori is catchy. its best to see a doctor to make sure what it is, and if you are over it. the test for h pylori does not involve an endoscope. where will you get the meds?

Looks like they're trying to get rid of H. pylori bacteria in your stomach that is responsible for ulcers. The omeprazole goes on for longer as it decreases your acid production which is attempt to help the heartburn feeling and abdo pain. The three together are a triple therapy often used for this purpose. Unless you have an allergy to a particular antibiotic, there is usually little problem with this regimen.

Am I sensitive to antibiotics, feeling sick!!?
I've been taking amoxicillin, omeprazole and clarithromycin to help treat a peptic stomach ulcer. I am on the 4th day of taking them and I feel pretty sick. I have on and off abdominal, back and headaches. Is this normal for these meds? could I just be sensitive to them?
Asked by Tien Droke 6 months ago.
yes, generally it could be the side affects to some of the medicine. The best way to find out is to call your local pharmacy. I usually call walgreens 24 hours pharmacist when I need to know something about what Im taking and how its making me feel. I recommend you do the same. :) Answered by Jordon Cornick 6 months ago.
How is it that your medicine can make you feel sick, isn't it the first rule of thumb for a doctor "first do no harm"?. why put your trust in this person, do you feel better, do you think you are being healed perhaps you need and alternative? natural cures and remedies for natural bodies. The human body is sensitive to all that is not natural to the human body, like chemicals under the guise of pharmaceuticals, just like the anti-biotics.

What does H. Pylori "eat" and how would you starve it?
Asked by Milan Astrup 6 months ago.
Short answer, you can't starve it, because its life-cycle depends on a complex chemical process, and not just one particular "food source". Long answer; H. pylori produces large amounts of the enzyme urease, molecules of which are localised inside and outside of the bacterium. Urease breaks down urea (which is normally secreted into the stomach) to carbon dioxide and ammonia. The ammonia is converted to ammonium by accepting a proton (H+), which neutralises gastric acid. The survival of H. pylori in the acidic stomach is dependent on urease. TREATMENT The standard first-line therapy is a one week "triple therapy" consisting of proton pump inhibitors such as omeprazole, lansoprazole and the antibiotics clarithromycin and amoxicillin.

Rebeprazole+amoxicillin+cyrith... is effected threapy for hpylori or not?
Asked by Shantel Zubrzycki 6 months ago.
Here is a helpful extract from the Wiki: "Once H. pylori is detected in patients with a peptic ulcer, the normal procedure is to eradicate it and allow the ulcer to heal. The standard first-line therapy is a one week "triple therapy" consisting of proton pump inhibitors such as omeprazole, lansoprazole and the antibiotics clarithromycin and amoxicillin. Variations of the triple therapy have been developed over the years, such as using a different proton pump inhibitor, as with pantoprazole or rabeprazole, or replacing amoxicillin with metronidazole for people who are allergic to penicillin. Such a therapy has revolutionized the treatment of peptic ulcers, and has made a cure to the disease possible; previously, the only option was symptom control using antacids, H2-antagonists or proton pump inhibitors alone. An increasing number of infected individuals are found to harbour antibiotic-resistant bacteria. This results in initial treatment failure and requires additional rounds of antibiotic therapy or alternative strategies, such as a quadruple therapy, which adds a bismuth colloid, such as bismuth subsalicylate. For the treatment of clarithromycin-resistant strains of H. pylori, the use of levofloxacin as part of the therapy has been suggested. An article in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found evidence that "ingesting lactic acid bacteria exerts a suppressive effect on Helicobacter pylori infection in both animals and humans," noting that "supplementing with Lactobacillus- and Bifidobacterium-containing yogurt (AB-yogurt) was shown to improve the rates of eradication of H. pylori in humans."

Operative Report: Procedure Performed:EGD (esophagogastroduodenoscopy) with biopsy. Adequate conscious sedation was achieved using Demerol and Versed. The patient was placed in the left lateral decubitus position. The videoscope was placed in the posterior pharynx under direct visualization, esophagus intubated, the scope was advanced down the esophagus into the stomach, and the gastric pool was aspirated and then advanced into the duodenum. Upon withdrawal the duodenum appeared normal. As I withdrew back into the stomach just below the incisura (notch) there appeared to be a large ulcer that at first glance appeared to be perforated. The scope was gingerly advanced and there was bleeding at the site. A BICAP probe was used to cauterize this with good hemostasis. The scope was gingerly advanced through the opening and on advancement of the scope I was back in the duodenum. There did not appear to be any evidence of perforation. The scope was withdrawn back into the stomach. There was not further bleeding. Biopsy was taken from the antrum for CLOtest (to rule out H. pylori infection). Retroflexion to the proximal stomach showed a moderate sized hiatal hernia. The scope was withdrawn back into the esophagus, which appeared normal and subsequently withdrawn from the patient. She tolerated the procedure well. Questions: 6.Explain in physiological terms why the physician chose to discontinue her aspirin for now. (2) 7.Why did they test for H. pylori? In addition to the cautery that was performed, what would the treatment be if the patient has H. pylori infection? (2) 8.Explain in anatomic terms what a hiatal hernia is. (1) 9.Explain in physiological terms how/why the H2 blocker would help this patient. (2) 10.Explain in physiological terms how/why a transfusion will help this patient. (2) Impression: 1.Bleeding prepyloric gastric ulcer, status post Bipolar Circumactive Probe (BICAP) cautery, biopsy pending for Helicobacter phylori with endoscopic appearance of fistula (opening) between the pylorus and duodenum. 2.Hiatal hernia Plan: Transfuse packed red blood cells, IV H2 blockers, keep NPO (nothing by mouth), gastrografin study to insure that there is not free perforation (radiologic exam – ask Ann about), check CLOtest and if positive treat with appropriate antibiotics. Hospital Course: Shortly after initiation of transfusion patient states “I feel itchy all over!” The smart nurse calls the physician, who orders the transfusion stopped and a redo crossmatch of the blood. Redo crossmatch reveals compatible blood. The physician orders premedication of the patient with Benadryl and resumption of the transfusion. A total of 2 units packed red blood cells are given. Hemoglobin is 7.3 after the first unit and 10.7 after the second. Patient is discharged 24 hours post transfusions in stable condition. Questions: 11.Name a possible reason why the patient felt “itchy”. (1) 12. Why did the physician order a redo crossmatch? (1) In this case the donor unit was compatible. But let’s say the donor unit was not compatible according to the crossmatch results. This would mean that the __________ in the recipient’s plasma would be binding to the __________ of the donor cells causing lysis of the donor cells. (2) 13. Why did the physician order Benadryl, and why will it help this patient? You may need to look up the action of Benadryl to answer this. (2) Answered by Lessie Gunto 6 months ago.
6. Aspirin can cause increased bleeding diathesis. Since the patient has a bleeding ulcer, aspirin would be contraindicated. 7. H. pylori is a etiological factor for peptic ulcer. If present, it should be treated to minimize future ulcer formation. There are different treatments (drugs used)...one regime is the triple-therapy consisting of a PPI (proton pump inhibitor) like omeprazole, and antibiotics amoxicillin, and clarithromycin. 8. In a hiatal hernia, a part of the stomach and the esophagus (or in some cases, just a part of the stomach) that should be below the diaphragm pushes up and into the chest (above the diaphragm). 9. H2 blocker, like a PPI, reduces acidity which helps prevent ulcer formation and allows better healing of ulcers. 10. since the patient had a bleeding ulcer, they would have lost blood...the transfusion is to replenish that loss. You will notice at the end, that the patient's hemoglobin wen up to 7.3 after the first unit, and a more respectable 10.7 after the second unit. This means that the patient was very anemic prior to the transfusions. 11. Possible allergic reaction...I don't remember for certain...will let you know if I can figure it out (I just can't put my finger on the exact mechanism and pathway). 12. ....antibody in the recipient's plasma would be binding to the antigen of the donor cells... 13. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is an anti-histamine....which would reduce the itching. Answered by Jamal Sickels 6 months ago.

Bitter taste in mouth is not an uncommon problem. Many people suffer from lingering bitter taste in mouth that is quite irritating most of the times. It makes one insensitive to other tastes except the bitter taste. Having such a bad taste can also lead to loss of desire to have food. The unpleasantness in the mouth is quite disgusting and can worsen if not cured. There are many reasons why a person would develop bitter taste in mouth.
