 3  H.Pylori infection again This is my second time trying this drug within two years, my H. Pylori has returned. My symptoms are terrible, they started right after the first dose with a disgusting horrible taste in my mouth, bloating, pain, exhaustion & nausea -- too many to list. Going to try to push through and finish, to hopefully, get rid of the stupid infection once and for all. I take a probiotic 2 hours after dose, hopefully it will help some. F 52 14 days

 2  H pylori Stomach unease, slight vomiting, anxiety/insomnia, bro this sh*t woopin my ass Tested positive for h pylori so I had to do PREVPAC, worst part of my life tbh. The stomach uneasiness makes it extremely hard to sleep and I've started feeling more anxious than usual. And I cant eat much without cannabis, as well as shaking through the night with tremors/anxiety unable to fall asleep. Gosh it feels like hell. Typing this now as my first dose of the day kicks my stomach in half. M 18 5 days

 4  H Pylori infection I finished the prevpac yesterday. I was on 14 days treatment due to H pylori infection And during the treatment I did not have any side effects during taking the meds and my pain all gone and I was happy that now I'm cured .

I'm scared that the bacteria still there ? I really don't know . I appreciate If anyone can help with that And I'm waiting for the retest I hope the bacteria is gone F 45 14 days

 2  Hpylori Crushing headache, abdominal spasms, nausea, vomiting, horrible change in taste, full body weakness, shortness of breath when walking short distances, excess fatigue Saw my pcp for excess gas and abdominal spasms. Started the 14 day treatment. Ok first 4 days with only liking nausea and the awful change in taste. By day 5 I woke up with a crushing headache, nausea with vomiting, full body weakness, and shortness of breath walking short distances.

 5  h pylori stomach pain, needle pricks all over due to low iron caused by lack of digestion due to low acid caused by prevacid. also, tired, anxiety and elevated BP(with history of high bp). i felt terrible while on it but i feel like it saved my life. my stomach would feel like it was vibrating and also felt like fainting all due to an misdiagnosis. i was on antacid for months. kaiser permanete failed to check for h pylori and just threw antacids at the problem. the low iron was because of amount of time i was on prevacid, it keeps you from producing enough acid to break down the food wholly. what helps with food digestion while on agressive antacid regamine is pineapple juice. after the prevpac. normality returns within 6 minths to a year depending how much damage th h pylori bug caused. better to go through the 2 weeks of feeling miserable than to have a lifetime of problems. rough it out, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

 2  H. Pylori Feeling kinda lost and confused, dreamy like state a bit but in a bad way. Insomnia with anxiety and lea ding to panic attacks, also rising depression. This treatment is evil and I knew it was that's why I had put it off for a whole year as I did this for H. Pylori 10 years ago and I remembered how bad it was, except now the worse of side effects wasn't nausea and candida, it was god damn insomnia and anxiety and depression levels rising, even after treatment was over.

 3  H pylori/ acid reflux Metallic taste in mouth 24/7, occasional stomach cramps, constantly feeling hungry Been prescribed this treatment for 7 days. Day 1 I had no side effects apart from strong metallic taste. Just finished day 2 and I'm experiencing stomach cramps and gas in the guts (probably because I had pizza and chips). I get a growling stomach every now and again, not sure if it's down to hunger. I have high hopes for this drug, hope I can handle 7 days. The metallic taste bothers me a lot though. F 21 2 days
 1  H Pylori Headaches, chest pains, stomach pains, dizziness, extreme anxiety and depression, fatigue, insomnia.

 1  H.pylori UPDATE ON THE REVIEW POSTED YESTERDAY (10/10/16) SEVERE NAUSEA, MIGRAINE HEADACHE AND LOSS OF APPETITE, CANT SLEEP I am on day 5 of 7 AND AS OF TODAY I AM NOT TAKING THIS MEDICATION AGAIN. It is literally killing me, i am sat in bed day and night crying in pain (stomach, intestines, back), feeling nauseous and no appetite at all. I thought I was gonna be hospitalised this morning when I woke up with severe nausea and panging stomach pains. GP didn't do anything much either when I called, apart from upping my dose of Lansoprazole from 30MG to 40MG to relieve heartburn (which doesn't work) Im wasting my time and I'm going into serious depression and can't stop crying whenever I think about the medication! I've lost 4KG since starting this treatment due to my lack of appetite and I am just rotting away in bed. I need to physically eat but i physically can't! I'm literally like a sack of bones right now, and it's scaring me and making me depressed and suicidal I have uni and work to go to, but this medication has ruined my life and I can't even get out the house I'd rather suffer with acid reflux and h pylori than go through this murderous treatment!!! Stopped taking the medication today and I can still feel my stomach and intestines groaning in pain, going to sleep hoping I wake up feeling better. I will stick to home remedies from now on to cure my acid reflux, nausea and lack of appetite. Ruined my life F 20 7 days
 1  H.Pylori Nausea 95% of the time, severe abdominal and instestinal cramps, acid reflux, loss of appetite and weight, gas in digestive system that cant come out Worst 7 days of my life.... Worst medication I've ever taken, not sure it's even cured my H.pylori since it was so horrible. Combination of Lansoprazole, amoxicillin and metronidazole (or clarithromycin for some people) Im on day 5, too late to give up, im already at my worst so I'm going to carry on and hoping for the best.

 1  H Pylori/Ulcer Severe sharp pains in stomach, nausea, loss of appetite, dizziness after the 2nd day. Gas build up that i could not pass. I felt like i completely lost the ability to get food down after just the first dosage. Depression and anxiety seemed to come hand in hand with this. I could not finish the prevpac. I stopped eating completely. Food just got harder to swallow each time i took it. After the 4th day of not eating, i lost most strength in my legs. The stomach pain was so intense that it sometime spread to my chest. On day 4 i was taken to the hospital where they had to give me fluids and advised to stop the medication. About two months later i don't have heart burn anymore (before prevpac,my heartburn was intense), but my discomfort in my stomach never went away, now having bad digestive problems. I absolutely hated this medication. F 17 3 days

PREVPAC  (AMOXICILLIN; CLARITHROMYCIN; LANSOPRAZOLE; LANSOPRAZOLE):  This product is used to treat stomach/intestinal ulcers caused by the bacteria H. pylori and to prevent the ulcers from returning. Treating an ulcer reduces the risk of serious damage to the lining of the stomach/intestines (such as bleeding, tearing, blockage). Lansoprazole is known as a proton pump inhibitor (PPI). It works by blocking acid production in the stomach. Decreasing excess stomach acid can help the ulcer heal. Amoxicillin and clarithromycin are antibiotics used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections (including H. pylori). Treating the infection helps reduce the risk of the ulcer returning. Amoxicillin is a penicillin-type antibiotic and clarithromycin is a macrolide-type antibiotic. They work by stopping the growth of bacteria. The antibiotics in this product treat only bacterial infections. Antibiotics do not work for viral infections (such as common cold, flu). Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
