Pause in treatment

Post by Maria »

I felt very discouraged because of side effects, after 1 week of treatment. I interrupted my treatment yesterday ( Bismuth, Metronidazole, Tetracycline and Pantoprazol).

It's not a common side effect that you are experiencing. But if you feel that it's affecting your breathing, you should talk to your doctor immediately.

7 days is ok.
stopped antibiotic for 1 and a half day is fine also.

if you really cannot finish the antibiotics because of the breathing issue, it's ok. There are other alternatives. But the protocol is to wait 2-4 weeks, get another breath test done and see if you are lucky enough to get rid of HP with a 7-8 days treatment.
