generally we would encourage patients to finish the antibiotics if the side effect is mild.
patient will have to stop antibiotics if the side effect is too severe. such as vomit, rashes, cant wake up from bed, difficulty walking, breathing, etc.

clarithromycin is usually quite safe. talk to your doctor about your concern.

Is he on standard triple therapy? if he is, i dont think it's the side effect of the antibiotics. If he is on quadruple therapy, which antibiotics are he taking at the moment?

I think irregular heart beat is not a common side effect of the antibiotics. Anyway, seeing a cardiologist is a good idea.
Hello!

I'm back.

It's July and my fiancé has still tested positive for HP. (stool test)

He took a second opinion and this second GI advised him to take Clarithromycin, Amoxicillin and Pantoprazole for 10 days instead of 14 days (as prescribed by first doctor).

Day 2 of triple therapy and so far (knock on wood) no adverse symptoms like the first one, albeit some weird taste in his mouth after drinking the medicine. (which is expected)

His question is, is it ok to drink all three pills on one go or should there be a gap in between pills? He would drink pills with 15mins gap between pills as he was not sure if he could drink all three in one time (like one would drink vitamins). Does putting a gap between drinking pills make a difference?

Thank you for the feedback.

There is no difference taking the pill all at once or separately.
Most important is to spread out the time evenly when taking the pills. For example. if Amoxicillin is asked to take 3 times a day, then take it every 8 hours. If Clarithromycin is asked to take 2 times a day, then take it every 12 hours.

This is to make sure that the concentration of the antibiotics are maintained in the blood stream.
