PREVPAC: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Helicobacter Pylori Infection “Given Prevpac for H. Pylori. Within 48 hrs of ending the full course of medication I experienced an anaphylactic reaction. Large, round, flat hives formed on the soft of my arms and inner thighs. My hands began to swell, and then I felt my face begin to swell. The swelling moved from left to right across my face, and it eventually began to close my throat and enlarge my tongue. My husband drove me to an urgent care center where I received a shot of Kenalog and a Medrol dose pack. I always list Prevpac as a medicine of which I am allergic.”

For Helicobacter Pylori Infection “I started the pack this evening. Within half an hour of taking the 4 pills, followed by a complete healthy dinner, my throat tightened up. Couple minutes later I started to glow and had a warm sensation all over. This turned to an aggressive itch and after about another 5 or so minutes I had trouble breathing. The skin sensation turned into an unbearable burning sensation all over. I ended up on the floor and my wife called 911. Paramedics came, blood pressure and pulse went OTT. Paramedics thought it was a allergic reaction, gave me benedril to counter the effect and about 15 minutes later my throat started to relax, the glow and red skin started to subside and he itching and tingling started to calm down. Better luck next time.”

For Helicobacter Pylori Infection “Don’t be afraid to take the PrevPac for h. pylori. I have suffered for a month with pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. I’m on only day 3 of a 14 day treatment and I am almost back to my old self again! Many people complain about the side effects, but all I have experienced is a slight metal taste in my mouth at times – so worth being almost well.”

For Helicobacter Pylori Infection “I am on triple therapy for 14 days, second time in 2 years. I’m 5th day in. First 3 were brutal. I couldn’t even dress myself was too weak. My inside feel tender but I’m not as tired can work and sleep. My question is I have that metallic taste and now my tongue is light grey. Anyone experience this?”

Second time (taken for less than 1 month) June 27, 2017

For Helicobacter Pylori Infection “I had bad reflux, night nausea and heartburn for nearly 7 months before being diagnosed with an endoscopy. Only on Day 3 of therapy (Amoxicillin, Clarithromycin, and Omeprazole). Side Effects : Mild nausea, no strange taste, but I do get thirsty and I have had quite bad stomach pain (bloating, gas etc) and back pain. I was also very scared to take these meds after reading all the comments but so far so good. Most annoying thing is having to take so many meds at one time! Hoping I have no new side effects. I do take a probiotic and anti nausea pills twice per day with the antibiotics and I do take the antibiotics with food. I really hope that after the 14 days I am cured as I don’t want to have to do this again!”

For Helicobacter Pylori Infection “I am not fond of meds, so I wasted 3 months doing Dr Google on natural approaches.It didn’t work, as I continue having stomach pain, reflux, bloated, etc. On desperation I went to the doctor and he confirmed I had HP.I’m on day 6, and feel miserable with the side effects. Insomnia, high pulse rate, stress,etc.However my gut seems to be better. Can eat better. I will take the probiotics, seems to help.Good luck”
