I'm using Pylokit consisting of lansoprazole, clarithromycin and tinidazole for treatment of H.pylori infection however I am also a PKD patient. I found out that lansoprazole is a kidney toxic drug, so please advise me a better substitute. Regards.

Dear lybrate-user, hi Welcome to Lybrate.com I have evaluated your query thoroughly.* The Pylokit is for 7 - 14 days, in that consumption it is not going to alter any of the renal functions, in PKD patients, lansoprazole on long term basis is causing issues only. Hope this clears your query. Regards dear take care.

Hi, I Would like to know more about heligo medicine, as I have seen that it is a sexual disease, what might be the main effect of the disease? Does it cure also ulcers?

No, your information is not correct. This medicine is for peptic ulcer disease. Heligo 500 mg/250 mg/30 mg kit is a combination of three medicines: tinidazole, clarithromycin and lansoprazole. Tinidazole is an antibiotic which kills the bacteria and other microorganisms that cause infections by damaging their dna. Clarithromycin is also an antibiotic. It stops bacterial growth by preventing the synthesis of essential proteins required by the bacteria to carry out vital functions. Together, they treat your infection effectively. Lansoprazole is a proton pump inhibitor (ppi) which reduces the amount of acid in the stomach and prevents acid-related indigestion and ulcers.

Have you tried changing your diet along with the medication? Are there any other symptoms you are experiencing? H pylori usually causes gastritis and ulceration. In most cases, taking antacids helps with the symptoms. Long term unhealed ulcers may shape up to become cancerous. Having an endoscopy done and if required a biopsy is not harmful.

Hello Ms. lybrate-user you have mentioned as hpyloi infection I hope you underwent upper gi endoscopy to confirm the diagnosis because proofing with rapid urease test or with biopsy or with the i-scan we do here is must to confirm h.pylori induced gastritis and you say there is constipation associated which is also a significant symptom hpylori treatment is for 2+4 6 weeks treatment you can not stop in between for constipation and ?fissure take high fiber diet laxatives - syp looz 15 ml morning and night sitz bath (take luke warm water with betadine 1cup in a tub and sit over it immersing your anus morning and night) use anovite oint for local application into your anal canal! but pls get evaluated for h pylori.

Hello there, This is Nasrat, 29 years old, I`m suffering form depression since last four years while I have last my beloved brother. So, I took different kinds of medications such as fluoxetine 20 mg, escitalopram 10 mg, paroxetine 10 mg, mirtazapine USP 15 mg, venlafaxine Hcl 75 mg, Lithium carbonate B.P. 400 mg etc. But still I have the same problem, difficulty in thinking (poor concentration, poor memory), excessive feel of guilt, loss of interest in most activities, sleep disturbances, decreased energy or tiredness, feeling of low self confidence, feeling of hopelessness, decrease in activity, excessive or inappropriate worries, anticipation of the worst, thoughts of suicide. Besides, I have premature ejaculation and no sexual desire. So, I`m really disappointed. Are there any solution for my problems? Its mentionable that when I was in Japan, I took Lorazepam (0, 5 mg), Brotizlolam (0, 25 mg), Trazodone (25 mg), Suvorexant (20 mg), Escitalopram (10 mg), Lansoprazole (15 mg) for 8 months, with those medications I felt very well, but unfortunately, when I returned to my country, there were no those medications available, and my depression attacked me again. So, dear doctors Please please please recommend me what to do? I`m not interested to live in this world but, I`m the only person to support my big family. At the same time, I took (Clarithromycin 500 mg, Amoxicillin 1000 mg 14 days), (Lansoprazole 30 mg 3 months) for positive h pylori but did not work. Again, I took (Clarithromycin 500 mg, metronidazole, Amoxicillin 1000 mg 14 days), (esomeprazole 40 mg 3 months) for positive h pylori but still I have the same issue. Your cooperation would be highly appreciated. Thank you so much in advance.

Dear lybrate-user, You need a proper diagnosis before going in for treatment. If h pylori is confirmed, it needs active treatment. Premature ejaculation and loss of sexual desire also needs to be diagnosed and treated. At Japan, you were treated with Lorazepam (available in India). Instead of brotizolam, you can try etizolam available in India. Trazodone available in India. Suvorexant is another mild hypnotic. You don't need so many hypnotic and anxiolytic. Lorazepam or etizolam will do. Escitalopram is available in India. Instead of Lansoprazole, esomeprazole has been given to you. All that you need to know, what is the type of depression that you are suffering. If it is bipolar type, Lithium carbonate type of mood stabiliser will work on you. It depends on the effective blood level dose (0.8 - 1.2) not just 400 mg. If it major depressive disorder, you need antidepressants like" fluoxetine 20 mg, escitalopram 10 mg, paroxetine 10 mg, mirtazapine USP 15 mg, venlafaxine Hcl 75 mg" But all are in starting dose. It needs to be built after 2-3 weeks depending on the improvement and side effects. If it is mixed anxiety depression disorder, you need to add etizolam to the antidepressant. I would suggest second opinion with all your reports of h pylori and endoscopy, hormonal tests and Japan doctors diagnosis and prescriptions.

Is clarithromycin good for stomach ulcer. How to take this medicine for ulcer and how many days.
Stomach ulcers are usually caused by helicobacter pylori bacteria or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. These can break down the stomach's defense against the acid it produces to digest food. The stomach lining then becomes damaged causing an ulcer to form. Let's discuss your concern in detail so that we can provide you a good quality medication plan and best advice.
