What antibiotic is used to destroy Heliobacter pylori?
You can use amoxicillin, clarythromycin or tetracycline along with one of the imidazole like metronidazole, tinidazole or satronidazole.
Ulcers can be caused by a bacteria called Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). If this organism is present, the ulcer would be treated with a triple medication regimen; to include: Flagyl plus another antibiotic, antacids to neutralize acid in the stomach, a proton-pump inhibitor which will help heal an ulcer by decreasing acid production in the stomach, and Carafate which will coat an ulcer to allow it to heal.
Metronidazole is an antibiotic that is used commonly in the treatment of anaerobic bacteria, i.e. those that live in the absence of oxygen. It is sold as Flagyl and a number of other generic preparations and is a very useful antibiotic, also used in the elimination of H. pylori ulcer infections, the organism responsible for causing 90% of peptic ulcers. It affects amoeba by selectively targeting them, the organisms responsible for your condition.
(The word antibiotic is used as a noun to mean a drug that is used to treat bacterial infections. The adjective "antibiotic" is used to describe drugs or treatments that perform the same function.) Examples: "Penicillin is one type of antibiotic." "Antibiotic ointments are used to prevent cuts from becoming infected."
