    Yes I had it about 15 years ago and had the triple therapy 2 types of antibiotic and an Omeprazole (an acid suppressant). Treatment was for 2 weeks, well tolerated and I haven't had a re-occurrence.

    Thank you. Thats the same treatment I've been prescribed. Unfortunately the pharmacist scared me by telling me I would feel very ill while on the treatment. So I've been expecting the worst!

    My wife had it. Took antibiotics, PPIs. She pushed through and got better.

    I tested positive for it back in December. The treatment for it was fine, but I've had stomach ache since so waiting on an endoscopy to see what's going on. Make sure you get it rechecked 4 weeks after you've finished your PPI to make sure it's been eradicated.

    I think the antibiotics cause havoc with the stomach especially if one has IBS.
    But I do wonder now whether my IBS is actually just symptoms of the Helicobactor.
    I suppose time will tell
