Post Anyone PrevPac and H. Pylori

No one is answering my other post so I figured I'd ask a quicker question. Is there anyone who had H. Pylori who took Prevpac for 14 days with mild to no side effects and is absolutely fine now? Looking for a bit of an optimistic outlook here. Based on the other posts I read here, it seems like they never got cured, they were ill for months, unable to function and I am getting scared.

In about 90% of the cases for h.pylori the antibiotics will knock it out .There are some ppl who can be resistent to one or more of the antibiotics in the prevpac.Me being one of them i think.There are some doctors who will not treat you for it unless you are having somekind of symptoms.There are many ppl who carry the infection who show no symptoms.The problem with this infection is sometimes it can cause and ulcer.Thats usually why a doctor will treat it if there are symptoms.
