The two Antibiotics had a terrible effect on me and made me really sick. The Nexium I have taken on and off for a few years and it has not caused any side effects.
I think it was the Clarathromycin and the Amoxillin which made you feel ill and not the
I wish you well and good luck with the treatment,
Hi, thanks for the reply. It looks like there was some sort of mixup with the medication, to make a long story short they told me NOT to take the Prevacid as there was a mixup. The doctor prescribed me the original medication and somehow the second time around Medicaid actually approved it! Extremely odd. I don't know how she did it.
Anyway the medication is called Pylera, it is taken in conjunction with Omeprazole for 10 days (rather then the 14 I had to do with prevacid) and only two bottles as opposed to the Prevacid and 3 other bottles that I had to take for 2 weeks.
Unfortunately based off of what I'm reading online side effects seem to be really brutal with this medication also. I'll see what happens within the next few days. Thanks for the reply and I hope everything will be alright.
