Hi! Since I posted this message I've completed 3 x 14 day rounds of Talicia. The side effects were minimal (less than what I experienced taking Pylera which contains that nasty metronidazole), my symptoms improved a good bit, and it's convenient to take in those bright orange-colored capsules.

However, even after taking 3x rounds of Talicia and many other PPI/antibiotics combo therapies, I'm still infected with H. Pylori. My symptoms persist and always worsen days/weeks after treatment ends.

I'm currently undergoing follow-up BreathTek urea breath tests (UBTs) and stool antigen tests as my GI specialist requires a positive result prior to prescribing additional rounds of treatment. So far, I'm having no luck turning up a positive test result even though I quit taking H. Pylori treatment (i.e. bismuth, PPIs, and antibiotics) back on January 1. What could I be doing wrong that might cause the UBTs and stool antigen tests to produce false negative results?
