Pylera for Ulcer of Duodenum caused by Bacteria Helicobacter Pylori: I have about four more days to finish this treatment. I have so much diarhea three to four times per day. Yellow urine and heart paps. I even have had shortness of breath. I will be so glad when I have finished this treatment and hope I never have to get back on this medication again.

Pylera for Ulcer of Duodenum caused by Bacteria Helicobacter Pylori: I am mid-way in the course of treatment so I cannot speak to the effectiveness. The case to organize and track the dosage is very helpful. However, I am experiencing maany of the side effects: dizziness, nausea, chills, bowel issues. This is unusual for me because I typically don't experience the potential side effects mentioned in any drug insert. I will finish the full course of treatment but this has not been fun.

Pylera for Ulcer of Duodenum caused by Bacteria Helicobacter Pylori: 4 days into the course, all side effects as described by others, BUT it's working. If you have not been running with ulcer, the side effects I'm experiencing is only 1/3 of the symptoms prior to the treatment. I know I have to hang in there, you too.

Pylera for Ulcer of Duodenum caused by Bacteria Helicobacter Pylori: I had an H Pylori treatment many years ago, but it was not so full of side effects. I have experienced every one of them. The 4 times a day dosing with all the foods and meds you can not have before or after is veyry troublesome. I know the ingredients in it are all generic in nature and very inexpensive, I feel this product is totally over priced. idea of combining the ingredients in one capsule but still it is outrageous.... medical plan.....

Pylera for Helicobacter Pylori Infection: I am finishing up my 7th day of the medication. Every website I have read made me extremely nervous about taking this medication. If I can give any advice, EAT A FULL MEAL BEFORE YOU TAKE THE MEDICATION! If you don't eat, you will be extremely nauseous and throw up. I hate forcing myself to eat, but if it prevents the nausea, I will do it. You need to eat 4 meals per day. DRINK PLENTY OF WATER ALL DAY!!!! The mornings are hard, because you do wake up nauseous, but the first thing I do is grab a bottle of water and drink some. I ended up with the darkened stool and diarrhea, but other than that everything has been going fine.

Pylera for Ulcer of Duodenum caused by Bacteria Helicobacter Pylori: I just had minor side effects; mild nausea at times, but I think it was because I did not eat enough. I had a couple mild headaches at first but not bad and could still work. The biggest side effect for me was just being very phsically tired. I am on day nine. It has been a pain to take the medicine every day but I really started to feel better on day three. I did drink lots of water with a cup of coffee in the morning.

Pylera for Ulcer of Duodenum caused by Bacteria Helicobacter Pylori: Well, I am in so much pain that the doctor has requested for me to only take it for 2 more days instead of 5 more days. The pains are very bad and I have had a headache since saturday. I have vomited, severe case of diarrhea, stomach cramps, back pain and very uncomfortable feeling. I literally cry all day cause of the pains. I missed one dose and was actually good, but I took the pills and the pains started again. I am miserable. Doctor can't put me on anything else since I am allergic to penicillin. I don't wish this on anyone.

Pylera for Helicobacter Pylori Infection: I don't really know how to rate a medicine; I just share my experience. My doctor warned me that this antibiotic is very harsh and I might feel bad during the course. However, I am taking it for 8 days, and the only side effect I encountered is a bitter taste in my mouth, but it's not a problem. I just drink a lot and chew gum when it gets REALLY bitter. I am of a slim and petite complexion (100 lb only), so I expected to have bad side effects, but I feel quite normal. Also I am eating well before taking medicines (more veggies), drink lots of water, take strong probiotics (50 billion), and drink organic KEFIR with live culture before going to bed and taking bedtime portion of Pylera.

Pylera for Ulcer of Duodenum caused by Bacteria Helicobacter Pylori: I'm not certain if this worked or not. I had no symptoms at all but tests came back showing I had a stomache infection. Taking three pills four times a day was a nuisance, I agree. Only side effect experienced was the dark stools. Also, I neglected to take the acid blocker. But my doctor said not to worry about that.

Pylera for Ulcer of Duodenum caused by Bacteria Helicobacter Pylori: I had severe side effects. After the 3rd dosage on day 1 I felt the tingling in my skin but ignored & continued the need. Day 2 I has hives all over my upper body & was directed to stop taking it. However the following day I my entire body was red & covered with bumps. Lips were swollen uncontrollable itching.7 days later still itching & bumping. This makes the dizziness,nausea,headaches & dark stool had not so bad. The word experience ! And waste of $.
