After a year on CAP using flagyl / biaxin/ doxy I started having seriouse throat issues..Went 9 months like this. I thought the antibiotics had created chronic gastritis. My throat, heart , chest.. All were burning.
I never checked H. Pylori as being the cause. After all I was using same antibiotics used for this parasite. Life was hell.
Asthma was gone but acid was killing me.
Had an endoscope. I had amazingly h pylori infection.
I have been reading that H. pylori can be resistent to flagyl and biaxon.
2 days into amoxycillon and tetracyclin and I am getting ok and much better.
Carefull people. Longterm cap probably kills good flora and allows resistent strains of h pylori to thrive.
keep an open eye to this possibility.
