The Heligo Kit for eradication of Helicobacter pylori is manufactured by Intas Pharmaceuticals. The set contains 2 tabs of Tinidazole 500mg, 2 tabs of Clarithromycin 250mg and 2 capsules of Lansoprazole 30mg. This kit is available for purchase online from ePharmacy Kenya and should be used only as prescribed by the physician or pharmacist or according to the prescription.
- Tinidazole and Clarithyromycin are anti-protozoa antibacteria and broad spectrum antibiotics respectively aimed at killing/eradicating the Helicobacter pylori bacterium that causes “ulcers”
- Lansoprazole is a proton pump inhibitor and it’s role is to stop the excess production of acid by the human body. While the body releases more acid to try and kill the bacteria, this acid erodes the stomach lining and causes painful episodes.
Intas’ Pylokit H. Pylori treatment kit can be used by anyone, but is more usable for those who are allergic to Amoxicillin and can not use the other available kits in Kenya
