- Amoxicillin and Clarithyromycin are broad spectrum antibiotics aimed at killing/eradicating the Helicobacter pylori bacterium that causes “ulcers”
- Esomeprazole 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.
