HP-Pac Description

Are you bothered by nausea, decreased appetite, feeling bloated, and have excessive burping? Your doctor may recommend testing for bacteria known as helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) that cause the majority of ulcers. These spiral-shaped bacteria usually infect your stomach as a child when hygiene is not as important as toys or play-time. It’s estimated that around 10% of those with H. pylori infection, will develop a peptic ulcer that can cause pain, burning, and interfere with your sleep. HP-Pac (Prevpac) contains three separate medications that can help relieve your discomfort.

How These 3 Active Ingredients Work

Lansoprazole is a proton pump inhibitor that suppresses a molecule (proton pump) in certain stomach cells to stop the production of acid secretion into your stomach. Once the acid level is lowered, Clarithromycin and Amoxicillin kill the bacteria and help heal the ulcer. Once this lesion is healed, your stomach acid will not be able to irritate the stomach lining. HP-Pac also works for reducing your risk of another occurrence of a duodenal ulcer, which is an ulcer at the beginning of your small intestine.

Helicobacter Pylori Information

For the most part, H. pylori go about their business and don’t make much of a nuisance of themselves. Once they have found their way into your stomach, they adapt to their acidic surroundings by changing the environment to make it friendlier. Due to the bacteria’s spiral-shape, they can easily infiltrate the lining of your stomach and set up shop where they have the protection of mucus and your immune cells are not able to reach them.

The bacteria are able to hinder your body’s immune response further to increase their chance of survival, but this can lead to stomach problems. It’s believed that the bacteria produce substances to neutralize the stomach acid once they have infiltrated your stomach’s mucus lining. The stomach acid and H. pylori cause irritation in your stomach lining and could result in sores or peptic ulcers in your stomach or the first part of your small intestine.

Before HP-Pac is Prescribed

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding before taking HP-Pac to avoid possible health risks to your unborn or nursing baby. Explain other medical conditions or allergies to your doctor and list any current OTC or Rx drugs you take or use, including herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements to determine if HP-Pac is safe for you to take.

HP-Pac Precautions

Do not operate a vehicle, machinery, or perform any task that requires you to be alert as HP-Pac can cause drowsiness. You should not consume alcohol while undergoing treatment with HP-Pac as this may cause an increased risk of side effects. Do not share HP-Pac or any medications with anyone, even if that person has the same symptoms as you. Birth control pills may be less effective while taking HP-Pac so use a non-hormonal backup form of birth control, such as a condom.
