Hi there
i am on hPAC 10 days treating HPylori. I noticed that 4-5 days into treatment i got more saliva and acidic taste in my mouth. Can this be effect on aggressive antibiotic treatment? I wake up every morning with the mouth full of acid. I am about to finish the course. Not sure if the acid reflux gone away... i still feel tightness in my chest, sore throat and a lot of saliva and acidic taste. I guess the next step is to verify that HPylori is clear and then decide to stay or come off PPI?
Thanks for your opinions on advance

I have not been on that drug but other antibiotics played havoc on my heartburn. I would wake choking on acid coming up in my sleep. I had an awful taste in my mouth day and night. Meds can increase your GERD symptoms yes.
