Good Evening All,

I was diagnosed with Heliocobater Pylori (stomach infection) and was given Amoxicillin (comes with an antacid). My GI told me to stop my symbicort because of a warning that came up on the prescription. My symbicort ha helped with my asthma control and I'm a boy anxious to get off it even if its only for 2 weeks.

Has anyone taken these medications simultaneously and if so what were the effects?
Does anyone know if my Asthma symptoms will flare up because of the lack of symbicort?

First and foremost, your asthma comes before anything else. You should talk to your pulmonologist and see if there is an alternative to the amoxicillin that you can take.

Red_34 I did ask and all he said was to get off it but that if I have a flare up to stop taking the antibiotic and countinue the Symbicort. Asked for any alternative and he said all antibiotics that can cure my infection will come with that warning.
