Consult your doctor about antibiotics to get rid of H. pylori, as antibiotics may also make the symptoms worse. Exterminating the bacteria can decrease the symptoms of this condition. Amoxicillin (Amoxil) is one of medications for eliminating H. pylori.
Acid suppressing medications

Several popular medications of PPIs in the U.S. include Nexium (ezomeprazole), Prevacid (lansoprazole), and Prilosec (omeprazole). H2 blockers include Zantac (ranitidine) and Tagamet (cimetidine).

Avoid physical and emotional stress
