Hi there
It depends on how long the antibiotics have been prescribed. The medication should start to work within a week to 10 days. Remember that the H. Pylori has probably been in your stomach for a while, and it will take some time to get rid of it entirely, but the antibiotics will help. If the side effects of the medication are unbearable, then go back to the doctor to hear if there is an alternative. Good luck and I hope that you feel better soon.
