Welcome to Just Answer..

H Pylori eradication requires treatment with 3 drugs simultaneously....Different combinations can be used for Eradication of H.Pylori are approved by FDA...

These include ;

1. OAC (omeprazole, amoxicillin, and clarithromycin) for 10 days

2. BMT (bismuth subsalicylate, metronidazole, and tetracycline) for 14 days

3. LAC ( lansoprazole, amoxicillin, and clarithromycin) for 10 days to 14 days

You have been prescribed LAC regimen...If this is beyond your affordibility, you can check the 1st or the 2nd combination for their cost....BMT regimen will be cheaper one but you have to check the exact price...

Also its important to note that no home remedy has been found to be effective against H Pylori, as not significant data suggest these for Eradication...Also the cost of complications of H Pylori is far much than the original eradication therapy...Therefore i will suggest you to follow evidence based medicine as mentioned earlier, and stop wasting your time and money for alternate treatment for H Pylori Eradication...

I hope i have been helpful...

Kindest Regards...
