Treatment for H. pylori can include:

  • antibiotics to kill the bacteria
  • medications to suppress acid production, including:
  • H2-blockers, to reduce the amount of acid the stomach produces by blocking
  • histamine, a powerful stimulant of acid secretion.
  • proton pump inhibitors, to more completely block stomach acid production by stopping the stomach's acid pump
