He was then placed on salvage therapy with included another antibiotic, Levofloxacin, a PPI and amoxicillin for 10 days. At follow up the patient was completely symptom free. The patient was educated regarding possible continuation of PPI therapy to alleviate continuing symptoms. He was counseled to avoid NSAIDS, alcohol, spicy foods, smoking and to avoid lying down after eating (American Academy of Family Physicians [AAFP], 2015)
