Heligo 500 mg/250 mg/30 mg Kit is a combination of three medicines: Tinidazole, Clarithromycin and Lansoprazole. Tinidazole is an antibiotic which kills the bacteria and other microorganisms that cause infections by damaging the DNA. Clarithromycin is also an antibiotic which stops bacterial growth by inhibiting synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions. Together, they treat your infection effectively. Lansoprazole is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) which reduces the amount of acid in the stomach and prevents acid-related indigestion and ulcers.
