Is cephalexin a penicillin antibiotic?
22 Replies RSS
IS IT A FORM of penicillen ? Can it be used for sinus infection ? ## Cephalexin is not a form of penicillin. I am allergic to penicillin, so I am given Cephalexin all the time. It can be used for a number of infections including sinus infections. Cephalexin is in a group of drugs called cephalosporin antibiotics and is used to fight bacteria in the body. It works by interfering with the bacteria's cell wall formation, causing it to rupture, and killing the bacteria. Cephalexin is used to treat infections caused by bacteria, including upper respiratory infections, ear infections, skin infections, and urinary tract infections. ## I have a penicillin alergy and was prescribed cephalexin. I broke out in a ash on my chest within a few hours of taking cephalexin. I waited a day and tried...

Fill Oxycodone In Ga

im in calhoun ga.... i need to fill my rx for 30mg oxycodone 120 count any suggestions?? ## I had been visiting a doctor in Cartersville and have been unable to reach his office this week for my 30mg oxicordone can you recommend a doctors office for me ## I need to find a new doctor somewhere near Atlanta, that can help me renew my 30mg oxicodone, I am having trouble trying to reach my clinic in Cartersville and I'm about to run out! Can anybody help me with a new clinic? ## My advice would be to make sure you aren't just calling the pharmacies to ask. If it's just a voice on the phone, they have no way of knowing whether or not you are a legitimate customer in need or a potential thief. Thus, most will just say that they don't stock any controlled substances. To get acc...

pill with 230 on one side and a wierd symbol on back
28 Replies RSS
i found this in my sons room and want to know what it is its round white with 230 on one side and a funny shape on back ## There is a light yellow, round tablet with the Alvogen logo and the numbers 230 on the opposite side that contains 10mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, a generic for Percocet, it is narcotic pain reliever. Learn more Percocet details here. Has this medication ever been prescribed for him? ## I am glad that your site showed this medication on the web, as I could not find it. I was told it was a generic for Percocet. 10-325, also known as oxycodone-acetamine 10-325. Even though this should have been very easy to find on all of the various pill/medication websites available, it was not. I myself have never seen this variation of Percocet 10/325, and was hesi...

harvoni side effects
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking Harvoni for 3 months now and am having nerve pain in my legs and lower back pain. Are anyone taking Harvoni having any of these same side effects as me? Please help if you are able. Thank you ## Hi Tony, From what I've researched, "lower back pain" is specifically listed as one of the more common side effects of Sofosbuvir (the second active ingredient in Harvoni); so I'd imagine that "leg pain" may be attributed to this drug as well. If you'd like a more concrete reference, "back pain" is also listed as a side effect of Sofosbuvir on Pubmed at: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25422576 That said, you may want to contact your doctor if the pain becomes too bothersome or severe. This way you and your doctor can determine if Harvoni is still r...

35 Replies RSS
I have been on 50 mcg of levothyroxine for 5 months and I have gained 15 pounds. My doctor tells me that it should be the opposite and that I should loose weight. Is this possible? Have any of you taking this drug has experienced the same? ## I was on 50mg for about 2 weeks and noticed I had gained 10 pounds. So I stopped taking it and gained another 15lbs. now my test showed me to be 5.9 and my new doctor put me on 15mg. She said this will help me loose weight that the 50mg wasn't strong enough to help me not gain the weight. ## I have gained 15 pounds on synthroid. It made me edgy and caused gastrointestinal problems. ## I also was on Levothyroxine 50 for a few months and gained 10 pounds and had severe constipation. My doctor told me not diet and take Metamucil. I felt sure it wa...

79 Replies RSS
Well I just really need to know if what I am doing is condsidered doctor shopping. I fell at at department store and injuryed my knee. Well i have to go to the doctor the lawyer sent me too. He prescribes pain meds for me, the only thing he can treat is my knee. I started having back problems. My primary care doctor sent me to a different doctor and he also gives me meds. But the pharmacy said they would call the doctors and tell on me. So I went and ahead and the doctors myself so that it would not look as bad. What do you think will happen to me? The pharmacy refused to give me back my prescription. Can they do that? ## Yes, when you are getting medications from more than one doctor, regardless of the condition, that is the very definition of doctor shopping. Logically, if one doctor ...
