Amox Clav 875mg tablets - Almost 4 months on same Antibiotic - Building Resistance?
Hello - My Husband has been taking Amox Clav 875 2 x per day for almost 4 months. He has diabetic pressure ulcers on his feet that are healing very slowly. We are going for a liver transplant in a few months and I am concerned that he could be building up a resistance to this drug? Can that happen? Should I rotate him onto another antibiotic for the next few weeks until this heals? Thank you so much for help!!! ## Hello, Michelle! How are you and your husband? It would be best to continue taking the one that has been prescribed by his doctor. It is later, such as when he has surgery, that they will be concerned with using a different one, if an antibiotic is needed. This medication may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything ...

Can Metformin Be The Cause Of Burning Sensation While Urinating I Recntly Notice This After Starting A Strip And Went To Doctor For It N She
i started taking a strip of metformi 500 because i want to get pregnant,a couple days after i notice i had a burning sensation when passing urine so i went to the doctor who then said i have uti and she prescribed norilet 400mg but the burnig is still here so am wondering if metformin is anyway responsible. ## No, that isn't something that Metformin is known to cause. Learn more Metformin details here. It is likely a UTI as your doctor stated and you may need to return for another antibiotic if the one that was prescribed hasn't worked. Learn more Norilet details here. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Over the years I would occasionally have moments where I needed to urinate but not much at all came out and it was accompanied by a burning sensation. I've been pr...

How to take metformin 500mg tab her
When is the best time to take it? Can you take it with meal? ## Hello, Andrea! How are you? You should take it as directed by your doctor. Usually, it should be taken just before a meal, so it has the chance to start working to control your blood sugar, by the time you are digesting your food and will experience the most fluctuations. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, flatulence and hypoglycemia. Is there anything else I can help with?
