I missed 3 of my pills so took them all together, I had 2nurofen's on top of that, is it bad? I didn't know what to do ## Hello, Kacey! How are you? Did you experience any adverse effects? You can't really overdose, so to speak, on an antibiotic. Though taking that many, at once, could worsen the side effects, which as listed by the FDA may include nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. However, you should consult your doctor to be sure, as you may need to take a longer course of it, or it could also have caused you to develop antibiotic resistant bacteria, so you may need to take a different one. Is there anything else I can help with?

glutaphos dosage ## i wanna know the dosage please..tnx ## This medication is unavailable in the U.S. and I am sorry to say that other countries do not regulate their prescription drugs as strictly as the FDA does. That said, finding information on them is very difficult, since there are no databases which list them all, like there are for U.S. prescription drugs. The only thing I can suggest is that you try asking your doctor or pharmacist for more information. ## i wanna know the disadvantages and advantages of taking the glutaphos tablet ## where can i get some so i can take my test ## im recently taking this medicine, but unfortunately it has a side effect of dizziness and headache to me so i stop taking.. ## it's really effective.

I took this drug in the 1970's while pregnant. Am looking for the side effects to the babies. Drug has been off the market for many years. Not sure on correct spelling. Used for nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. Thank you for any help you can send me. Sincerely, Dana Jones. ## Dana, The drug Bendictine you are referring to was reported to cause birth defects in some cases. But a similar drug is prescribed today and it's called Diclectin. Funny how some people will say to stay away from something while others say it's perfectly safe. I think it's a matter of speaking to at least several physicians and following your intuition, as far as what feels right for you and who you trust. The drug Diclectin is a combination of Doxylamine (an antihistamine) and Vitamin B6. A go...
