So is it okay to continue having my morning cup of coffee? ## There isn't usually any problem.

13 YEAR OLD GRANDSON-EAR INFECTION
1 Reply RSS
Our grandson was prescribed the liquid pink Amoxicillin recently. He is 13 years old and quite capable of swallowing pills. Why would a doctor prescribe this method to someone this age? Also, when the doctor was told that the boy was leaving, the next day, on a trip and there was no way to refrigerate this med, we were told that he would get it in it's powdered form and it could be mixed with sterile water. WTH, why not just prescribe an antibiotic in pill form? I don't understand this kind of stupidity! ## The pills tend to taste horrible, so it is often easier to get a child of this age to swallow a flavored liquid. It doesn't mean the doctor is being stupid, but rather that they are trying to ensure the child will take all of it, as prescribed. The FDA lists its typical s...

For the past 15 years my mother used to take Pentids 800mg, but now the tablets are not available in markets.

Allergic to Metronidazole

Can I take Sulfamethoxazole if I'm allergic to Metronidazole? I'm sick (with diarrhea) but want to make sure I won't get sicker. ## They are different medications, but there is always a chance that you may discover other medications you are allergic to, according to NIH warnings.

Will the amoxicillian do the trick?
1 Reply RSS
I have a gum infection and my dentist put me on amoxicillin 500 3Xday. I have been on it for 5 days and the gums look and feel fine but the xray still shows a pocket of infection beside the tooth. The gum drained within 24 hrs. of being on the meds and has not reformed a pus sack on the gum. I only have 2 days left of the prescription. Will it be enough? My dentist thinks the infection was caused by something entering under the gum ( probably popcorn ). Thank you ## Hello, Kathy! How are you doing? Has there been any change? It is hard to say, you may need a longer course of antibiotic to fully remove the abscess. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin rash.
