I am worried that Doxiclat 100mg is not working
Post a Reply
I have had Urithritis going on almost 2 months. I have been tested for all major STDs and have come back negative. I have been put on Ciproflaxion and 2 rounds of Azithromycin... The symptoms go for a while but end up coming back. The urologist suspects it to be Mycoplasma Genitaliam and has put me on Doxiclat 200mg a 1 xday for 2 weeks. I am on day 4 and still have the symptoms of Urithritis... does this mean its not working either?

Amoxicillin, cold sores
2 Replies RSS
I had a sinus infection a few months ago and my doctor prescribed amoxicillin. Today I noticed the signs of a cold sore coming. Could I take the rest of my amoxicillin to get rid of it? ## Unfortunately, cold sores are caused by a virus, so an antibiotic will not help treat or prevent them. However, you could ask your doctor about taking Acyclovir, which is approved by the FDA to help prevent them. Its typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and stomach pain. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi, I'm getting lipliner tattoo and would like to know if I take Amoxicillin and Clavulanate Potassium 875mg will prevent me from getting cold sores? I've never had cold sores before.

Brand Name: V-Cillin K® ## What is the name for a pill that is white and oval with 19 on one side and plain on the other? ## Jarred - I don't have a 100% match for you, but I did find a pill with similar markings.

Also, I'm suppose to start my period yesterday but I couldn't start it, although I had unprotected intercourse wit my partner 2wks ago....My question now is dat, is it an infection dat has affected my period or am I pregnant? ## Hello, Whitney! How are you? I can't answer as to whether or not you're pregnant, the only way to know that is by checking for pregnancy. However, as to your other symptoms, what you've described are listed by the NIH as being the typical symptoms of a yeast infection and, if that's what it is, you'll need an antifungal medication to treat it. Have you consulted your doctor? ## I'm 33 years old ...

In december I developed bad tooth pain and a sore on the gum in a left molar. I have a heart murmer and my blood press.rose to a high level but was erratic and other times a normal rate. I called a dentist and he said to go to the ER. I did and they prescribed amoxicillin at 500mgs every 8 hrs. The last dose was on Jan 3, 2013 and by then the tooth problem was gone. I went to a dentist and he found no infections but said a molar on the opposite side which had lost some filling should be repaired soon. I made an appt. with him, but in the meantime it developed a blister near the root and soreness at the gumline. Also I started having erratic BP swings again sometimes 160/105 and resting pulse to 88. When I called he said to cancel his appt and go to the ER again, he didn't think the ...

Does anyone know where I could get prescribed samples of this medicine? My dr. had enough for me to last 4 days and I'm supposed to take 3 pills a day for 14 days. I need 30 more pills. I live in Dallas, Texas. Please help. The cost for me to get this med is 400.00 with my insurance which is out of reach for me. ## Hi Bella, You could try asking your doctor for samples. Sometimes doctors carry sample packets of the medications they most often prescribe when they're given them directly from the manufacturer's drug representative to offer to prospective patients. Also, if your doctor prescribed a 14 day course of treatment, I don't see why they would only write you a prescription for 4 days? I think there definitely needs to be an open line of communication between you and...
