Amoxicillin Overview

Amoxicillin also spelled amoxycillin, is an antibiotic useful for the treatment of a number of bacterial infections.[2] It is the first line treatment for middle ear infections. It may also be used for strep throat, pneumonia, skin infections, and urinary tract infections among others.[2] It is taken by mouth, or less commonly by injection.[2][3] Common side effects include nausea and rash.[2] It may also increase the risk of yeast infections and, when used in combination with clavulanic acid...

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...

betamox during pregnancy

My cousin took betamox last night around 3AM in the morning. She started bleeding and she is only 8 weeks pregnant, could something be wrong with her baby? ## Hello, Motso! If she's bleeding, she needs to see a doctor immediately, both her life and the life of the baby could be in danger. Betamox contains the active ingredient Amoxicillin, it's just an antibiotic that's used to treat infections. While she shouldn't take it, unless her doctor tells her that it's okay, it won't usually cause such bleeding. Learn more Betamox details here. Its normal side effects may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Does she have a doctor she can see? ## I am 7 weeks pregnant and I experienced a small amount of blood. My doctor gave me betamox. Will it...

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.

I haven't been able to sleep for 2 days taking pilva 787

I was prescribed pilva 787 for pneumonia 2 days ago and I haven't been able to sleep yet. What should I do? ## Insomnia can be a side effect of most antibiotics, according to FDA reports, as odd as it may seem. Some people experience drowsiness, some experience insomnia and irritability, along with dizziness, and diarrhea. My husband has been dealing with it recently, because he was taking a steroid, then put on Amoxicillin. At least he is on call some nights, so he needs to be awake, anyway, in case the phone rings. LOL How are you doing, now? Has there been any change? Are you on any other medications?

Amoxicillin with Azithromycin
1 Reply RSS
My husband has strep throat. He was prescribed amoxicillin & is on day 5 of taking them. His fever broke but his throats still looks terrible and is sore. He called his doctor today and they told him to stop taking the amoxicillin if it hasn't worked yet and prescribed him a z pack. I'm a nurse and have always been under the impression that a patient needs to finish the complete course of an antibiotic so they don't build a resistency to it. Should he finish the amoxicillin first instead of just stopping abruptly to start the z pack? ## No, one can switch from one to the other, if their doctor instructs them to do so, there is nothing to worry about. Drug resistance would occur if someone stopped taking all antibiotics, before the infectious bacteria was fully eradicated...

Antibiotic side effects of foul body odor, bad breath and sweating
1 Reply RSS
I'm prescribed Amoxicillin 875mg two times daily x 10 days. I've been on it for a week, but now waking up with a horrendous foul body odor and very bad breath. Initially I thought the odor was external but it's NOT. It was me. Please help. ## It is possible to experience such side effects with almost all medications, since they do have an effect on your body chemistry. However, they should go away, about a week or so, after finishing your course of treatment, according to FDA reports. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin rash. Has there been any change? How are you feeling, now?

Amoxicillin 875 Clav K 125 Tab For Uti
9 Replies RSS
I have a UTI, I am going crazy, my Dr. can't get me in for four days and there is no way I can take any more of this. I have Amoxicillin 875/ Clav K 125 Tab (whatever that means) that I was prescribed for a sinus infection that went away on its own. Can I use this for my UTI? I have the full prescription right here. Ugh that would be a God send. Cranberry is only keeping some of the pain away. ## Amoxicillin with Clavulanic Acid, the active ingredients in Augmentin, is an antibiotic that is used to treat various types of infections, however, it may not actually help in the case of a UTI. Overuse has caused it to become ineffective for treating these types of infections in a large percentage of people, which is why it is no longer the first choice antibiotic for treating them. The do...
