Azithromycin no imprint
2 Replies RSS
I ordered azithromycin online and it is a white oval with no imprint. Is this safe? ## If there is no imprint, it is difficult to say what it might be, that is one of the hazards of ordering online. We can rule it out as being a U.S. prescription product, because they are all required to have imprints to enable their identification, but if it's from a foreign source, there is really no way to say. Is anyone familiar with this? ## I ordered the exact same. Did you take them? I'm a little leary.

switching antibiotics for rash

I took 3-day 500 mg Azithromycin for Acne rosacea. The total dose should be 3 day 500 mg and then skip 5 days and then take 3-day 500 mg until 4 weeks of period. but I have skin rash and itching. My doctor prescribed doxycyclin 150 mg per day. I thought Azithromycin was safer than Doxy and less sunsensitive. Should I continue Azithro or start taking Doxy and quit Azithro after three days. ## You should follow your doctor's instructions, if you are itching from the Azithromycin, that could be due to an allergic reaction and they tend to get worse, with repeated expose to the offending medication. They both carry the same risks. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can he...

Please reply asap. thank you, kindly. ## Azithromycin is an antibiotic used to treat various types of infections. Before using it, you should see a doctor to confirm that you have an infection.

Can anaerobyl help with bleeding
2 Replies RSS
Last month i started preventative treatment with a 2 month inj., then the past few weeks i started having pains that resulted in bleeding. I wen't to the clinic and they gave me anaerobyl and austell-azithromycin tablets. The pains stopped but bleeding didn't. Can u help me out? ## Hello, Lady T! How are you? These are antibiotics that are used to treat or prevent bacterial infections. They will only help, if the bleeding is due to some type of infection. The U.S. FDA lists their typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Contraceptive infections can sometimes cause bleeding and cramping as side effects, along with nausea, dizziness and headaches, so your symptoms may be due to that. Are you on any other medicatio...

pliva 787 and diarrhea
1 Reply RSS
How long will pliva 787 remain in your system for diarrhea to stop? After 3 days what happens if you stop taking pliva 787? ## Hello, Snu! How are you? Diarrhea is a normal side effect of antibiotics, as reported by the FDA. (Pliva lists this tablet as containing 250mgs of Azithromycin.) Other side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and non-allergic skin rash. If you stop taking it, before finishing your course of treatment, you create the risk of your developing antibiotic resistant bacteria and you may not fully eradicate the infection. If the diarrhea is severe, you should consult your doctor to see if they might prescribe an alternative antibiotic. Is there anything else I can help with?

Azithromycin And Cefixime Combination

sir both drugs having different treatment duration can we use a FDC FOR THE SAME ## Jagdeep sharma Delhi Azithromycin And Cefixime Combination ## Cefixime and Azithromycin precribing information ## whats is the main purpose for combination of AZITHROMYCIN & CIFIXIME combination? ## Becoz harrison 18th edition recomends that azithromycin &cefixime can use as aemperical treatment...there can b use azithromycin 1mg/day for 5 days... ## Cefixim and azithromycin should never be prescribed together; which only will augment resistance. If no response in 3days, provided no scope of c/s, should be discontinued and switch over to another. And if one suspects it as a severe disease, no harm using parenteral antibiotics. Think at least Three times before prescribing an #antibiotic.

Hi, i'm 8 weeks pregnant. I went to see a doctor 2 weeks back for an infection. He gave me moxypen-250 but it didn't work, then i just went to the clinic and explained my situation. The sister gave me azithromycin. She said it's safe to use during pregnancy. Is it safe to take 4 tablets at the same time? I don't want to take any risks. Please help. ## The U.S. FDA considers Azithromycin to be safe during pregnancy, so you should follow the dosing instructions you were given. Its typical side effects may possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi I'm 25 weeks pregnant and I took Azithromycin and now I'm so worried it could be dangerous for my unborn baby please help me

I have a slight fever and coughing and chest hurts. I have a bottle of zertalin azitromicini 6 500 mg tablets. This is a z-pack. Do I take one a day for six days.? ## I have a slight fever cough chest congestion and chest hurts when I cough. I took 1 500 mg of zertalin azithromycin today. There r 6 in the bottle. Do I take 1 per day for 6days ## Hello, Doreen! How are you feeling? This is an antibiotic, so it should only be taken, if your doctor confirms the presence of an infection. If you have a cold, it is caused by a virus, not a bacterial infection, so antibiotics aren't appropriate and will do nothing to treat it. The normal dosing, for many infections, is a 500mg starter dose, the 250mgs per day for the next 4 days. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including...
