Nalidixic Acid Overview

Nalidixic acid (tradenames Nevigramon, Neggram, Wintomylon and WIN 18,320) is the first of the synthetic quinolone antibiotics. In the technical sense, it is a naphthyridone, not a quinolone: its ring structure is a 1,8-naphthyridine nucleus that contains two nitrogen atoms, unlike quinoline, which has a single nitrogen atom.[1] Synthetic quinolone antibiotics were discovered by George Lesher and coworkers as a byproduct of chloroquine manufacture in the 1960s.[1] Used clinically from 1967.[1...

Acido Nalidixico Fenazopiridina - does it get rid of urinary tract infections?
The doctor prescribed this medication for a urinary tract infection. Does it work to get rid of the infection? Shouldn't I be taking Bactrin rather than the medication that is in the title? Dorit ## Hi, Dorit! No, the first part of the medication in the title is Nalidixic Acid, which is a type of antibiotic that's used to treat or prevent infections. Phenazopyridine is another ingredient that's used to alleviate the pain of the infection. Side effects may include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting and discolored urine. You can learn more Nalidixic Acid details here and there are more Phenazopyridine details here. Is there anything else I can help with?

acido nalidixico fenazopiridina
I Got this in Mexico last week for bladder infection. Is this just for pain of a bladder infection? Or does it help cure one too? ## The active ingredients are 500mgs of Nalidixic Acid and 50mgs of Phenazopyridine, it is commonly used to treat urinary tract infections, because some bacteria that cause them are sensitive to the acid and will be killed by it. That said, however, it is not an antibiotic, so it may help clear it up, but there is also a chance that it won't. The main side effect warned about when taking this is photo-sensitivity. Is there anything else I can help you with? ## I live in Mexico and have been taking Acido Nalidixico Fenazopiridina for several days now for a urinary tract infection. (self diagnosed as I know the symptoms since I have had many) However, altho...
