I lost a piece of paper that said what I'm allergic to, I think it's an antibiotic that starts with an M. It it gives me a rash, my back starts to feel itchy, I had to take it for a blood infection. ## Hi igor, Antibiotics starting with "M" include: Meropenem, Mezlocillin, Meticillin, Moxifloxacin, Mafenide, and Minocycline. Do any of these names ring a bell? I'm sure there may be others out there, but this is what I could gather at the moment. I hope it helps! ...

Doing a lab for highschool about recombinant DNA, learning about taking the insulin gene from human DNA and inserting it into bacteria plasmids to mass-produce insulin. The plasmid had a gene for antibiotic resistance, there were three different types of antibiotics listed and the plasmid we were working with was resistant to one starting with a k, but I can't find it's name. ## Hello, Amanda! How are you? Was it possibly Keflex? It's a name brand for the antibiotic Cephalexin. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allerigc skin rash and diarrhea. ## Yes, thank you so much! That was one of the three. ...

What is an antibiotics that start with the letter A ## Hi Patricia, Amoxicillin is the first antibiotic that comes to mind, starting with the letter A. But Ampicillin, Actinonin, Actinomycin, and Azithromycin are just a few other names that I'm aware of as well. Are you trying to recall something that you may have taken in the past for an infection? ## Yes I'm trying to remember what I took. It caused me to break out in a rash from head to toe. I want to make sure I add it to my allergy list. ...

bacterial sinus infection AFTER starting antibiotics for another reason
3 Replies RSS
i was recently prescribed bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for an infected burn. on the second day, i woke up with a really sore throat. by night, i had a fever, and the next morning, i had a sinus infection--which i used to get chronically from about 11 years ago, up until 4 years ago, in which time ive only had one. a day later i had a productive cough, semi bad but nowhere near as bad as the bronchitus the sinus infections would, after months, eventually turn into. those infectionswere clearly bacterial as whenever I did end up taking antibiotics, they always ended within a few days. I tried to ride them through to defer antibiotic resistance and such, and i cant rememeber if i ever did, because they WOULDNT go away. regardless, i went back to the dr this time after gettin... ...

I've been on By-Mycin 100 since Saturday for a sinus infection, instructed to take 2 to start and take 1 a day for ten days. I feel a lot worse since starting treatment. I have a cough that I did not have. The only thing they are doing is helping me get stuff out of my nose that I could not get before. ## Hello, Ellen! How are you? It is normal to experience some side effects, when taking antibiotics, as reported by the U.S. FDA, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.

can I switch from one antibiotic to another?

I'm taking bactrim for a UTI. It turns out to be bacterial vaginosis. How long should I wait before starting the Flagyl ? ## Hi Lou Lou, Sorry to hear about the bacterial vaginosis. When it comes to switching between different prescriptions I would always encourage you to contact your prescribing doctor and/or the pharmacist who filled it first, for specific and safe dosing instructions. However I do know that when I've taken antibiotics in the past and one didn't work as intended, I was instructed to switch over to a different antibiotic within a day's time. Again, this is just my experience. Your doctor may recommend a different wait time, but in my own opinion I'm not sure that it matters too much as long as they're not being taken back to back and overloading... ...

advise regarding the possible antibiotics that have NO BLOOD THINNER QUALITIES
1 Reply RSS
I had an open sore on my left big toe, and I went swimming in a personal friends lagoon on their resort. A staff infection got into the sore and quickly spread throughout my left leg. The leg swelled to three times it's normal size, and I spent three weeks in a hospital, where they bombarded it with antibiotics. That procedure was working, but the antibiotics had trace effects of blood thinner qualities. I am a heart patient that has had nine heart procedures, including a quadruple bypass. I cannot take ANY TYPE OF BLOOD THINNER WITHOUT HEMORAGING. The antibiotics with thinners in them caught up with me, and I spent several trips to the hospital, severely hemoraging from the nose and mouth. I had to stop the antibiotics, and now the infection is starting to spread in my leg again. M... ...

I bought 100 amoxicillin caps about 3 years ago and stored them in a dark place,and I was curious if they would still be good to take. ## does amoxicillin expire ## don't use it. amoxicillin goes bad a year from when you bought it. ## Actually, no, it does not go bad, it just loses efficacy, so it is not as strong or as potent as when you first bought, starting from about 18 months past the manufacture date. You should never self-diagnose or self-treat with antibiotics anyway, there are so many other conditions that will not respond to them, so they have no effect, and you of course run the risk of developing an antibiotic resistant strain of something with overuse, so please see your doctor. ## first of all why do you just have the drug sitting around? did you take it and not finis... ...
