Antibiotics That Start With M
1 Reply RSS
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! ...

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... ...

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... ...

does amoxicillin go bad with age?
104 Replies RSS
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... ...
