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! ...

Used to treat MRSA ## To treat MRSA, Vancomycin or other antibiotics in the same class are used. Other options may include: Flucloxacillin, Erythromycin and Ciprofloxacin. I am not, however, finding any that start with an R. but it is possible that some doctors may use Rocephin, the active ingredient in Ceftriaxone, though it is not listed as being used to treat MRSA. Do you have any other information, such as antibiotic class or anything on the particular one or ones you are seeking information on? ## After taking a round of Cipro and Flagel, I have an imbalance of flora that is causing me diahrrea and stomach pain.

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.

Antibiotics with sprintec
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking antibiotics without realizing they can affect the effectiveness of my sprintec birth control. I haven't taken an active pill in 4 days and I have no signs of my period as of yet. Is there a possibility of pregnancy? ## Hello, Holly! How are you? What antibiotic were you taking? According to the NIH, not all of them reduce the efficacy of oral contraceptives. As to being late, the FDA does warn that most antibiotics can lengthen your menstrual cycle, so you may start later than normal. I've learned to just expect it any time I have to take one. However, if you are concerned about pregnancy, there is no harm in checking to be sure. ...

do antibiotics expire
2 Replies RSS
I have bactrim that expired 4 months ago is it safe to take ## Hello, Jean! How are you? Yes, all medications start to lose efficacy once past their expiration date and may not work as well as they did, when new. The issue this creates with antibiotics, such as Bactrim, is that it may no longer properly eradicate the bacteria, which could cause it to become drug resistant. Learn more Bactrim details here. It would really be best to see your doctor for a new prescription, if you suspect that you have an infection. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hello I have some antibiotics that has expired last month on the third is it safe to use them ...

Antibiotics and birth control started my cycle early
2 Replies RSS
I started on amoxicillin March 15, 2017 for a 10 day course. I then started my cycle March 19, 2017 (just two weeks after my last cycle). It has not been heavy, just a very light bleeding. However today makes the 12th day. Is this normal?Also, should i start a new pack of birth control being that i am on my inactive days. I am taking birth control Tricylen-Lo. I just want to stop the bleeding already. Please help me! ## Some antibiotics alter the efficacy of hormonal contraceptives and may alter your cycle. Things should return to normal, once you are done with the antibiotic and start taking the active tablets, again, without interference, according to NIH reports. Has there been any change, yet? How are you doing, now? ## I'm back to normal now. I started my active pill and the ve... ...

I have a UTI and was taking urovec with tetracycline for 1 day and the discomfort of the uti has not subsided at all! I want to switch over and start taking amoxicillin asap which has worked really well in the past. Are there any complications I should be aware of by starting the amoxicillin 4 hours after taking the urovec with tetracycline? ## No, you can usually just make a smooth transition from one to the other. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. However, it does take more than one day for an antibiotic to work. Usually, you shouldn't see any worsening after taking it for a full 24 hours and you should see improvement after taking it for a full 3 days. Is there anything else I can help wi... ...

Was prescribed this Medicine 1week ago today. Just realized I was supposed to be taking three pills so 450 mg every 8 hours. I have only been taking 1 pill 150 mg every 8 hours what should I do? Should I start taking the 3 pills until they are gone? ## Hello, Cammie! How are you? It would be best to discuss it with your doctor, because if you don't take the full dose for the full duration of treatment, there is a risk of your developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. Thus, they may need to prescribe more. The FDA lists the typical antibiotic side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

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... ...

How long should I wait before starting the new meds? ## Unless your doctor or pharmacist has said otherwise, you should be able to just cleanly switch from one to the other.

In most cases, they just have you replace the next required dose with the new one and proceed from there. Are you on any other medications? ...

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... ...
