My dosage of amoxicillin for pneumonia
3 Replies RSS
I was prescribed two amoxicillins for pneumonia. Amoxicillin 500mg and Amoxicillin /K Clav 875-125. Im suppose to take both twice a day and levofloxacin 750mg once a day. Is this too much antibiotics? ## Hello, Ruth! How are you feeling? I'm sorry that you're ill. No, multiple antibiotics are often prescribed, in the case of severe infections, to try to get the bacteria under control, so it can be eradicated as fast as possible. You may, however, experience more severe side effects than when taking only one, such as more severe dizziness, drowsiness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ## No further questions. Thank you for your response and for your care. Im doing quite well considering. Thanks again! ## You are welcome and I s... ...

Husband, 64, is being switched to Losartan. I am concerned b/c of trying to match correct dose. Benicar dose was 20/12.5, Losartan will be 100/12.5. (haven't taken yet) From what I've read, the 50/12.5 sounds more like it -or should he request to take 50mg 2ce a day? I'm going to contact Dr regarding this, but thought I'd get some input from you experts first so I'll know what to ask and how. Other concern is he is dx'd with Afib and HBP and is on a slew of other meds: prazosin, nisoldipine, flecainide, metoprolol and just added digoxin. We're trying to avoid sudden drop in BP with this Losartan adjustment. Any recommendations? Thanks ## I honestly wouldn't recommend trying to compare and match dosages between two different drugs whether they treat the sa... ...

amoxicillin dosage amount for 40 pound kid
1 Reply RSS
Need to know how much amoxicillin to give my 40 pound kid ## Hello, Al! How are you? You should give them the dosage their doctor prescribed. When under 12, it is usually dosed by their weight and according to the severity of the infection. The FDA classifies this medication as an antibiotic and its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. The dosage for a 40 pound child could range anywhere from 360mgs a day in divided doses to 540mgs a day in divided doses. I also strongly urge you not to try to diagnose yourself, because improper use of an antibiotic could result in them developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Correct Dosage of meds
2 Replies RSS
My daughter is 14 yrs old and 120 lbs and 5 ft 9 in. She went to doc this am for strep like symptoms, but it came out neg but doc prescribed liquid amoxicillin (7ml) every 12 hrs. Her throat is feeling worse - could she have the wrong dosage? ## Amoxicillin comes in 125 mg, 250 mg, and 400 mg per 5 cc. The top reasonable dose is 90 mg per Kg, and she is about 55 kg. Amoxicillin is usually given 2 or 3 times per day. So - bottom line I don't think she is in danger of too high a dose. ## @worried, I'm trying to figure out why the doctor even prescribed an antibiotic if the results came back negative for an infection? That just doesn't make any sense logically, unless there's something we don't already know? And with her throat now feeling worse after taking it, I wonde... ...

Drug dosage and weight
1 Reply RSS
My friend is 160lb and she took 4000mg of ibprofen. Should she go to a hospital? ## 4000mg, as in 20 of the standard OTC pills?! Overdose is possible, although unlikely at doses under 100 mg per kg of body weight - keep an eye out for some of the symptoms of Ibuprofen overdose such as abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, drowsiness, dizziness, headache, ringing in the ears, and twitchy eye movement. If you suspect that she has overdosed call your the emergency number (such as 911) or 1-800-222-1222 for a local poison control center. Do not wait to take action if she seems to be in danger! Better safe than sorry! At least call poison control and report to them what's going on. Hope this helps and good luck! References: Ibuprofen Wiki Details Medline Plus: Ibuprofen Overdose ...

My child is 12 and 100lbs. Should I give her 500 mg or 250 mg of penicillan vk. It is for an oral infection. ## Hello, Lulu! How is your daughter? This should not be given, unless her doctor has confirmed the presence of an infection and prescribed it. If she doesn't have an infection, then giving her an antibiotic creates the risk of her developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. If she does have one, it may not be the right antibiotic. Is this a dental issue, or something else? ...

Amoxicillin Dosage for 1 year old ear infection
1 Reply RSS
son is 13 months old and 22 lbs he is to take 400 mg /5ml susp 100ml of amox. 1 teaspoon 2xs a day for ear infection is this the correct dosage? ## Hi Jennifer, From what I can find, the usual dose for a child greater than 3 months old (with a mild/moderate ear infection) is (25 mg/kg) per day in divided doses every 12 hours- or (20 mg/kg) per day in divided doses every 8 hours. Is 1 teaspoon twice a day of 400 mg Amoxicillin suspension what your doctor prescribed? If so, I don't see why it wouldn't be correct. Note: All thoughts and opinions expressed are based on my research and should not be mistaken for medical advice. I am not a doctor nor a pharmacist. all medical questions should be answered by a licensed pharmacist or doctor. You can learn more about this drug on the pag... ...

Dosages Of Chlorthalid
2 Replies RSS
I JUST STARTED THE DRUG CHLORTHALID 25 MG. TODAY. I HAVE NOT NOTICED ANY INCREASE IN MY URINE OUTPUT. IS IT BECAUSE OF THE LOW DOSAGE? WOULD AN INCREASE IN THE DOSAGE HELP? ## No, you shouldn't arbitrarily increase the dosage of any medication on your own, it isn't safe to do so. And though this is a diuretic and will have a small immediate effect, like any medication, it will take awhile to reach its full effect in your body, so one day isn't really enough to judge its efficacy on. Learn more Chlorthalidone details here. If it's working for you, you'll know in a few days and, if not, then please let the prescribing doctor know. What are you taking it to treat? ## WELL, FIRST OF ALL, I SAID IT WAS 25 MG, AND I ONLY TAKE 1/2 OF A PILL, SO I'M TAKING 12 1/2 MG. ONC... ...

Trimeth Sulfa Ds 160 800mg What Is standard dosage for adult
1 Reply RSS
What is the usual dosage for this med? Dr. gave a sample for the earache, but failed to tell the amount. ## Based on my research, dosage requirements for this medication can depend largely on what you are taking it for. However the "average" oral dose of Sulfamethoxazole (800 mg) + Trimethoprim (160 mg) DS (double strength) for an adult would be to take a pill every 12 hours for 10 to 14 days. Even if this is the average dosage for most conditions, it would probably still be best to confirm what your doctor recommends for YOU. This oral medication should be taken by mouth with a full glass of water or as directed by your doctor. You can view a detailed description of the drug by clicking on the link below... Please post back if you have any other questions or concerns about this... ...

No, that's about the average dose, 400 to 500mgs. If you're concerned, please check with your pediatrician, you should never be afraid to ask questions, but this isn't considered an overdose for a child this age and size.

Do you still make verapamil 240mg 12 hour? I have been taking this dosage for years. What would I expect if I start taking the 24 hour tablet? Called 2 pharmacies and they do not carry the 12 hour dose. ## Hello, Mary! How are you? I'm sorry, but this website does not manufacture any medications, it is an information only resource. There really shouldn't be a lot of changes switching from one to the other, except for only taking one pill daily, rather than two. Has your doctor okayed the switch? Side effects to this medication may include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, cough and hypotension. ...
