can amox-clav 875 be used for staff infection on the skin? ## Information I was able to gather states that: "Amoxicillin is often the drug of choice for staph infections of the ear, throat and nose, says Rx List. Doctors also order amoxicillin for staph infections of the skin and skin structures, or for lower respiratory infections like bronchitis and pneumonia. For patients with skin infections from beta-lactamase-producing staph, doctors will often order amoxicillin/clavulanate." NOTE: Adults typically take 250 to 500 mg of amoxicillin three times a day, or 500 to 875 mg twice a day for 7 to 10 days, for staph infections of the skin.

Will this for medicine b effective for a thoat infection? ## This is the generic version of the antibiotic Augmentin, which is used to treat various types of infections. However, the problem is that you may not have enough to fully eradicate the infection, since a full course of treatment is needed, which would usually be about 10 days. That coupled with the fact that the presence of an infection hasn't been confirmed by a doctor creates the risk of your developing antibiotic resistant bacteria, which is something you've already put yourself at risk of, if you didn't finish the full cou... ...

Amox Pot Clav 875 Mg subcribed
I have been taking 2 pills a day of this for eight days. It was prescribed to me to prevent infection in a ruptured ear drum. The last few days I feel as if I have come down with a head cold. My sinuses are dripping constantly and I am sneezing. How is this possible with all this atibiotics in me? ## Simply because a cold is not caused by an infection, a cold is caused by a virus and therefore the antibiotics will have no effect on preventing it or helping it to clear up. An antibiotic is only effective at preventing or treating infections. The antibiotic may cause some side effects, such as: nausea, drowsiness, skin rash and diarrhea. The cold may also make the diarrhea worse, so you need to be careful and make sure you take in a lot of fluids to prevent dehydration. Learn more: Are th... ...

How long to wait resolotution of infection signs with amox clav 875 mg
My wife (Diabetic) with history of bladder infections, went to doctor with ache/pains and strong difficulty swallowing, was diagnosed with ear and throat (swollen) infection. Prescription was AMOX -CLAV, 1-tablet every 12-hr. She has been on subject pill for 24-hr's w/o any discernible change, complaining of strong body ache/pains and difficulty swallowing. How long should I rely on pill, if no change, before returning to doctor... or going to hospital? ## Hi! Sorry she's so miserable! The general rule for antibiotics is that there should be no worsening after they've been taken for a full 24 hours and improvement should start within 72 hours (3 days), so if you see worsening or there's no improvement after that time frame, she'll need more medical attention. This is... ...

Can I Take Amox Trk Clv With Nyquil
I was prescribed Amox TR-K CLV 875-125 MG Tab from my doctor, however I still feel the symptoms of the cold. I've also read that Amox does not cure the common cold. Can I take nyquil with the prescribed drug to make these symptoms go away? ## That is correct, Amoxicillin with Clavulanic Acid, a generic for Augmentin, is an antibiotic and is not effective at treating a cold, since colds are caused by a virus. However, many colds do lead to infections, since they can reduce your immunity and some people end up with ear or throat infections. Your doctor may have prescribed it to treat or prevent those, if you've been prone to getting them before. Learn more Augmentin details here. As to taking Nyquil with it, I didn't find any interactions or problems listed between the two, bu... ...
