Aslo how do you get blatter or urinary tract infections? ## Can AMOX TR-K CLV 875-125 Mg Tab help a bladder infection? ## @Jennifer, Based on my research, Amoxicillin and clavulanate is used to treat many different infections caused by bacteria, such as sinusitis, pneumonia, ear infections, bronchitis, urinary tract infections, and infections of the skin. However, I have heard that this medication is not extremely effective for urinary tract infections. Did your doctor prescribe this to you? If not, I would definitely make a point to speak with him/her first so you can get the right stuff to treat the UTI. Learn More: Amoxicillin +... ...

alergic reaction to augmentin
I went to the hospital yesterday as i had an ingrown toe nail infection. The doctor had prescribed augmentin, to be taken twice a day - 125mg. She also prescribed some probiotic medication and myprodol for the pain. By the evening, i had taken the 2nd dose of augmentin, 1 myprodol and 1 Reuterina tablet (Probiotic). This morning i woke up with severe chest pain and difficulty in breathing. My throat was very sore and my hands were painful. Its well into the day now, and i'm still battling with all of these symptoms. I have stopped taking all medication and i'm contemplating going back to the hospital. ## Hi Sin T!

An anti fungal I'm unsure about.
My doctor put me on Diflucan for a toe nail fungus.Has anyone ever heard of this before? I've already had all ten toe nails cut out three times and I can't face that again or having the nails removed.My nails are hard and curl into my toes. ## Hi Missy, Based on my research, Diflucan (Fluconazole) is primarily used to treat Vaginal yeast infections and has been approved by the FDA for that purpose. However, it is sometime prescribed as a toe nail fungus medicine when the toe nail fungus is a mild case, or if the toe nail fungus infection looks to be yeast generated. I have heard of people getting relief from toe nail fungus while using Diflucan, so I hope it works well for you too. Learn More: Diflucan Details If you have any more questions, please post back. ## Hi Jenna,thank y... ...

I have a purple, swollen, painful finger tip.... I took 2 pentrexyl ampicilina 500 mg capsules, will this help my finger??

side effects
I started taking it yesterday for a sinus infection and today, after taking both doses I have been dizzy, lightheaded and very woozy. Almost like I'm drunk. It's hard to focus. Is this okay? ## There is a great chance that is from the infection, rather than the antibiotic. I suggest calling your doctor and talking to them about it. ## I started taking this on 5/26/09 and I have dirreah and bloating very bad. I am calling my doctor tomorrow, Monday 5/31/09. ## how long does it take for your body to get use to the medicine so these side effect goes away ## HAD A CYST REMOVED AND WHEN LOOKING AT IT BEHIND THE NAIL ON MY FINGER, WE FOUND A LARGE AREA OF SKIN ABOUT 1/2 INCH ABV FINGER.

Candid B Cream
if we intake candid b cream wat happens ## Candid B is a local "skin application" that consists of Clotrimazole and betamethasone; it is effective for localized fungal infections such as Ring worm. I don't think ingesting the cream is a very good idea to say the least and may even cause more harm than good since it is not an oral medication. Keep in mind that Candid B is not effective in widespread fungal infections. For wide spread fungal infections one would need to take "oral" anti-fungal treatments. In addition, it is not very effective in fungal infection of the nails. As far as side effects go, Clotrimazole and Betamethasone can cause skin irritation. Some people can get allergic reactions but it is quite rare. Mild burning sensation, redness, and itching can a... ...

Hi, I have been using Oralcon for about a week now. My vagina is itching very badly, it is very uncomfortable. I need an alternate with no such side effects please. ## Hello, Eish! How are you? They shouldn't cause vaginal itching. That sounds more like you may have a yeast infection. You need to be seen and have it checked out to get the proper medication to clear it up. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## I have been using oralcon for a week now and have been so emotional crying even for a broken nail could this be the side effect? ...

metotoprol
I have just been prescribed Lamasil by my podiatrist. When looking online to see the detailed side effects and drug interactions of Lamisil, Metotoprol was listed as an interacting medicine. How will Metotoprol interact with my taking Lamasil? It does not say what the interaction is, but since Metotoprol is a beta blocker, I am concerned before I start taking the Lamasil. I want to start taking the oral Lamasil to get rid of a pretty bad nail infection. Thank you. ...
