I have clindamycin hcl from 2008. Is it safe to take? ## Have clindamycin 150 mg cap from 1/07/2009, is it still safe to use? ## i have clindamycin 150mg kept in refrigerator is it still good?03/04/09 ## To cover these questions for other site users that may need to know the same information. If they the capsules have been in a bottle that was dispensed by your pharmacy, which exposed them to the elements, they have an expiration date of one year from the date you received them. After that time, they will start to degrade and will no longer be as effective. At that point, it's best to dispose of them, due to the risk of developing antibiotic resistance if you take them. Millie, were you asking about a liquid formulation? If so, those are only good for a week, they degrade very fast....

acido nalidixico fenazopiridina

I got this in Mexico last week for a bladder infection. Is this just for the pain of a bladder infection? Or does it help cure one too? ## The active ingredients are 500mgs of Nalidixic Acid and 50mgs of Phenazopyridine, it is commonly used to treat urinary tract infections, because some bacteria that cause them are sensitive to the acid and will be killed by it. That said, however, it is not an antibiotic, so it may help clear it up, but there is also a chance that it won't. The main side effect warned about when taking this is photo-sensitivity. Is there anything else I can help you with? ## I live in Mexico and have been taking Acido Nalidixico Fenazopiridina for several days now for a urinary tract infection. (self diagnosed as I know the symptoms since I have had many) However,...

Amoxicillin dosage for dogs

80 lb dog = how much amoxicillin? ## I have 250mg Amoxicillin capsules, but my dog only needs 60mg. How would I handle this? Rocky weighs 6 1/2 lbs. I believe I calculated the dose correctly. ## Can the Amoxicillin 400 mg (bmp 196) green tablets be crushed and mixed with food to give to my dog? ## How much amoxicillin tr k clv 500/125 is safe for an 8lb dog? She has skin irritation after her cycle. ## Hello, According to the NIH "The recommended dose of amoxicillin in dogs and cats is 5-10mg/pound" so a dog who is 80 lbs should have 400-800 mg. Since this is such a wide gap I suggest you call into your vet office and see what they suggest, typically if they have your animal on file they will have a good estimate of what they should have. Best wishes and happy holidays.
