Amox Tr K Clv 500 125 Side Effects

I can't stop the diarrhea....please advise how to it... ## Because diarrhea is a common side effect of Amoxicillin, to me it makes sense to stop taking what's causing the issue in the first place, and then opt for another alternative or natural remedy to kill the infection. Eating plenty of bananas may help with the diarrhea temporarily if you're veering towards the end of your Amoxicillin treatment; otherwise I'd suggest looking into the use of Oregano Essential Oil (as it is heavily regarded as being a more potent antibiotic than this drug, minus the side effects). Just something to consider down the road. I hope this bit of info helps! ## Doctor RX'd AMOX TR-K CLV 500-125 mg, 14 pills 2x a day for a reoccuring bladder infection. So far I have taken 10 pills out of...

does the antibiotic clindamycin work for nrsa staph infection

I am taking clindamycin for nrsa staph infection of my leg, will this treatment cure me of staph infection ? ## Hi, Barry! Sorry about the infection, I hope it clears up fast. And yes, many strains of MRSA are still susceptible to Clindamycin, but it is becoming increasingly resistant. Thus, there's really no way to say if it's going to work for the infection you have. The only thing you can do is try it and see. Learn more Clindamcyin details here. It may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. To know if it's working, you shouldn't see any worsening of the infection after the first 24 hours of taking it and you should start to see improvement after 3 days, if not you'll need to contact your doctor. Are there any other que...
