I hevent seen my menstruation for six years.I went to de Dr n they gave me anaerobyl 400 , ciplex , doxycycline and ferrous and folic acid , can all this tablets help ? Please give advice on what more can I use to bring back my menstruation iv been trying to conceive n its difficult. ## Hello Shima! How are you? Has there been any change? How old are you? It really depends on why you haven't experienced a period in so long. If it is due to menopause, then there isn't really anything you can do to change that. However, it could be due to several other medical conditions, and resolving such an issue will require getting the relevant condition under control, if so. Are you on any other medications?

Difference between amoc tr k clv and amoxicillin clavulic acid - Augmentin vs generic

My physician ordered Augmentin but insurance only paid for the generic. I have a sinus infection and have been on amox tr-k clv for 4 days now. I have not had any relief yet. It didn't help and I wonder why? I feel that generic meds are not working for me. I know that all generic drugs are chemically made different than the Brand drug in this case Augmentin. Would the brand have worked better? My concern is this terrible headaches I am still having around my eye socket (has not improved after 4 days on the generic drug).

Terramicina Oxitetraciclina Polimixina B For Eyes

I used this medication on my little girl for pink eye and it really helps but now she has a kind of rash under her eye that comes and goes. It's been like this all day. Is it normal? What should I do? ## This is an antibiotic ointment and most antibiotics, whether used topically or taken orally, can cause a non-allergic skin rash as a side effect. Have you consulted her doctor? In most cases, it will go away, shortly after she finishes the treatment regimen. ## People, this terramicina is for the eyes. I think you're confused with vitacilina that's used for diaper rash. ## Where can I purchase one of these creams? My daughter has had a bad sty for a week and someone told me this cream was golden to help with stys. SOMEONE HELP please!

Cephalexin Cap 500 Mg Side Effects Hiccups

My husband has been taking this med for a virus. He will eat something small before taking b/c it upset his stomach. Shortly after taking he will get hiccups that will last for awhile. Can this med cause this and should he keep taking? ## First of all, Cephalexin is an antibiotic, so it is only effective against infections, it will not do anything for a virus, since it's not an antiviral medication. Did his doctor prescribe this? That is why antibiotics cannot be used to treat cold or the flu, because they are caused by viruses, not bacterial infections. Using them inappropriately causes the risk of developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. As to the hiccups, it is probably because they can cause some gas in some people, if he is taken it with small amounts of food and gulping a flu...
