18 Replies RSS
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. If ...

I have a fever and I'm suspecting that it's a viral fever, so plz suggest some antibiotics. ## I got fever and body pains since one day ## Antibiotics are not effective against viruses, which is why they cannot be used to treat a cold or flu.

In July of 2017, i was admitted in the hospital for fluid overload, (I am on dialysis) my primary doctor was there and ordered xrays for my chest and had said my chest was clear and he left. But the other residents lied to me and said that i had pneumonia. And they proceeded to give me bags of levoflaxacin through if. Since I've been home, i am experiencing a strange discharge, my jaw is swollen on my left side, i had high blood pressure, lupus, pacemaker and on dialysis. It is October and have not taken one blood pressure pill because my pressure drops significantly during dialysis, i believe it is because of the levoflaxacin. I was given medication that i did not want or need and i guess that this is ok because I am powerless to do anything about this. I am angry because I am stil...
