cefixime dose given early to 3 month old baby
2 Replies RSS
My 3 minth ild baby girl got urine infectiin and doctor advised to give cefixime 2.5ml, 2 times a day for 7 days. By mistake i have given one dose in morning and one dose in afternoon. Instead of giving doses in morning and night. Is there anything to worry. Please help. ## Hello, Yas! How is your daughter doing? Has there been any change? Giving them too close together generally won't cause dangerous harm, but if consistent levels aren't maintained in her body for the proper amount of time, it may not eradicate the bacteria and could cause it to develop antibiotic resistance. Thus, it would be best to inform her doctor, so they can check, just in case. The U.S. FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic ...

Cephalexin (APO500) For Sinus Infection
3 Replies RSS
What should the dosage of this med be. Adult female approx 130.lbs. ## The usual Adult dose for an Upper Respiratory Tract Infection is 250 to 500 mg orally every 6 hours for 7 to 10 days. Anatomically speaking, the upper respiratory tract does include the sinuses, so it would be safe to assume that this would be the correct dose for this type of infection. You can read more about this medication here: Is there anything else I can help you with? ## Hi! Thanks for posting! What has your doctor advised? The usual dosage for something such as a sinus infection is 500mgs every 12 hours, but it can vary depending on the severity of the infection, so you should follow your doctor's instructions. ## Should your boyfriend be treated if I am taking Cephalexin?

sulfameth/trimethoprim 800-160 ## I have been on this drug for a week now and I have been experiencing a hard time sleeping and I wake up every hour on the hour and when I first was on it I did not sleep for four days and I never had sleeping problems before. When I do sleep I also get really weird dreams. Has anyone experienced this? ## Yes- I am having problems sleeping and weird dreams also. Ooh-well; it will stop soon. I will complete the medication and hopefully be done with it. ## This medication is a combination of two antibiotics, and yes, they will cause sleep problems for some people, but this will wear off if you are on it for awhile, or it you complete your course of treatment. ## I have been put on Bactrim for my acne treatment. I also have problem with sleeping and wierd d...

penicillin vk 500mg tabs

penicillin ## I have recently been prescribed Penicillin Vk 500 mg from a doctor. I was in SO much pain from my peridontal disease,(from my infection under my teeth), that the pain was excruciating. i went to an emergency hospital instead of a dentist. I have looked up this medication and it describes this certain medication to be used for throat, not an infection. Is this right? have you heard of anyone else being prescribed this medicine for a gum? mouth problem? ## This is a general antibiotic, it is used to treat many different types of infection, not just those of the throat or any other specific part of the body. I took it many times for dental infections. Here's a link to the monograph for more information: Broad spectrum antibiotics, such as this one, can be used to treat ma...

spider bite brown recluse
5 Replies RSS
I was bitten by a brown recluse spider on my big toe 5 years ago. It will not heal and doctors now don't know what else to do. I have been on antibiotic after antibiotic and many ornaments that I apply topically, but it continues to bleed and ooze infection. Once in awhile it will heal over but then it will bust open again and again. I am now getting other little blisters around it and up my leg. Does anyone have any suggestions on any other treatment that I can do? I do not want to lose my toe or my foot. But it is really bad. Dr tells me to stay off of it completely. I do as much as I can and continue to use the ointment they give, but it is not getting any better. Would appreciate any suggestions! ## The spider bite has also been lanced and debrided many times.

I took Penetrex knot kit eight days ago and I have been bleeding ever since with pain all over and severe nausea that doesn't even stop for a minute. So what should i do? Please help me out, can i have any tablets to control the pain? ## It sounds like you are having a severe reaction or an infection, and the drug is not doing its job.

I took all the precautions needed when entering his room gown gloves face mask ect. and washed and sanitized my hands when done doing anything with him.

Any information would be helpful. Thank you!

Nitrofur Mac and the time it takes to leave your system
9 Replies RSS
I am taking nitrofur mac 100mg 2x a day for a bladder infection. I have had mild nausea. How does it take to leave my system entirely after I have taken my last pill ## Nitrofurantoin's Half-life is about 20 minutes. However this time is increased in those with renal impairment. The time it takes to completely leave your system is varied for each individual, however most Antibiotics can stay in your system for a few days after you stop taking them. I would estimate anywhere from 2-4 days depending on how long you were taking them. I hope this helps! ## Is it normal for nitrofurantoin to give feeling of rapid heartbeat and when will it go back to normal. Also still having feeling of urgency to pass urine and frequency after 12 x 50mg doses and end of course; is this normal. ## Is any...

Betamox 500mg Antibiotic

IS BETAMOX SAFE TO TAKE DURING PREGNANCY? ## Betamox contains the active ingredient Amoxicillin, it is an antibiotic that is used to treat various types of infections. Has your doctor instructed you to use it? If you have an infection that requires treatment, letting it continue out of control would be far more dangerous to both you and the baby. This medication is also not known to cause any problems to the baby in studies. It may, however, cause some side effects, such as: nausea, dizziness, diarrhea and skin rash.

cotrimoxazole 800 mg and pregnancy
20 Replies RSS
i am 2 months pregnant and had taken 6 tabs of cotrimoxazole in one time, does it affect the fetus? How severe would be the damage to the fetus? For this drug i had taken, Do i need to continue Or terminate my pregnancy? ## Hi Lony - Co-Trimoxazole (containing Sulfamethoxazole + Trimethoprim as the active ingredients) is reported to be in Pregnancy Category C in the US and Australia. This is defined as "Animal reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect on the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in humans, but potential benefits may warrant use of the drug in pregnant women despite potential risks." [1] With that said, I cannot really give you conclusive information as to how your fetus would be affected. My thought at this point is you should be fi...

Amoxicillin Gum Infection
4 Replies RSS
I have a gum infection. My dentist prescribed Amoxicillin 500 mg, 4 times a day. Would this be considered to be a "normal" dose of the medication? It seems to me to be quite a high dosage, i.e., 2000 mg a day. I just need some guidance on this. ## It can vary, depending on the severity of the infection being treated and thus, can range from 2 to 4 doses daily. And you also have to remember that in this case, where it is a gum infection being treated, you have to eradicate the existing infection and prevent reinfection, since you have to eat every day and expose your gums to further possible contaminants. A higher dosage might cause more severe side effects, such as worsening of the nausea, dizziness and diarrhea that antibiotics can cause. Are there any other questions? You can ...

Medicated ear drops badly burn
1 Reply RSS
I went in with bad ear aches and was obviously told I have ear infections. I was given amoxicillin along with Neomycin and polymyxin b sulfates and hydrocortisone otic solution, usp. It was fine the first two days then the third day and today it burns my right ear very badly. I can't keep it in the 5 min. My left ear still feels no major pain when using. Is this normal?? ## Yes, the FDA does list that as being a possible side effect of this medication, you may also experiencing redness, drainage, and itching. If it is that severe, you might need to consult your doctor about trying a different medication, or sticking with oral antibiotics, it might be that this isn't the right one for you. How are you doing, now? Has there been any change?

Cephalexin antibiotics

All doctors have prescribed me to take 1 antibiotic 4 times a day, but another doctor said to take 2 tablets twice a day. Does it matter how you take them? Which method has the best effect? ## Hello, Kathy! How are you? It is consistent dosing that's important, you have to keep it in your system at a consistent regular level, in order for it to eradicate the bacteria. So, you can take it, either way, whichever works best for you, but keep the timing as precise as possible. If you take 2 of them twice a day, keep them as close to 12 hours apart as possible; or if you take it 4 times a day, keep them as close to 6 hours apart as possible. The U.S. FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anythin...

Polymyxin B Sulfate Ear Drops (Side Effects)
1 Reply RSS
Hi - I was diagnosed with an inner ear bacterial infection, that I'm treating with Polymyxin B (with Sulfate) - no other antibiotic in the ear drops. I'm on my 3rd day of treatment and feeling better but still have some itching and noticing signs of constipation. Is this normal? How long should I use these drops? ## You should follow the prescribing instructions regarding the duration of use. The itching and constipation can be side effects that some people experience from using it, according to FDA reports. You may also experience ear redness, irritation, and drainage. The sulfate is not an additional ingredient, it just specifies the precise chemical salt the medication has been derived from. How are you doing, now? Has there been any change?
