bmp 205

round, white, think this is clavamox - need to know mg ## Same marking, round peach colored pill. What is it? Augmentin? ## We placed a call into GlaxoSmithKline (we assumed them to be the manufacturer because SmithklineBeecham manufactures other meds with BMP in the inscription) Anyways, after spending several minutes searching their reference materials, they were unable to find an exact match for this one. Even the lady on the phone was perplexed, because her reference materials encompass ALL manufactuered drugs, not just theirs. Is there any way the imprint code could be misread or something slightly different? Please let us know where you found or obtained this med, whether it was in the U.S. or not. Also, if you have a way of asking the prescribing pharmacist that might narrow thin...

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...

Nitrofurantoin mono/Mac 100mg side effects

After taking this medication for three days, I did not experience any side effects except for intense headaches right after taking it. On the fourth day I woke up with extreme shortness of breath, feeling of heaviness in my chest, chills, and joint pain. I have never had this sort of reaction to an antibiotic before, or any sort of medicine for that matter, so I thought I might have the flu. I went to the doctor and tested negative for the flu and he said I may have been suffering from really bad allergies. I forgot to take both of the antibiotic pills that day and woke up the next morning feeling better. I then took two pills, one in the afternoon and one at night, and woke up the next day the same as the fourth day. Are these normal side effects for this antibiotic? Also, what about t...
