This medication is listed as containing Amoxicillin, which is an antibiotic that's used to treat or prevent bacterial infections.

I took Norflox TZ twice daily for 3 days for loose motion; now observing blood in my stool. Can this be related to Norflox? ## Are you seeing bright red fresh blood, or is old and black? Because if it's red and fresh, then there's a good chance that is just from your outer anal area and due to irritation from the diarrhea. Learn more Norfloxacin details here. Learn more Tinidazole details here. If you are bleeding heavily, or if it's old black blood, you should seek medical attention.

How long do Augmentin side effects last?
73 Replies RSS Share
Hi all, Firstly a disclaimer, if you have just eaten and have a soft stomach, avoid this post. You've been warned. My dentist prescribed a two week regime of Augmentin for minor work that needs to be performed on a tooth. I finished the prescription one week ago. And I still have some odd side effects. Before I started taking this, I had a normal energy level where I could exercise and do my work, etc. Now I have wayyyyyy too much energy and even though I start to feel drowsy at my regular time when I got to bed, I can't fall asleep until 2 -3 hours later. The other effect I've been experiencing are dry lips. This is annoying. There is no change in saliva and my mouth is just as moist as before taking Augmentin. Also during the last three weeks it's been as my appetite h...

Ciprofloxacn For Upper Respiratory Infection
2 Replies RSS Share
Is Cipro an antibiotic given for an Upper Resp. Infection? I ## Hi Cheri, The answer to your question is "yes", Ciprofloxacin can be used to treat a number of infections including: Upper and Lower respiratory tract infections (although it is not recommended as a first-line antibiotic choice for either of them). I would actually consider discussing with your doctor and/or pharmacy whether or not they think you should be using some other antibiotic (depending on how severe the infection is). The reason being, is that if you don't use the most effective antibiotic for your infection, then the bacteria can build a resistance to what you may be using; possibly rendering the treatment useless in the end. So yeah, I think it really depends on how severe your infection really is. If...

If allergic to Levaquin should I take Cipro
13 Replies RSS Share
I broke out with skin blisters while taking Levaquin 3 years ago. Today my Doctor has put me on Cipro. My question is if I am allergic to Levaquin will I have the same reaction with Cipro ## Although both medications are in the same fluoroquinolone drug class, I don't believe you'd experience the same type of reaction with a different brand. Your allergic reaction could've also been due to one or more inactive ingredients (binders/fillers) that may have been present in the Levaquin and not necessarily in Ciprofloxacin. Have you started taking the Ciprofloxacin yet with any success? ## I started with Cipro on Tuesday and have not seen any adverse reactions to it. I need to take it twice a day for 14 days so far so good. I will keep you apprised of the results. ## I did not ha...

Pentrexyl for toothache
2 Replies RSS Share
I have a bad toothache and it's making my head and ear hurt can I take pentrexyl ## Hello, Ray! How are you? I'm sorry about the tooth ache. Pentrexyl contains Ampicillin, which is an antibiotic, so it can be used to treat dental infections. The FDA classifies it as an antibiotic and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. However, you need to check with your dentist to make sure that its due to an infection, because taking it, if you don't have one could result in your developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. And, if you do have a dental infection, an antibiotic will not resolve whatever underlying issue caused the infection, such as a deep dental cary. That will still need to be corrected, or the infe...

Is Gimalxina Amoxicilina 500 mg from Mexico Counterfeit? i.e. Placebo?
12 Replies RSS Share
I have taken amoxicilina many times during my life; bought in the US and in Honduras. This last week I got a bottle of 60 capsulas while in Cozumel, to complete my antibiotic treatment (I lost the previous amoxi I was taking). I am very familiar with the smell and taste of amoxicilina and penicillin. I open the capsules when I take it, it tastes bad, and has a unique taste & smell (also in urine). The current bottle I just purchased, red & white capsulas, is a white powder with NO taste nor smell. Furthermore, it appears to have no affect on my sinusitis, and NO odor in urine. This is the first Amoxi I have ever taken that is like this (no taste & no odor. So common sense tells me I HAVE BEEN ROBBED. If this is COUNTERFEIT Amoxi, we need to STOP ITS SALE. The bottle I have s...

Since you are early in your pregnancy and have stopped taking it, the risks are not very high. Most medications cause greater risk, when taken during late pregnancy, as the baby develops more.

Antibiotics for penis infection

I used an old shaving stick of mine that has been in the bathroom for about 3 months and 3 days later, i've got this milky discharge coming from my penis. Thinking it was an infection, I used ciprofloxacin 500mg, flucloxacillin 500 mg and tetracycline 250mg for a week, but yesterday I got tired of taking the drugs. Problem is, the milky discharge came back today. Any advice pls? ## I used my old shaving stick that has been kept for like 2 months and applied my deodorant on the shaved place, but some days later, my penis head got swollen. So I used ampicillin and the swollen part went down, but now I am having pus-like discharge coming from my penis, but no frequent urge to urinate. Do I have an infection?
