F D 602

I found this pill in my medicine cabinet and was wondering what it is. It's a round pill, white/off white, on one side it's scored with an F on one half side and a D on the other. On the second side of the pill are the numbers 602. Can you tell me what it is. Thank You ## Hi Debbie. After trying several variations of "FD 602" I haven't been able to locate a match in any of the prescription drug databases. Just a thought, but it could be an over the counter medication, as OTC meds aren't required to be listed in the drug databases. I would consider taking the pill over to your local pharmacy and having it analyzed by their team to see what they come up with. Unfortunately, there's not much else you can do except take it to a lab and have it tested for ingredie...

Penicilina pomada

We LOVE this product and want more!! Please tell me about its current availability (my husband recalls it packaged in tiny red and white round tins that come in in a 'sleeve'). ## I'm sorry, but this site does not manufacture nor sell any products of any type. this is an information only website. The product you are referring to is a topical antibiotic ointment that contains Penicillin as the active ingredient to treat or prevent skin infections. In the U.S. anything containing Penicillin is only available by prescription, since it is an antibiotic. Where did you buy it at, when you picked it up, before? ## Yes, this product is great and I wish I could find some as well. My Mother bought some in Mexico many years ago. If you learn where to get it, please let me know. ## I bo...

Nitrofurantoin mono mac side effects

I am taking this medication for a UTI. I have been on it for a day and a half. This morning I was suddenly wakened by a loud sound in my ears (sounded like birds chirping), and a stinging pain across my face, down my spine into my arms and legs - worse on my left side than on my right. I sat up and walked around and it finally subsided, although it was hard to walk at first. It felt like my muscles didn't want to respond. I laid back down, as I was very tired, and in about a half hour it happened again, only worse. I am now up and looking for answers. Could this be from the nitrofurantoin? ## Hi, Sally! I'm not sure, it's hard to say. Some people have experienced some very odd side effects from antibiotics, it's happened to me, so I have to say that it is possible. What ...

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...

Jaw and gland pain and swelling

One week ago I experienced pain & swelling below my right jaw & into my neck. I started on Amoxicillan, 500 mg. twice a day. I am still having problems. I am out of the country where I have health insurance and am reluctant to spend $1000. deductible on my travel insurance policy to see a doctor. Should I keep taking the medication and hope for the best? ## You haven't seen doctor for it, at all yet? If it is due to something such as a blocked saliva gland, or a cyst, the antibiotic may not really help much. Is it sore to the touch? Are there any times that it appears to get worse, such as when you eat? Have you had any dental problems that you're aware of? ## Hi Verwon: To answer your questions, no I haven't seen a doctor yet.

Antibiotics and ear infection

I'm on Augmentin twice a day. I was just wondering if there is anything else I can do to speed things up to get rid of this ear infection? ## Not really, you just need to give the antibiotic time to do its work. How long have you been taking it? The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea. ## I take amoxicillin for ear infections and it always works ## Melted warm coconut oil has always helped me get rid of outer ear infections.

alevian duo side effects

This medication almost killed me, it gave me diarrhea so severe I ended up in the ER. My doctor gave me antibiotics and wanted me to continue taking Alevian Duo but nothing would stop the diarrhea until I decided to stop taking those awful pills, 24 hours after that I was OK. Months after that my doctor said we should try again and in less than 8 hours after the first pill of Alevian Duo I was feeling awful cramps and had the worse diarrhea. I would never take it again! ## Hello, Tummy! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about the experience you had. Not all medications work well for everyone that tries them, so I have to agree, if it caused you that severe of a problem, you should likely stay away from it. Have you tried any alternatives? ## I am having pain in my right side for the...

Was prescribed amoxicillin- clav 500 Was feeling well for 2 days. Now, I have this constant hissing noise in left ear. Also, my ear is like stereo!

Side effects of Fortaz

How long do the side effects of Fortaz last after you stop taking it? ## Hi Mary - I did not find specific information as far as how long you could be experiencing side effects after stopping the drug. I know from my own experience that it can be weeks in the case of other antibiotics. You might consider calling the manufacturer Teligent Pharma at 856-697-1441. DailyMed also has a pretty detailed list of possible adverse effects. May I ask what you are experiencing?
