Is Penicillin good for boils?

Hi, I got a boil on my ankle, my head and my other leg. I took antibiotics called penicillin. They started draining but all of them are still with the core. Is this pill good for this condition? Please help me. It's been 3 weeks. ## Did your doctor prescribe it for you? This is an antibiotic that is used to treat various types of bacterial infections. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea.

nitrofurantoin mono mcr 100 for staph infection related UTIs

My doctor told me that Cipro or Bactim are very good for treating UTIs caused by E-Coli, but that Nitrofurantoin Mono_MCR is better than the other two for treating UTIs caused by staph infection. Can you tell me any more about this. ## Hello, Ed! How are you? What else do you want to know about it? It is as simple as your doctor stated, different antibiotics are sometimes better at treating different things. It doesn't mean that the others can't be used, if necessary or if someone is allergic to the preferred choices, but it may take longer and be more difficult to eradicate the infection. They may all cause common side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. ## Yes Ed, those are good. I found for just E. coli the microdanton works best, for me. ...

im suffering from gas form with loose motion what medicine should i take

In between 4-5hrs gas forming in stomach and doing loose motion no pain. It started one month before while I taken antibiotic ( kalvox 1g & serodase 5mg) for tooth infection which was doctor prescribed. Medicine has stopped after 5days course still stomach problem is continuing . Please suggest a solution ## Did you mean Keflex? It contains the active ingredient Cephalexin, and is used to treat, or prevent various types of bacterial infections. The NIH does warn that diarrhea/loose motions, can be a normal side effect, which may linger for a week, or so, after you finish the medication. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, and non-allergic skin rash. How are you doing, now? Has there been any change?

How long do Augmentin side effects last?

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...

COULD I TAKE THIS MEDICINE ONLY FOR 3 DAYS? THANKS. ## people like you are the ones creating the super drug resistant bugs.

Amoxilcillin 500 mg veterinary usage and dosage for staph

My 80lb dog has a staph infection and i can't afford his med for another treatment. Can i give him my Amoxil and how much? ## Hello Jc! How are you? I would suggest asking his veterinarian, since they are familiar with the use of such medications in animals. There shouldn't be a problem with him taking it, since it is the same as what's used for animals, but the dosing can vary depending on the severity of the infection and his body weight. Is there anything else I can help with? ## My 50+ lb dog has an infection between her toes, she had it about a month, it may be a prickly pear stuck in there. Can i give her 1/2 875 amox-clav-pot? Appreciate any help. PS - I just found this site and seems great !!!! ## Ali, if a prickly pear is still in there, an antibiotic is not likely ...

Does clindamycin hcl have an expiration date

I 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....

Can you cut amoxicillin 875 in half?

Can I cut the big pink Amoxicillin 875 mg pill in half so that I can swallow it? It's too big for me. ## Hello amanda, Unfortunately I am unable to give you a direct answer with just knowing that it is an amoxicillin 875. Some brands of this medication are coated for extended release so that your body has time to properly absorb the active ingredients before your stomach acid from destroys them. So while it may be acceptable with some brands of the medication, it may not be with others. It is always better to play it safe and ask your doctor or pharmacy about the flexibility of your medications consumption. If you are struggling to administer your medication I suggest you discuss this with your doctor. There are options that you and your doctor can agree upon to ensure you are able ...

I feel ok now but my stomach pains bothering me former dr prescribed me of tecta. i took one tablet just worried for my liver or any organs after taking an expired antibiotics. i took it 4 days every 8 hours.. ## Expired antibiotics can get you a dose of toxicology. It depends on how long and which kinds go bad. ## Hello, Jojie! How are you? Expired Amoxicillin isn't one that gets dangerous, once expired, but it does start to lose effectiveness, so it may not work as well as it did, when it was new and this could create the risk of your developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. ...

nitrofurantoin side effects

I am 76 years old. I was prescribed Nitrofurantoin 50 MG twice a day for a UTI. On the 11th day I developed a red rash all over my legs, huge hives everywhere which itched incessantly, swelling of face and lips and extreme fatigue. The swelling, hives and rash went away after 3 - 4 days, but now, 10 days after that I still have low energy which isn't like me ## Hello, Gingos! How are you doing? I am so sorry about the reaction you had. That really sounds like you are allergic to it and should make sure not to take it again in the future. Have you consulted your doctor? I had an allergic reaction to one myself last year and it's really just a matter of time for all of the symptoms to improve, it took about a month for all of mine to go away and for me to feel back to normal. ## C...

False positive drug test for benzos

I'm on probation and went in to take my random U/A yesterday. I thought I had nothing to worry about cause I don't do drugs. The dipstick test came back positive for benzos and they said they are sending it to the lab. I am currently taking cephlaxin (keflex) bactrim ds and tramadol. I read that the bactrim can cause a false positive. When it goes to the lab will they see that there aren't benzos in my system? I'm kinda freaking out. ## I'm on probation can I take metformin and A a anabiotic with that and it said that I job positive for benzo and I just want to know if I got anything to worry about because I don't do drugs I don't like taking pills I bet you like taking the medication that I have but since I'm diabetic and I have a infection in my chest I...

Thus, it will not be effective at treating the virus that causes a cold, nor the associated coughing and congestion. Sk, as I said, it can help with infections such as the one you have, but if the coughing is that severe, you will need something else to treat tha...

How long does clindamycin remain in your system after finishing treatment

I am finishing a 7 day dose of clindamycin 300 mg taken once every 8 hours on Friday, which leaves me with no weekend coverage if dental infection isn't gone. My dentist told me yesterday that it can remain in my system for awhile, is this true? If so, for how long? ## Hello, Jana! How are you? Yes, that is correct. However, how is the infection doing? If the antibiotic is working, there should be no worsening after being on it for a full 24 hours and you should start to see some improvement after taking it for a full 3 days. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. ## I had a severe headache with flushed feeling after taking clindesse vaginally.never again bad drug ## Took clind...
