Nitrofur Mac and the time it takes to leave your system

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...

Levaquin has destroyed my quality of life

I had a minor sinus infection and my Doc prescribed two weeks worth of levaquin. My side effects were instant. I had muscle and joint pain and weakness. Doc said it was normal.

Can You Drink Alcohol While Taking Sulfamethoxazole Tmp

almost everybody here talks about drinking much. My question is if I take a simple cup of red wine after my dinner at 8 and then take my sulfa at 12. I really do not think that a cup of good red table wine would be so disastrous as some readers have commented. Thank you. ## I think your intuition is correct - moderation is the key. One cup of red wine should not result in a bad reaction, although it may increase certain effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, or upset stomach. Be sure to learn about the possible side effects from the drug itself so that you can monitor how you feel and report any adverse effects to your doctor if need be. You can see a more comprehensive list on the page for Sulfamethoxazole Details. Hope this helps! ## Thank you very much! ## If I skip my medicine for o...

While taking doxycycline will tanning hurt you? ## I dont know,but I'm trying to figure out the side effects of being out in the sun, as in burnt while on this medicine, because I'm getting a long bump bump, like I've been hit in the head, and my skin feels like it is on fire. How can I find out the side effcts of this antibiotic and the sun, because I'm getting a little worried. ## When I rec'd my bottle, it had a sticker on it that says avoid exposure to excessive sunlight. I believe it makes you more sensitive. I did go to the tanning bed on day two of the meds, but it had been several hours since I took my dose and I just stayed half as long as usual. I didn't burn badly, but I did get more than usual in only half the time. ## Yes, Stephanie is correct, it ma...

Invanz side effects

After a year treating of treating a bladder infection using 5 antibiotics and finally sent to infectious disease. I had a PICC line put in and received 28 days of 1Gm of Invanz in an outpatient infusion center. Like an idiot never thought to ask if Medicare would cover it. The side effects were awful. It really exacerbated my fibromyalgia. Extreme fatigue, nausea, roaring in my head. I've been off it for four days. How long before it's out of my system? The bacteria was a very resistant E.coli.

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...

miracles from the vault lymes disease

is there a natural cure for lymes disease ## Hello, Tom! How are you? No, Lymes requires treatment with antibiotics, how much and how long they need to be taken depends on the severity of the disease. The FDA lists the typical side effects of antibiotic treatment as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ## The latest thing I read about for Lyme disease is intravenous Vitamin C. You'll have find a dr. of Alternative Medicine eo do that. I get intravenous drips to remove plaque from the arteries but that is a similar idea. ## In answer to the question of what kind of antibiotics my daughter is on, I have the information. Amoxicillin - Metrodizonale - Minocycline. She has been on these, on and off fo...

Pentrexyl (ampicilina) 500 mg

sore throat ## May I drink alcohol and take pentrexyl ampicilina? ## Well this is not a drug approved for use in the US, but I am assuming from the word 'ampicilina' that it is an Ampicillin based antibiotic. So first, let me start by saying that it is NEVER a good idea to mix alcohol and drugs of any type. The alcohol can cause serious problems in conjunction with the drugs and it can also aggravate side effects. In some cases, it can also negate the effect of the drugs, or amplify the effects of the alcohol. In the case of Ampicillin alcohol can block the intended effects of the drug, so you do not get the needed dosage from your medication, which can lead to further complications of whatever condition you are taking the antibiotic for. In addition, alcohol also has a synergis...

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...

what is moxymax 250 used for

Today I ate red meat porridge chakalaka and potato salad. Later I had an itchy rash all over my body. Can I use moxymax for the rash? ## This medication is an antibiotic, it is only useful at treating, or preventing bacterial infections, so it will not do anything to help with an allergic reaction. The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and diarrhea. Was there something different in these foods? It sounds like you might be having an allergic reaction to something. Have you used different laundry detergent, body soap, or anything else recently? ## I have pain in stomach n ma blood (periods)having clots why does its happen that? ## My husband had headache and is heating they give her moxymax 250 I want to know is for ## How old are you ho...

Diverticulitis and Antibiotics

I have "Diverticulitis and I'm taking Amoxicillin Clavulanate Potassium tablets 875mg. This 2nd day. I've taken 3 already. The doctor told me to take it twice a day for 10 days. When should I see improvement? And should I be on a liquid diet or low residue diet? Thanks for your help! ## Hello, Barbara! How are you? The FDA classifies this mediation as being an antibiotic and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. As to when you should see an improvement, there's really no way to say. Diverticulitis can be very tricky to treat and may not respond to the initial course of antibiotics. It's kind of a wait and see game. As to eating, you should stay away from nuts, seeds, berries and popcorn. Eat a ...
