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

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....

bactrim - lingering side effects

Took bactrim for l-1/2 days. Blood sugar plummetted, severe GI problems, anxiety through the roof! Immediately stopped taking. This was 3 months ago. Side effects continue although slowly improving.

Betamox and STI's

Can Betamox 500 assist in treating STI's? I have a fungal infection on my male private part. ## It might, and you should take it if a doctor has instructed you to do so. The NIH lists its typical side effects of Betamox (Amoxicillin) as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea. ## I've been experiencing vaginal itching and burning, especially drug intercourse. I have been taking Betamox and it hasn't helped. ## Asnath, hopefully your doctor can help you to determine the exact nature of your infection. Amoxicillin (international brand Betamox) is an antibiotic. If your infection is not bacterial I don't know if it would be a proper medicine to take. Could you be dealing with a fungal infection?

Hi. I usually am prescribed amoxicillin by my dentist (4 tablets of 500mg 1 hour before appointment).

It can range anywhere from 10 to 14 days and from 2 to 3 times a day. What directions did your doctor provide? This anti...

acido nalidixico fenazopiridina

I got this in Mexico last week for a bladder infection. Is this just for the pain of a bladder infection? Or does it help cure one too? ## The active ingredients are 500mgs of Nalidixic Acid and 50mgs of Phenazopyridine, it is commonly used to treat urinary tract infections, because some bacteria that cause them are sensitive to the acid and will be killed by it. That said, however, it is not an antibiotic, so it may help clear it up, but there is also a chance that it won't. The main side effect warned about when taking this is photo-sensitivity. Is there anything else I can help you with? ## I live in Mexico and have been taking Acido Nalidixico Fenazopiridina for several days now for a urinary tract infection. (self diagnosed as I know the symptoms since I have had many) However,...

Amoxicillin dosage for dogs

80 lb dog = how much amoxicillin? ## I have 250mg Amoxicillin capsules, but my dog only needs 60mg. How would I handle this? Rocky weighs 6 1/2 lbs. I believe I calculated the dose correctly. ## Can the Amoxicillin 400 mg (bmp 196) green tablets be crushed and mixed with food to give to my dog? ## How much amoxicillin tr k clv 500/125 is safe for an 8lb dog? She has skin irritation after her cycle. ## Hello, According to the NIH "The recommended dose of amoxicillin in dogs and cats is 5-10mg/pound" so a dog who is 80 lbs should have 400-800 mg. Since this is such a wide gap I suggest you call into your vet office and see what they suggest, typically if they have your animal on file they will have a good estimate of what they should have. Best wishes and happy holidays.

I bought a bottle of Kenamox in Progresso mex. Is it safe to take? ## Hello, Dean! How are you? I'm having trouble finding any definitive information on this medication.

Is Doxycycline a sulfa drug?

Can I take Doxycycline 100 mg tablets if I have a sulfa allergy? ## Hi Carol, according to an article I read from the Mayo Clinic, Doxycycline is not listed as a sulfa drug, so you should be okay to take it as prescribed. I also cross referenced the Wikipedia page on Sulfonamides, and it too did not list Doxycycline. If you have other allergies or sensitivities, I'd just double check the inactive ingredients as well to ensure that there is nothing else in there that could disagree with you. If you can refer to the National Drug Code (NDC) printed on your prescription label it should be pretty easy to find the list of inactive ingredients. I hope this helps and feel free to write back!

Canine Keflex/Cephalexin

Can Canine Keflex/Cephalexin 500mg also be taken by humans? It was given to my dog for an ear infection since there are some left I was wondering if I could take the rest for an upper respiratory infection (due to seasonal allergies)? The capsule is pale green in color with the # 219 printed on the capsule. Thanks ## My dog has been chewing himself raw and i was giving him amoxicillin. I want to know is it safe I give him a light green pill that says 219 219 on it, since I ran out of the amoxicillin? ## Hello BJ, According to the NIH this pill is intended for animal use only, the bottle itself states that if consumed by you on accident that you should immediately consult your doctor and go the ER.

Neurological damage from Cipro?

I took Cipro for a UTI and within 24 hrs of starting it began to have issues with breathing and energy and balance. After finishing the drug things got worse. And the thing that bothers me most is that my Dr. rx'ed the drug for a UTI BEFORE getting the lab work... the bacteria was e-coli.... and Cipro didn't kill it!!! I still had the UTI.... Meanwhile it is now 7 months since I took the drug and I'm still having massive issues with balance and extreme fatigue. I have a friend who took it and lost his color vision for 2 yrs. He also experienced balance issues, brain fog and extreme fatigue. I'd like to know of others who have similar issues, how long it has been since the last dose and what conditions they are still suffering from. Please talk to me about your experience...
