How long does clindamycin remain in your system after finishing treatment
25 Replies RSS Share
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...

500 mg cipro vs penicillin
2 Replies RSS Share
Is nipecil acronym penicillon from Mexico, the same as ciprofloxacin? ## Hello, James! How are you? No, the FDA lists Nipecil as containing Penicillin, which is an antibiotic, but it's in a different class than Ciprofloxacin. Not all are effective at eradicating the same bacteria, so you should always take the one your doctor has prescribed. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ## What is the difference between ciprofloxacin HCA 500 and penicillin a nipecil 500 and is it safe to use on a diverticulitis infection? My husband has diverticulitis and he's in pain and had bacteria stuck in his colon. Can he use penicillin a nipecil 500 instead of ciprofloxacin? Thank you

Post a Reply Share
Hello, I was diagnosed with pneumonia yesterday and prescribed the Zpack. I took the first dose which is 2 pills together. I found out after this that because I am on Effexor that that antibiotic is not recommended for me to take because it can interact with eachother and can cause heart issues. They are starting me on Augmentin today. Is it safe to take today being that I just took the first dose of the Zpack yesterday?

Reaction to Bactrim

I am taking Bactrim for a UTI and have side effects of hands shaking, gassy stomach, headache, loss of appetite, and irritability. There are 4 pills left and I am afraid to finish them. Is a substitute for Bactrim DS tablet SMX-TMP DS TAB? The script is 2 tablets twice a day. Should I just discontinue them or reduce them to one a day? ## Those can be normal side effects of this medication, according to FDA reports. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, and diarrhea. And SMX-TMP DS is just an abbreviation for the ingredients in Bactrim DS. An allergic reaction is listed by the FDA as possibly including fever, chills, trouble breathing, hives, and swelling. This is a very strong antibiotic, though it is not usually the first choice for a UTI. Are you on any other medications? Have yo...

Pill Imprint E85

What is it used for? I forgot. I know I got them from my doctor a while ago, but the bottle broke & I only had about 6 left anyway, so I put them in w/ my other bottle & forgot what they actually are for. I'm thinking it's for a cold? Am I correct? Thanks. ## A white, oval tablet with the marking E on one side and 85 on the other is manufactured by Greenstone Limited, and they list it as containing 500mgs of Penicillin V, it is an antibiotic that is most commonly used to treat, or prevent bacterial infections. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea. It will not treat a cold, since colds are caused by viruses. Is there anything else I can help with?

Still in pain after taking antibiotics for one week
2 Replies RSS Share
Hi, I have been in pain for some time now. I went to my dentist a 1 1/2 weeks ago. There is no swelling and no clearly visible reason on the X-rays as to explain why I am in pain. The dentist thinks it could be 1 of 2 teeth that are next to each other but can't be sure. He put me on clindamycin and said if the pain goes away then we know it was a small infection. But if the pain doesn't go away we will have to see what else could be going on. Well, I have been taking the clindamycin for one week today and have 4 more days of pills left but I am still in pain and taking too much ibuprohen. Do you gave any idea what else could be causing my pain? What do you think my dentist will look at when I go back? ## Hello, Dee! How are you? If there's nothing visible and nothing showed ...

Hi, just wondered if it's safe to take alcohol with "pinamox caps 500mg amoxicillin".. I assumed it wasn't until I looked at the other medicine (a cough bottle) that I was prescribed by the same doctor.. It has ethanol (alcohol) in it. I finish big exams soon and have been looking forward to a cocktail party for ages.. If it's dangerous to take the course of tablets with alcohol then I'm considering not taking the tablets (three a day) for the day of the celebrations. Am I crazy? ## There are always dangers if you mix a medication with alcohol, however, the general reason you are warned about it withy Amoxicillin is because it can worsen the side effects. If you've been experiencing anything, like the dizziness, drowsiness and nausea, then the alcohol could m...

Nitrophurantoin adverse side effects
2 Replies RSS Share
After just one 50mg capsule I developed a massive headache, nausea, diarrohea with blood, nose bleed and just wanted to sleep. After persevering and another 6 capsules I thought I was going to be hospitalized, in all my life I have never been so ill and could no longer function. I spoke to my Dr and she saw me immediately and was wanting me to have a CAT scan, I felt so ill I declined as I was certain it was the drug. I was then prescribed Trimethoprim, these also had side effects but manageable and of course it took several days getting over being poisoned. I have never taken antibiotics before so had no idea if I was allergic to any, it is like russian roulette. The side effects of this drug are serious and at no point was I informed to be cautious in case they occurred, why? I feel l...

I was on this for 10 days, 3xs a day for an eye infection. Have been finished for almost 1 week and was just curious how long it takes to fully leave your system?

doxycycline hyclate 20 mg can this be used for tooth abscess?
3 Replies RSS Share
No money right now for a dentist and I have a new bottle of doxycyline hyclate in 20 mg form (using for acne) pill says lci on one side and 1336 on the other, small round white. I have a tooth abscess and want to know if I can increase the dosage safely to 100 mg per day to fight the infection? ## @Jason, Based on my research, Doxycycline can be used for a tooth abscess. The usual adult dose for a severe bacterial infection is listed at 100mg orally every 12 hours for 7 to 10 days; (but the 100mg may also be taken once daily as a "maintenance" dose for less severe infections). My only question to you would be do you have enough pills to run a full course of treatment, in order to fully eradicate the infection? The last thing you'd want is drug resistant bacteria, so I do hop...
