Cefpodoxime and probiotics

Should I double up on probiotics when taking cefpodoxime to protect my digestive tract? ## The FDA lists the typical side effects of Cefpodoxime as possibly including nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea. As to the probiotics, while they can help, there is always a risk of taking too much of a good thing, thus it is best to stick with the normal dosage, if you are going to take one. Recent NIH studies have found complications in people that are overusing them. Is there anything else I can help with?

monocef-o,100 and novamox, both are same medicine

I want to know the difference between novamox and monocef-o, 100. I'm having a kid of 3 years old, he suffering from fever from 1 week. I used crosin suspension for this bt after 5 to 6 hours again fever comes, also having cough, khasi, redness of eyes and cheek. Doctor suggested me to give him monocef but I'm having novamox.... ## They are both antibiotics, but they do not contain the same active ingredient. Monocef contains Cefpodoxime, and Novamox contains Amoxicillin. You should give him the one the doctor has instructed, because sometimes a specific antibiotic is required to treat certain bacterial infections, according to the NIH. The U.S. FDA lists the typical antibiotic side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea. ...

Antibiotics for life

I have been put on 200mg of Cefpodoxime for life. I had an infected TKR (knee replacement) and infection was not stopped. I have had now my third TKR and the doctor has put me on this antibiotic. It has kept the infection away for about a year and a half now but wondering what side effects or concerns I should have.

cefpodoxime and potassium clavulanate and Sodium fusidate cream

Is cefpodoxime & potassium clavulanatem tablets and sodium fusidate cream effective for genital herpes ## Hello, Bobby! How are you? No, these are antibiotics that treat bacterial infections. Herpes is caused by a virus, so these will not do anything to treat it. As a matter of fact, many people tend to be allergic to such products, when they are used genitally, so you could end up just making yourself worse. There is no cure for herpes, either orally or genitally, but if you consult your doctor, they can prescribe medications to help suppress it and prevent outbreaks. Is there anything else I can help with?

reddishn orange oval pill with 52 28 on one side

this reddish orange pill was given for my dog. I think it is a pain pill but can you verify exactly what it is ## I tried to find information on this, but was unsuccessful. If it isn't something that is used in both animals and humans, then I wouldn't expect it to be in the regular prescription databases. Nor will it be if it is only made specifically for veterinary usage. Have you considered calling your vet to ask them? If you find out what the name of it is, then I can easily find you more information on it. ## very late, but i just googled information on this pill. my dog was just prescribed the same thing. It's called simplicef ## SIMPLICEF (cefpodoxime proxetil) is the first oral once-daily cephalosporin that's FDA approved for veterinary use in the treatment of ca...
