pacofen causes insomnia?

I can't sleep last night after taking pacofen together with clarithromycin tablet (antibiotic) for my prolonged fever. I am suspecting that the caffeine in pacofen is keeping me awake. Is this right? If so, I am going to take pacofen only in day time. ## Yes, Caffeine is a stimulant that increases mental alertness and can cause insomnia. Learn more Caffeine details here. To treat a fever, the caffeine and codeine in this medication really isn't necessary. What you need to help break a fever is just the Paracetamol. Learn more Paracetamol details here. Have you consulted your doctor? ## I need your advice please help me, when I took claritromycin I cant sleep, what other alternative as a substitute of this pill?

Antibiotic White Oval Pill

If the pharmacy don't have clithromyocin what would be a good substitute ## Hi Florence, Based on my research, Clarithromycin is in a group of drugs classified as Macrolide Antibiotics. Below is a list of a couple other medications that are also classified as Macrolide Antibiotics. -Dificid generic name: fidaxomicin -Erythrocin generic name: erythromycin -Zithromax generic name: azithromycin You may be able to use one of the medications I listed as a substitute for Clarithromycin, but they are still different medications and may effect you differently; so to be safe I would consult a doctor or pharmacist before hand.

Clacee 500 Mg Side Effects

I am currently using Clacee (500 mg) for a stomach ulcer, but I notice that it gave me a bitter taste, too much itching, and a rash under my shoulder blades. It also gave me too much gas. Are these typical side effects of Clacee? ## Hi Naomi, Based on my research, the following symptoms you had mentioned, are listed as side effects of Clarithromycin (Clacee): itching gas change in taste Ref: nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/meds/a692005.html#side-effects NOTE: Itching is categorized as a "severe" side effect that you should report to your doctor immediately.

G E Clarithromycin

I have a bitter taste in my mouth, I have been taking this med for 4 days, is this a side effect? I wake up in the night and have such a bitter taste, I brush my teeth, gargle with listerine, but nothing helps. Food doesn't taste right. I have 3 more days, should I continue? ## Ironically enough, "change in taste" is listed word for word as a general side effect of Clarithromycin. I think if it becomes too bothersome or severe, you may want to consider talking to your doctor about any other alternative antibiotics that can replace Clarithromycin for the remaining 3 days. It's likely that it may not go away until you stop taking what's causing it to begin with. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Clarithromycin Details I hope this info helps!

I was prescribed Clarithromycin 14 x 500mg by my doctor at Christmas for a cold that seemed to be developing into a chest infection. I didn't want to be ill during Christmas so I got the prescription dispensed. In the event I didn't need to take it but the flu I now have has developed into a chest infection. Normally I am prescribed 250mg twice daily for 7 days. Could I take 500mg once per day for 7 days or should I cut the 500mg pill and take it as 250mg twice daily. I am concerned about compromising the efficiency of the treatment. Any advice? ## What are the instructions on the prescription? The usual dosing for that type of infection is 500mgs, every 12 hours, for 7 days, which probably explains why he gave you 14 tablets. Learn more Clarithromycin details here. Adjusting it...
