Avoiding the complications of too many antibiotics

I took a week's prescription of Augmentum (28 doses) followed by 8 days of Clindamycin....the former was for an infection in my sphenoid sinus, the latter for an emergency dental issue requiring a root canal. My sinus condition is still unresolved. I have been warned that too much antibiotic can cause an intestinal condition that is very dangerous. How soon would I be safe to start another antibiotic for the sinus condition? ## You should follow your doctor's instructions on how, and when to take an antibiotic, and always finish each course of treatment, unless instructed otherwise. The FDA warns that most antibiotics can cause side effects, which may include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin rash. Ref: Antibiotic Information As to helping avoid complications, y...

Alka Seltzer Plus Antibiotics

Can You Take Alka Seltzer Plus if you are on Antibiotics? Please let me know. LomQ ## First, let's assume that you're talking about the Alka-Seltzer formulation with the most ingredients in it. In this case, I'm pretty sure it's Alka-Seltzer Plus (Severe Cold & Flu). It contains: - Acetaminophen - Chlorpheniramine - Dextromethorphan - Phenylephrine I used the drug interactions checker on WebMD against the following antibiotics: - Amoxicillin: No interactions found - Azithromycin: No interactions found - Clindamycin: No interactions found I would still recommend double checking with your doctor to make sure the cold medication will not reduce the efficacy of your antibiotics. ## What specific antibiotic are you asking about? Without knowing that, I can't really ch...

clindamycin side effects

I had an extraction on an abscess tooth about a week ago. Since I've been on clindamycin I've been sleepy and tired all the time. A little confusion as well, not much, but enough for me to notice. Is it normal for you to feel tired? I feel drowsy all the time since I've been taking it. ## This is a more rare side effect, but yes it does happen. Your body is fighting an infection of sorts. You will be tired. ## Opp is correct, those can be normal side effects of this antibiotic, as reported by the FDA, you may also experience nausea, headache, and diarrhea. It can also be coupled with symptoms of the infection, which will also take awhile to go away. How much longer will you be taking it? Are you on any other medications? Has there been any change? Not all antibiotics work fo...

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....

Clindamycin expiration date/cold storage

Can one take expired Clindamycin if kept in cold storage? ## If you are referring to the tablets, they are only good for one year from the date of prescribing, after that they should be disposed of. This is an antibiotic, which may cause side effects such as: nausea, drowsiness, skin rash and diarrhea. A liquid or cream formulation has a much shorter shelf-life.

Clindamycin and major nasal congestion

My nose continues to stuff up even after taking my prescribed drug, Clindamycin. I am taking three 150 mg doses every 8 hours, with some relief. ## Clindamycin is an antibiotic, as listed by MedlinePlus, it is used to treat bacterial infections, by itself,, it will not help alleviate nasal congestion. It may also cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, non-allergic skin rash, and headache. If your congestion is due to an issue, such as a sinus infection, it will take several days of taking this, in order for you to start seeing some improvement. How long have you been taking it? Are you on any other medications?

How long does clindamycin remain in your system after finishing treatment

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?

I just started taking Clindamycin and I'm on my third day. And Cefuroxime Axetil was recently prescribed to me this day after routine check up.
