Amox Tr K Clv 500 125 Side Effects

I can't stop the diarrhea....please advise how to it... ## Because diarrhea is a common side effect of Amoxicillin, to me it makes sense to stop taking what's causing the issue in the first place, and then opt for another alternative or natural remedy to kill the infection. Eating plenty of bananas may help with the diarrhea temporarily if you're veering towards the end of your Amoxicillin treatment; otherwise I'd suggest looking into the use of Oregano Essential Oil (as it is heavily regarded as being a more potent antibiotic than this drug, minus the side effects). Just something to consider down the road. I hope this bit of info helps! ## Doctor RX'd AMOX TR-K CLV 500-125 mg, 14 pills 2x a day for a reoccuring bladder infection. So far I have taken 10 pills out of...

Tooth absence

I had a tooth absence and the dentist gave me Betamox 500g and Metzol 200mg after some few day the absence bust and I stopped using all those tablets .my problem is I've been experience pains on my private parts and itching bad at my vagina with lots of thick discharge inside. I thought it will get better but it is getting serious or more confusing symptoms everyday.I think it is caused by the medication ## Yes, Betamox which contains Amoxicillin, and Metzole, which contains Metronidazole, are antibiotics and they can cause yeast infections as side effects as listed by the NIH, and the symptoms you've described likely mean that's what you've developed. It will not go away on it's own, you will need to see your doctor, because it will require an antifungal infection t...

Sompraz Hp kit

I just want to know how to take Sompraz? There are 3 tablets for the morning & 3 tablets for the evening in one kit. Doctors have prescribed the same kit to me for 14 days. Do I have to take all 3 tablets collectively & at same time in the evening also for 14 days? ## Yes, because this actually contains 3 different medications, Amoxicillin, Clarithromycin and Esomaprazole, so you do need to take all 3 at each dosing. This is used to treat or prevent ulcers in people that are suspected to have the H. Pylori bacteria. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, stomach pain and diarrhea.

tooth, abscess, infection, swollen, mouth, lips, inner cheek

I had puss leaking from the gums but the dentist did not drain it. He just extracted my bottom row wisdom tooth and gave me Amoxicillin 500 MG 4x. The tooth extraction was about $541, does that sound to high for one tooth? I used all the drug and it seemed to help but I relapsed. My inner cheeks are swollen and it seems to be slightly swollen along my jawline. I had that before taking any prescription so it's not an allergic reaction. Also around my mouth feels a little swollen. What should I do next? The second time I went to the Dentist he didn't prescribe me anything and said the swelling was okay. He never mentioned my inner cheek swelling even though you can't miss it. Should I try another dose of Amoxicillin or something else or maybe 2 antibiotics? I'm on the verg...

Can you cut amoxicillin 875 in half?

Can I cut the big pink Amoxicillin 875 mg pill in half so that I can swallow it? It's too big for me. ## Hello amanda, Unfortunately I am unable to give you a direct answer with just knowing that it is an amoxicillin 875. Some brands of this medication are coated for extended release so that your body has time to properly absorb the active ingredients before your stomach acid from destroys them. So while it may be acceptable with some brands of the medication, it may not be with others. It is always better to play it safe and ask your doctor or pharmacy about the flexibility of your medications consumption. If you are struggling to administer your medication I suggest you discuss this with your doctor. There are options that you and your doctor can agree upon to ensure you are able ...

Mox 500 Mg -use ? and is it sufficient ?

i have throat infection.and doctor gave me Mox 500mg.. have been using it for 5 days... am coughing almost all night.i dont cough that much in the morning...am wondering when will this cure.. pls tell me what will Mox 500mg do to the throat..? is this sufficient or should i take something else.. or visit another doctor.. ## I have sever coughing and cold, can I use mox 500mg? ## From what I've found, this contains the active ingredient Amoxicillin, which is an antibiotic that's used to treat various types of infections. Thus, it will not be effective at treating the virus that causes a cold, nor the associated coughing and congestion. Sk, as I said, it can help with infections such as the one you have, but if the coughing is that severe, you will need something else to treat tha...
