I feel ok now but my stomach pains bothering me now..my former dr prescribed me of tecta. i took one tablet ..im just worried for my liver or any organs after taking an expired antibiotics. i took it 4 days every 8 hours.. ## Expired antibiotics can get you a dose of toxicology. It depends on how long and which kinds go bad. ## Hello, Jojie! How are you? Expired Amoxicillin isn't one that gets dangerous, once expired, but it does start to lose effectiveness, so it may not work as well as it did, when it was new and this could create the risk of your developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. ...

Amoxilcillin 500 mg veterinary usage and dosage for staph

My 80lb dog has a staph infection and i can't afford his med for another treatment. Can i give him my Amoxil and how much? ## Hello Jc! How are you? I would suggest asking his veterinarian, since they are familiar with the use of such medications in animals. There shouldn't be a problem with him taking it, since it is the same as what's used for animals, but the dosing can vary depending on the severity of the infection and his body weight. Is there anything else I can help with? ## My 50+ lb dog has an infection between her toes, she had it about a month, it may be a prickly pear stuck in there. Can i give her 1/2 875 amox-clav-pot? Appreciate any help. PS - I just found this site and seems great !!!! ## Ali, if a prickly pear is still in there, an antibiotic is not likely ...

interactions with theraflu

I would like to know if I can use theraflu with amoxicillin 500 mg? ## Hi Kara, According to the University of Maryland Medical Center (umm.edu / drug interaction tool), there are no interactions listed between Amoxicillin and the ingredients found in Theraflu (Acetaminophen + Diphenhydramine + Phenylephrine). While this does not necessarily mean that no interactions exist, it is my understanding that this combination is generally regarded as safe. I, myself have also taken this combination in the past without any notable side effects that I can recall. Nevertheless, if you have any doubts it's probably best to contact your doctor just to be sure. I hope this helps!

does amoxicillin go bad with age?

I bought 100 amoxicillin caps about 3 years ago and stored them in a dark place and I was curious if they would still be good to take. ## does amoxicillin expire ## don't use it. amoxicillin goes bad a year from when you bought it. ## Actually, no, it does not go bad, it just loses efficacy, so it is not as strong or as potent as when you first bought, starting from about 18 months past the manufacture date. You should never self-diagnose or self-treat with antibiotics anyway, there are so many other conditions that will not respond to them, so they have no effect, and you of course run the risk of developing an antibiotic resistant strain of something with overuse, so please see your doctor. ## First of all, why do you just have the drug sitting around? Did you take it and not fini...

Amoxicillin taken with liquids other than water

I would appreciate any information about taking amoxicillin capsules with liquids such as fruit juices (especially citric), carbonated beverages, and other liquids like Gatorade. I was told that such liquids, which contain acids, can actually destroy the drug. This is an important question for me. Thanks. ## Best to take with full glass of water there is delayed absorption if taken with food. ## Can Amoxicillin be taken with milk? ## You can take it with pretty much whatever you want, they just suggest water because that provides the fasted and easiest method of absorption. Other beverages, such as Milk, Juice and etc. may delay the absorption. ## can i have some drink with alcool during taking amoxicillin cps? ## No. You CANNOT take amoxicillin with alcohol AT ALL. I repeat DO NOT ## C...

Amoxil dosages

My son is 11 and weighs 37.8 kilos. 6 days ago he had 39.8 temps and was diagnosed with tonsillitis. The doctor prescribed amoxil 250mg / 5ml @ 10ml / 3 times a day with a repeat.... This would see him on the antibiotic for roughly 6 to 7 days... I've since been to my regular doctor and she said 'amoxil' would not have been her 1st choice for this condition but that there was no point changing it now as he'd already been on them for a couple of days. She also said I could stop them after 5 days as this would be a sufficient dose. However we are always told to finish the full course of antibiotics generally, standard procedure when taking antibiotics. Is this really ok to stop them after 5 days (before all the contents in the bottle are finished)? I only ask because in th...
