Antibiotics and Infections

I've been having a sore throat for the past few days. The symptoms got worse every day. I started to sneeze, cough, and got a fever. I filled a prescription for some Penicillin called Ampicillina 500 mg per capsule from Mexico. I was instructed to take them every 8 hours, however, 3 pills a day seemed a bit much for me so I took one at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, May 23rd, and then another one 8 hours later. The next dose would have been at 7:00 a.m., on Wednesday, May 24th, but I didn't take one till 9:30 a.m.. I forgot to take another 8 hours later, and I remembered this at 10:39 p.m., so I took another dose at 10:39 p.m.. I set an alarm this time but must have slept through it as I didn't wake up until 8:30 a.m., and I took the next dose at 8:39 a.m.. I do feel worse today, howeve...

Pentrexyl (ampicilina) 500 mg

sore throat ## May I drink alcohol and take pentrexyl ampicilina? ## Well this is not a drug approved for use in the US, but I am assuming from the word 'ampicilina' that it is an Ampicillin based antibiotic. So first, let me start by saying that it is NEVER a good idea to mix alcohol and drugs of any type. The alcohol can cause serious problems in conjunction with the drugs and it can also aggravate side effects. In some cases, it can also negate the effect of the drugs, or amplify the effects of the alcohol. In the case of Ampicillin alcohol can block the intended effects of the drug, so you do not get the needed dosage from your medication, which can lead to further complications of whatever condition you are taking the antibiotic for. In addition, alcohol also has a synergis...

Aristocilin ampicillina 500 mg. (mexican)

I'm taking it for a urinary tract infection.. How often should it be taken? And can these cause problems if over the expiration date? (AP13 Ju 10 - Jun 16.) Thank you. ## Hi Kt, In my experience, antibiotic dosing regimens are typically determined by the severity and type of infection you're dealing with; so I would encourage you to discussion this with your doctor or pharmacist before moving forward. However, whenever I've been prescribed ampicillin or amoxicillin (500 mg), it's dosing was recommended to me at intervals of every 8 hours - or three times daily. Concerning the expiration date, I personally wouldn't take expired antibiotics (unless it's only been a few months max), but do know that the dates listed are generally "arbitrary" and do not actua...

Is Ampiclox harmful during pregnancy?

I want to know if Ampiclox from Beecham is harmful to a six weeks and five days pregnancy? ## Hi Stella - According to the MHRA, Ampiclox is a combination of penicillin type antibiotics Ampicillin and Cloxacillin.
