is it safe to take 8 pills of eryko 250 per day?

my stamach is paining after i take 2 pills of eryko 250 at a sametime as dr told me to take 2 pills every 4 hours which means 8 pills per day. So what i should do as my stamach keep paining? ## are you taking the ERKO short term? it sounds like a "stack" dose. You could be allergic. Antibiotics are hard on the stomach, you may need to call your dr. you may be allergic to them. ## @Thabanie, "Just want to help" may be correct, you could be allergic to Eryko 250.

Eryocin 250 Drug Information

Can we use this tablet for trot pain? ## I'm not certain what you are referring to when you say trot pain; but Erycin (also known by its generic name Erythromycin) is a macrolide antibiotic used in replacement for people who have an allergy to penicillins. It can be used for dental abscess; chlamydia infection; strep throat; bowel preparation; and syphilis, among other uses as well. That said, I don't think it can be used for specifically for pain, but it may be a good idea to confirm that with your doctor (depending on the circumstance), since it may have an indirect effect to help with pain by getting rid of an infection that may have been causing pain. Does that make sense? You can view a more detailed description of the drug by clicking on the link below... If you have any m...
