Penicillin Overview

Penicillin (PCN or pen) is a group of antibiotics, derived originally from common moulds known as Penicillium moulds; which includes penicillin G (intravenous use), penicillin V (use by mouth), procaine penicillin, and benzathine penicillin (intramuscular use).

Penicilina pomada

We LOVE this product and want more!! Please tell me about its current availability (my husband recalls it packaged in tiny red and white round tins that come in in a 'sleeve'). ## I'm sorry, but this site does not manufacture nor sell any products of any type. this is an information only website. The product you are referring to is a topical antibiotic ointment that contains Penicillin as the active ingredient to treat or prevent skin infections. In the U.S. anything containing Penicillin is only available by prescription, since it is an antibiotic. Where did you buy it at, when you picked it up, before? ## Yes, this product is great and I wish I could find some as well. My Mother bought some in Mexico many years ago. If you learn where to get it, please let me know. ## I bo...

penicillin vk 500mg tabs

penicillin ## I have recently been prescribed Penicillin Vk 500 mg from a doctor. I was in SO much pain from my peridontal disease,(from my infection under my teeth), that the pain was excruciating. i went to an emergency hospital instead of a dentist. I have looked up this medication and it describes this certain medication to be used for throat, not an infection. Is this right? have you heard of anyone else being prescribed this medicine for a gum? mouth problem? ## This is a general antibiotic, it is used to treat many different types of infection, not just those of the throat or any other specific part of the body. I took it many times for dental infections. Here's a link to the monograph for more information: Broad spectrum antibiotics, such as this one, can be used to treat ma...

Sulfur & Cream of Tartar Wafer

Years ago, given to each of us once per day for keeping mosquitos from biting & if they bit us, would not cause problems. ## Where can I find Sulfur and Cream of Tarter Wafers? I took them as a kid and never had any problems with bug bites and ticks and we played in the woods every day. As I got older I never had acne. I wanted to have my daughter try it, but can not find them. They were a little flat wafer about the size of a quarter and chewable. The taste was not bad at all....and a somewhat sweet. Can someone help me find this product if it exists? ## Linda, glad to see that someone besides I remembers these wafers. I still have not found them anywhere but I will keep checking smalltowm pharmicies & hopefully locate them somewhere!!! I just know they were wonderful! ## I fou...

what is moxypen 500 used for

I have a problem with blockage in my ear. It started last week when I had the flu. My flu is sorted out now, but my left ear is still blocked. Is it ok if I use moxypen 500? ## I had a grommet fitted abou 20 years ago and i am very often getting ear infection. I get penicillin and prednicort from the chemist but doesnt cure the problem for longer than 3 months. The area around the ear stays swollen and I had a scan done but shows nothing of interest. The space above my collarbone is also swollen from the permanent swelling which was also checked out with no concern report. I do have a perforated eardrum and mostly apply a Voltaren gel drenched plug which helps a lot. The voltaren plug is only put in the ear canal not direct to the eardrum. I tried this as I do not have medical aid and i...

Is Gimalxina Amoxicilina 500 mg from Mexico Counterfeit? i.e. Placebo?

I have taken amoxicilina many times during my life; bought in the US and in Honduras. This last week I got a bottle of 60 capsulas while in Cozumel, to complete my antibiotic treatment (I lost the previous amoxi I was taking). I am very familiar with the smell and taste of amoxicilina and penicillin. I open the capsules when I take it, it tastes bad, and has a unique taste & smell (also in urine). The current bottle I just purchased, red & white capsulas, is a white powder with NO taste nor smell. Furthermore, it appears to have no affect on my sinusitis, and NO odor in urine. This is the first Amoxi I have ever taken that is like this (no taste & no odor. So common sense tells me I HAVE BEEN ROBBED. If this is COUNTERFEIT Amoxi, we need to STOP ITS SALE. The bottle I have s...

Calvepen Tabs 666mg

Prescribed for a sore throat ## This medication is unavailable in the U.S. and I am sorry to say that other countries do not regulate their prescription drugs as strictly as the FDA does. That said, finding information on them is very difficult, since there are no databases which list them all, like there are for U.S. prescription drugs. The only thing I can suggest is that you try asking your doctor or pharmacist for more information. ## was prescribed 21 of these and cant remember why, i still have them because i go better without them! ## i am on a prescribed course of calvepen 666mg, one to be taken 4 times a day. i went to the doctor with painfully swollen glands and all over body aches. it seems to be clearing up quite nicely. however, i am experiencing some strong side effects. t...
