Affect of Purbac on Oral Contraception

I have been using Purbac for just over a year to treat adult acne. I am currently using a Mirena contraceptive. Will the use of Purbac in any way decrease the effectivness of Mirena and result in pregnancy? ## while being on triphasil,and using purbac at the same time.will this increase your chances of getiing pregnant? ## Purbac is an antibiotic and they most commonly affect oral contraceptives the contain a form of estrogen. According to NIH reports, they do not normally cause a problem with inserts, such as Mirena, that contain only a form of progesterone, but they may cause Triphasil to be less effective. The NIH warns that other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, irregular bleeding, and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have the implant and have be...


does purbac let you brake out more in the beginnig stage for use for acne treatment before clearing your skin? ## When i 1st got in the pharmacy i had a minor rush on my face,so the pharmacist priscribed purbac for me,its been two day im taking it and i think the rash is getting worse than before,is it normal or should i live the medicine? ## Yes, that is a possibility, according to NIH reports, other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, and diarrhea. Are either of you on any other medications? Thelma, this might not be appropriate to treat a basic skin rash, it is an antibiotic that is only useful for treating bacterial infections.

Purbac Side effects

I was on Purbac treatment for my Acne for six months. I have noticed that my stommach became much bigger during this time. An irodologist said that my gall bladder was not normal therefore i was getting fatter. Could this be the side effect of Purbac? What do i do now? Is it a long term effect? ## @mervin, ive used perbac before but whenever my dermotoligist prescribed it to me she told me to buy intestinal flora meds aswell as purbac can harm ur gut so maybe its because u take purbac on its own? try meds like lactovita or eat a whole lot of wheat lol :) ## @ Olivia I have been using purbac for almost a month now. My dermatologist prescribed it for my acne. I have noticed that I perspire a lot now and my skin gets extremely oily. Is this a side effect or a sign that it is working effect...

I had a urinary problem after I bought and ate the kidney of a cow I was feeling a hot sensation when urinating, so purbac ds is one drug I was given three days ago, but I am still in pain when urinating four days later. ## I'm also having difficulties when urinating. It's painful and I started on this medication a week ago. ## I have just started taking purbac medication but was taking the wrong dose until I noticed. Now, the problem is that I'm left with 4 doses and my next refill date is on 28/10/2017, so I wonder if it's possible to skip my dose?

what is purbac,is it effective,any side effects

a friend of mine is using purbac ## Well first off I would like to state that ALL MEDICATIONS have side effects, even those sold over the counter. The amount of side effects experienced depends on the individual, how their body reacts to the medication and the dosage they are on, higher doses cause more side effects. This is a combination antibiotic used to treat various types of infections. Some of the most common side effects include: drowsiness, nausea, diarrhea and non-allergic rash. ## Hi, is purbac good for tonsilitis? ## Can i take 16 purbac per day for haemophilius influenzae
