1 Reply RSS Share
I have copd and have developed bronchitis over the last week or so. I am allergic to penicillin. My doctor believes the bronchitis is bacterial and has prescribed a medication that the prescription insert says "May cause serious lung problems. Tell your doctor if you develop a cough, shortness of breath, or chest pain" all of which I have with copd and bronchitis. He also prescribed 5 days of prednisone and a pro air inhaler. What would be the best antibiotic given this information. (The medication is sulfameth/trimethoprim 800160mg TB.) ## There are risks associated with all medications and that warning is usually included with most antibiotics, due to the possibility of hypersensitivity reactions, thus, I really don't know what I could suggest that might be safer for you. ... ...

I have bronchitis. I was given amoxicillin a week ago to take for dental work and I still have 16 left. Can i take this? ## Hello, Laverne! How are you? Why didn't you finish the antibiotic prescription for the dental work? Not doing so creates the risk of your developing antibiotic resistance as explained in various NIH research articles. As to taking it for the bronchitis, it depends on how severe it is and whether or not it is bacterial in origin. It would be best to see your doctor to make sure an appropriate medication is prescribed, if one is necessary.

Never had a problem with antibiotics. This one gave me cdif. I am still trying to get rid of cdif after six weeks and two more rounds of flagyl. ## I am not sure what cdif is. My daughters grandmother had taken omnicf - for a sinus infection... after taking this she has lost her sense of smell. It has been 10-months and still nothing. ## I had a terrible reaction to Ciprofloxin 15 yrs ago, and still carry the reminders in huge, red spots all over my legs. It caused a bone-deep itch that could not be reached, which lasted weeks. And after that, I was also allergic to sulfas. Cipro is a dangerous drug and should only be used as last-resort! It is a synthetically-produced one, and very strong. Oh, it cured my bronchitis, all right, but it left me permanent reminders of that illness! Good r... ...

Looking for the name of an antibiotic

My father has a chest infection of an undiagnosed sort. The doctor prescribed a 5-day antibiotic (large white, long tablet) which I cannot recall the name of and need to -- in order to describe to the 'new' doc what my dad has taken for the problem (which has yet to cease). I do know that when I read the pamphlet, "anthrax" was listed, along with sinusitis, bronchitis, etc. for reasons the antibiotic is given. Any chance you can give me an idea of what the antibiotic might be? I'm quite sure it began with the letter "L"... Lexo... or something like that. ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? Was it possibly Levofloxacin? That's one that meets all the criteria that you've described. Can you please post back and let me know? Thanks! ...
