I lost a piece of paper that said what I'm allergic to, I think it's an antibiotic that starts with an M. It it gives me a rash, my back starts to feel itchy, I had to take it for a blood infection. ## Hi igor, Antibiotics starting with "M" include: Meropenem, Mezlocillin, Meticillin, Moxifloxacin, Mafenide, and Minocycline. Do any of these names ring a bell? I'm sure there may be others out there, but this is what I could gather at the moment. I hope it helps! ...

Used to treat MRSA ## To treat MRSA, Vancomycin or other antibiotics in the same class are used. Other options may include: Flucloxacillin, Erythromycin and Ciprofloxacin. I am not, however, finding any that start with an R. but it is possible that some doctors may use Rocephin, the active ingredient in Ceftriaxone, though it is not listed as being used to treat MRSA. Do you have any other information, such as antibiotic class or anything on the particular one or ones you are seeking information on? ## After taking a round of Cipro and Flagel, I have an imbalance of flora that is causing me diahrrea and stomach pain.

Antibiotics with sprintec
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking antibiotics without realizing they can affect the effectiveness of my sprintec birth control. I haven't taken an active pill in 4 days and I have no signs of my period as of yet. Is there a possibility of pregnancy? ## Hello, Holly! How are you? What antibiotic were you taking? According to the NIH, not all of them reduce the efficacy of oral contraceptives. As to being late, the FDA does warn that most antibiotics can lengthen your menstrual cycle, so you may start later than normal. I've learned to just expect it any time I have to take one. However, if you are concerned about pregnancy, there is no harm in checking to be sure. ...

Was prescribed this Medicine 1week ago today. Just realized I was supposed to be taking three pills so 450 mg every 8 hours. I have only been taking 1 pill 150 mg every 8 hours what should I do? Should I start taking the 3 pills until they are gone? ## Hello, Cammie! How are you? It would be best to discuss it with your doctor, because if you don't take the full dose for the full duration of treatment, there is a risk of your developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. Thus, they may need to prescribe more. The FDA lists the typical antibiotic side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

However today makes the 12th day. Is this normal?Also, should i start a new pack of birth control being that i am on my inactive days. I am taking birth control Tricylen-Lo. I just want to stop the bleeding already. Please help me! ## Some antibiotics alter the efficacy of hormonal contraceptives and may alter your cycle.

How are you doing, now? ## I'm back to normal now. I started my active pill and the ve... ...

I have bactrim that expired 4 months ago is it safe to take ## Hello, Jean! How are you? Yes, all medications start to lose efficacy once past their expiration date and may not work as well as they did, when new. The issue this creates with antibiotics, such as Bactrim, is that it may no longer properly eradicate the bacteria, which could cause it to become drug resistant. Learn more Bactrim details here. It would really be best to see your doctor for a new prescription, if you suspect that you have an infection. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hello I have some antibiotics that has expired last month on the third is it safe to use them ...

I have a UTI and was taking urovec with tetracycline for 1 day and the discomfort of the uti has not subsided at all! I want to switch over and start taking amoxicillin asap which has worked really well in the past. Are there any complications I should be aware of by starting the amoxicillin 4 hours after taking the urovec with tetracycline? ## No, you can usually just make a smooth transition from one to the other. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. However, it does take more than one day for an antibiotic to work. Usually, you shouldn't see any worsening after taking it for a full 24 hours and you should see improvement after taking it for a full 3 days. Is there anything else I can help wi... ...

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... ...

take 1 pill 2 times a day antibiotics
3 Replies RSS
When taking prescribed antibiotics and the dosage is 1 pill twice a day, how many hours should before the next dosage? ## Hi Dman, Based on a 24 hour time scale, if you're required to take 1 pill twice daily, that "generally" means taking 1 pill every twelve hours. However I would recommend double checking this with your doctor first, in case he or she has special instructions for your individual case. From what I understand, the dosing schedule may also depend on the brand and whether or not it's an extended release tablet. I hope this helps! What's the name of the antibiotic you're taking? ## levetiraceta 1000MG ## I've just started taking Nitrofurantoin MCR 100MG CAPSULES. They're yellow in color. ...
