amoxil

Hello, I was told by a doctor I might have a chest infection so she put me on 500mg of amoxicillin three times a day. I'm also on diazepam for muscle spasms and anxiety. I cannot remember is she said it was ok go take them both together. If ok to take together this will put my mind at rest and stop me panicing.
Good Afternoon: I am taking 500 mg of amoxicillin 3xs a day. I just ate half of an orange--and was wondering how long should I wait before I take another dose--or is it best not to eat an orange or drink orange juice before or after each dose?
I have been checked out by Neuro, ENT and GP and NOTHING. I'm wondering if I have TMJ but I don't know. Here are my symptoms... Right ear pain Right ear fullness/ringing Pain behind right eye spot headaches on right side grinding teeth at night stiff neck - going into my shoulders I had an MRI/MRA back in Oct and all it showed was chronic sinusitis which I am being treated for by my ENT however he knows the pain is not coming from my ear. I am worried. Could this be an aneursym?
The dizziness resembled being carsick, with lightheadedness and occasional moments of nausea and feeling faint (but I never passed out). I had a CAT scan and blood work twice, and so far no diagnosis for the dizziness/fatigue. It got better for a few weeks but last week I began to have dizzy spells again, this time accompanied by maxillary sinus pressure. I had just switched allergy medications, from Nasonex to generic Flonase, right at the time my symptoms returned.
We spent our childhood playing in fields and woods with no thought of anything except avoiding yellow jacket nest and staying on our horses backs :) I was bitten by a lot of dog ticks, and took them off the dogs, gleefully dumping the flailing things into a can of gas. Had a few spells of unknown aches and pains and fatigue but it was passed off as growing pains or Oh you are too tired, go sleep. And sleep i did, for days at a time more than once.
My labia was so sore and swollen and itchy and I developed a small red blotch that was itchy right on my inner thigh. I also noticed my discharge was a little bit green, although VERY light green, and there was an unpleasant odor. Stupidly, I pretty much chalked it up to more yeast infection problems, until I decided to find a natural supplement (grapefruit seed extract) to help with the yeast.
i have been suffering from debilatating allergies/sinus probs, fatigue, and dizziness for about a year now. i do have allergies to mold, dust, milk products, and corn products. my allergy doc says my symptoms are all from allergies, but i have been trying everything 2 avoid the allergens, been getting allergy shots, tried numerous allergy medications, with no help from anything! does anyone else experience this type of thing? i seriously feel like i am getting so depressed.
I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
Hi kevdood83. I took metronidazole and amoxicillin for a nasal infection in mid 2011 and started to develop a white coated tongue. I did some research and came across Grapefruit seed extract. GSE is an anti-virus/bacteria/fungi agent. Put a couple drops in some water or juice and gargle. Start with only a couple drops and work your way up to 4 drops. If you use too many drops it will burn your mouth - you don't want that.
After that, wait an hour and take 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil, shake-mix it with 1/2 cup grapefruit juice and drink it with a straw. Down it fast and lay down, face upward, in your bed as fast as possible after drinking it. You will soon begin to have bowel movements so go to the bathroom whenever you need to go. You will begin to expel stones out of your liver and gallbladder. You will notice them since they will be be green and many will float.
It works incredibly well with bacterial and viral infections, and some but not all fungal infections. The Flip-Turn is the original, and still the best Sinus Flush. WARNING! DISCLAIMER! The technique in this manual involves bending over in a hot shower. Obviously, if you bend over in a shower, there is a slight possibility that you can get dizzy and fall down. You could possibly hit your head, get knocked out, or break something.
After a week in our local hospital my scrotum had turned blue and black and was the size of a very large grapefruit, the left side had split open. I was taken to the city hospital and the urologist filling in for the one that was on vacation got me in the OR at 11:30pm the day before my birthday. When I woke up I was in severe pain. Doctor and interns came in and explained that the left testicle and tissues and muscles around it had been removed due to the infection.
My cough came back and I went back to the Doctor and was prescribed Mary's Mouthwash and Amoxicillin. $300 later (no benefits) I still have a terible cough, phlegm and a bright Orange Tongue just in time for halloween!!! Tomorrow I am headed to the Veterans Affairs clinic and am gonna try and figure this all out for $6 instead of $300 well see what happens.
thing, and I could use some advice. I have always had problems with amoxicillin and yeast infections. And, I can't tolerate doxy, so the doctor put me on amoxycillin (900mg 2x/day) and I'm supposed to add probenecid (a drug that increases orally taken amox levels in the blood to nearly intravenous levels) starting next week. Here's the deal--the yeast infection started three days ago--ugh.
I'm fairly holistic in approach to health, so idea of IV antibiotics scares me (have friend whose kidney was destroyed that way). Am presently using Chinese herbs for inflammation and about to try using Grapefruit Seed extract in Netti pot to induce drainage.....just trying to keep it under control pending diagnosis as I fear serious consequences if undiagnosed too long. Has anyone else had Sphenoid issues while using CPAP?
I was given cortisone to use vaginally twice a week and premarin. The premarin caused problems and so he stopped it. Last week he told me that I would take the cortisone the rest of my life and to come back to see him in a year. I am confused with this and am searching the internet for information. That is when I found your link. I would also like any information on this subject.
I every now and then get really bad itching, but not as much. The combo is acidophillus, garlic, grapefruit seed extract, Vitamin C, and echinacea. I don't know the exact mg, but just look it up. Something that recently happend to me was an abnormal result on a pap smear. Does anyone know if this can be from GSB? This is soemthing new, so I haven't had a chance to ask my gyno yet. Hope this helps.

My stomach feels very tight and bloated and cramping, and have this unexplainable feeling in abdomen area. These symptoms can be confusing because of the medication.... By the way, Congrats to to all with good news and lots of baby dust to the rest!
I can't get in to see the doctor so I have been taking anti-oxidants, colloidal silver, and I also made a spray with filtered water and grapefruit seed extract (GSE) and have been applying it to the sore areas every few hours. The area on my face is already getting better (in about 12 hours) but the area on my hip is still hurting pretty bad. I also try to take extra good care of myself when this happens: rest, drink plenty of fluids, etc.
I know that one of the meds that im on now. you cant drink grapefruit juice with, and thats either the Vistaril or the flexeril, I cant remember which one. But I dont drink that nasty stuff any how..
I just finished the antibiotics and I still feel the same as I did when I first went to him in July. He had me on amoxicillin plus Astelin. I have tried Nasacort, Zyrtec, Claritin, Alavert, etc.... no relief. I am a computer programmer and I can't function like this anymore. Any help would be very appreciated. Thanks.
Anyway I'm excited about next week and then end of jan beg of feb I should be getting an u/s...soo excited and nervous for this. ashleigh- wow girl I still think your pregnant....it may just not be showing up yet. What brand did you use. Go buy a dollar store one. I swear by them all I've used are the dollar store and internet cheapies and I get great results with them..maybe u just implanted late and that is why the hormones are so low. I peed on a stick again yesterday...
All a normal woman needs to do is to wash with mild soap when showering, and keep the area clean and dry--wear cotton panties, and try not to wear pantyhose. Excessive use of certain medicated wipes may also disturb your normal flora and worsen the problem. Sometimes wearing a panty liner can trap wetness against your skin and contribute to odor.
A throat specialist went down with a scope and said everything was normal. My doctor diagnosed allergy or sinus problems, and possible asthma, and put me on antihistamines and an asthma inhaler. None of it worked. Then she put me on Claritin D and it seemed to work for at least a year. Then it came back again and she put me on a different brand of Claritin D-like medication. Nothin'. Then I was diagnosed with Acid Reflux. They put me on Prevacid which worked again, for about a year.
here i go....so for the last 6 months i have had itchy eyelids...my eye doctor told me it was due to mild allergies and prescribed eye drops which didnt help in the least so i turned to over the counter allergy medicine which hasn't helped either (so i dont think it's allergies) and in the last 3 weeks not only are my eyelids itchy but when i wake up in the morning my upper eye lids are bright red and swelled up so bad that its embarassing!!!!
It is time to try an alternative. Start doing the following breathing exercise daily and it will help all your ear problem. - Deep Breath-in through left nostril keeping right nostril closed then - Breath-out through right nostril keeping left nostril closed then -Deep Breath-in through right nostril keeping left nostril closed then - Breath-out through left nostril keeping right nostril closed and repeat this cycle for 15 minutes twice a day.
Thanks to Duchess47, Wepst and JDanMan for your comments and suggestions. I will seriously look into all of your suggestions and hope that it's just some seasonal allergy thing. Thanks again.
