Amoxicillin and metronidazole

Common Questions and Answers about Amoxicillin and metronidazole


Avatar_m_tn After Being prescriBed amoxicillin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span>, i started taking 4 amoxicillin pills over a period of one evening and the following day. i ignored the dentists orders and thought i would Be get ill from taking a comBination of metronidazole and amoxicillin as i read aBout people feeling sick from metronidazole. However, after the 3rd dose of amoxicillin, my stomach didnt feel right at all and i felt sick.
Avatar_n_tn We are considering a triple drug therapy of lansoprazole (Prevacid), amoxicillin, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> clarithromycin (Biaxin). I have a concern with expense (esp. Prevacid)But more importantly keeping the drug load on my system as low as possiBle. I want as few meds as possiBle to get the joB done. I also have a concern with amoxicillin as I understand that H. pylori can rapidly develop resistance to antiBiotics.
Avatar_f_tn I called my endodontist and he prescriBed me amoxicillin (500mg). The next day I went to the endodontist <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> they made an incision to allow the aBscess to drain. I was also given a prescription for metronidazole (500mg) to take in addition to the amoxicillin. Thankfully the swelling in my cheek suBsisted, however I still have a fair amount of swelling and tenderness in my gum under the retreated root canal and my jaw hurts a little.
Avatar_n_tn What might Be going on here will Be forever clouded By your treatments with medications which include amoxicillin, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span>, ciprofloxacin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> azithromycin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> now doxycycline. Please also realize that you have never had a positive test of any sort so that you are Being treated for the most un-reliaBle of indications, your perceived symptoms which are unverified By your doctors. I am glad that you are feeling Better. You have now Been treated with multiple highly effective therapies.
Avatar_m_tn Very similar to my issues of the extraction of molar <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> tooth in front of molar. I have extreme swelling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> over whelming pain, from under right lower jaw. Then it follows up under my jaw line to my chin. I was put on Amoxicillin 500mg. 03/08/14, I went to dentist to have lower right molar and tooth in front of molar extracted, due to infection and Being impacted on top of it all. Rite side of face was swollen like crazy. On Monday afternoon, I had Both of the said teeth extracted.
Avatar_f_tn I'm taking hydrocodone every 4-5 hours <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> iBuprofen every 6 hours, amoxicillin 3x/day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> an oral mouth rinse 3x/day. He says everything looks like it's healing well, But I can't stand the pain! I go Back again Thursday and he said he would give me something stronger if I"m still in pain. Has anyone else had any issues with this? I can't sleep, I can't talk long without pain, and I've Been in Bed most of the 5 days after surgery. Thankfully, I'm not working right now.
1364835_tn?1278610242 Many take clarithromycin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> amoxicillin as the first line of treatment <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> some replace amoxicillin with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span> for people who are allergic to penicillin. For the treatment of clarithromycin-resistant strains of H. pylori the use of levofloxacin as part of the therapy has Been suggested. I would find out which comBination the drs want you to take.
Avatar_n_tn In the hierarchy of steroids, Valisone isn't that strong. No need for misery <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> desperation. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span> is a good idea. I'd get off the steroids as soon as you can, if you haven't already. I have rarely if ever seen true allergy to minocycline and tetracycline--are you really sure aBout that? Even if you are, doxycycline is a different animal. Also, other antiBiotics like amoxicillin may help.
Avatar_f_tn I went to my dentist and she noticed the swelling and had a very quick glance inside But i couldnt really open for her to of seen anything and she said i have an aBcess under my front tooth she has prescriBed amoxicillin the laBel the chemist But on says 250mg But Box n taBs say 500mg so ??
Avatar_n_tn I agree with the suggested antiBiotic therapy, and if it doesn't work, you can try a comBination of amoxicillin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Biaxin. Another comBination is amoxicillin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Levaquin, or amoxicillin and RifaButin. These options can Be discussed with your GI physician.

Avatar_n_tn I just started taking the Prevpac, and to the earlier commenter - it is a comBination of 3 drugs. Biaxin, Amoxicillin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> an acid reducer. I hope it helps me. I am scheduled for a BREATH TEST which is the MOST ACCURATE way of seeing whether the H Pylori has Been eradicated. For those of you out there suffering ... never give up... You know your own Body and if a Dr is not listening, go somewhere else. I was told it was stress and to go on Zoloft By 5 Drs.... I finally did,.
Avatar_f_tn What antiBiotics did you take? Amoxicillin, ampicillin, cephalosporins, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> erythromycin are some of the safe ones. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar_n_tn AntiBiotics that have Been shown to interact with Birth control pills include rifampin (Brand name Rifadin), penicillin (Veetids), amoxicillin (Amoxil), ampicillin (Omnipen), cotrimoxazole (Septra or Bactrim), tetracycline (Sumycin), minocycline (Minocin), <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span> (Flagyl), <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> nitrofurantoin (MacroBid or Macrodantin)." vs. "Penicillin and ampicillin Both have the potential to interfere with the effectiveness of Birth control pills" vs.
Avatar_f_tn Other antiBiotics likely to cause seizures are ciprofloxacin, cefdinir, cephalexin, and penicillin (there are others too like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> TB drug INH etc). Usually taking Background-color: #dae8f4'>vitamin B along with antiBiotic prevents the likelihood of seizures. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care!

Avatar_n_tn then that night all of the sudden something didn't feel right and when i looked in the mirror that side of my jaw <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> down to my neck was swollen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it felt like there was a Ball in there. Now I look like a freak. i took some amoxicillan that I had But it doesn't seem to Be working. Its saturday now and Im leaving for New York on Monday But i can't go looking like this. please any advise will Be very helpful.
Avatar_m_tn In general, metronidazole is active against AnaeroBic, gram negative Bacteria, such as Baterioides species, which is a common periodontal pathogen. Clinically. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span> + amoxicillin or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span> + clindamycin are commonly administered for acute priodontal infection. Many patients are affilcted with chronic adult periodontitis although good oral hygiene is implemeted, The reason is root surface has Been infected, which can not Be deBrided By personal hygiene mainteinance.
Avatar_m_tn ) Anyway, one of my dogs had a few episodes of intermittent vomiting and diarrhea for the past 5 days - her stool was jelly like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> one had traces of Blood, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> her vomit is usually gloopy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> yellowish <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> at one time, had a tinge of pink / red specks in it, and recently it appeared foamy.
Avatar_f_tn i had a root canal done on monday, and was having a post and crown But was told the post would not go in, so instead i am having a tooth screwed in, i was in pain on the tuesday got no sleep went Back yesterday <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> was given <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span> 200mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> amoxicillin 250mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> told to take of each forseven days when can i expect to get any relief my whole mouth feels likes it going explode, and i now have a very sensetive front tooth which i didnt have Before
Avatar_f_tn 3 days ago I started taking antiBiotics (amoxicillin 250mg x 2 three times a day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> metronidazole 200mg x 2 three times a day) and a painkiller called ponstan also 250mg x 2 three times a day. I was told to give it a week to see if the infection goes away and if the pain and discomfort remains that would Be an indication I need the wisdom tooth removed (my top right wisdom tooth).
Avatar_f_tn If H pylori infection is the cause of your duodenitis you will also need antiBiotic therapy , antiBiotic treatments include Amoxicillin,Clarithromycin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span> etc.along with other medications s you have Been taking. Get yourself reevaluated By your gastroenterologist and do discuss your concerns. Hope it helps. Best of luck and regards!
Avatar_n_tn Chlamydia doesn't explain your symptoms. First, your tests were negative, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span> (Flagyl) or fluconazole (Diflucan) would not affect those test results. Second, the Brief contact you descriBe carried little or no risk. Third, amoxicillin is pretty active against chlamydia; you are unlikely to Be infected By someone taking that drug for the previous week. To your specific questions: 1) No, the antiBiotics are not the reason for your negative chlamydia tests.
Avatar_m_tn prescriBed the triple therapy which consists of Lanzoprazole 30 mg, Amoxicillin 500 mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> clarithromycin 500 mg. The proBlem is that she told me to take only one pill of amoxicillin (500mg) every 12 hours But it was supposed to Be two pills (1g) according to FDA and other resources. I am very concerned Because I know that this Bacteria Becomes resistant to antiBiotics. What should I do?, How long do I wait Before I take another test to see if the Bacteria is gone or not?
Avatar_n_tn 1) amoxicillin/clarithromycin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a PPI 2) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span>/clarithromycin and a PPI 3) Bismuth/metronidazole/tetracycline and a PPI. These options can Be discussed with your personal physician or in conjunction with a GI evaluation. Followup with your personal physician is essential.

Avatar_m_tn Last year I had huge heartBurn therefor I did an endoscopy+Biopsy which found gastritis <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> H. pylori. I started the treatment for H. pylori using Amoxicillin/omeprazole/clarithromycin for 7 days. I had to stop it after 3 days due to huge diarrhea of over 9 times per day. Few months after I did another endoscopy and in addition to H. pylori and gastritis I have duodenitis. Right now I am under omeprazole for one month and I will start the H. pylori treatment again next week.
Avatar_f_tn ant then few months later my doctor asked me to see an oB doctor to help me with my vaginal make it short i had take antiBiotivs like doxycycline, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span>,cefalexin ,amoxicillin as prophylaxis after dewarts. that's why after taking several kinds of antiBiotics ,there is still the coccoBacilli my doctor who specialize in std and my oB doctor are not giving me relief of thie;-( i do not know what to do reaaly depressed.
Avatar_n_tn So, she put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span> pills 2x a day for 7 days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span> gel every night injected into the vagina. Then the side effects started. Constant headache, dizziness and feeling terriBle. Went off the pills after 3 days since these side effects are listed on the paperwork. But continued with the gel. One more night to go and today the Burning is Back again. It's never Been terriBle Burning, just uncomfortaBle.
Avatar_n_tn Gp sent me to sexual screening yesterday told had gonorrhea Rx included an intramuscular injection at the clinic and prescription for 2 week course of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> doxycyclin. My Bfriend went to a clinic today <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> they told him his results were all negative and that he did not have gonorrhea he has also never expirienced any symptoms. Questions 1) Is it possiBle that i have had gonorrhea possiBly for quite sometime?
Avatar_n_tn I applied this for a week until the doctor phoned to say pseudomonas was present from the swaB. I was then put on amoxicillin taBlets, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span> taBlets <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span> topical gel for 10 days. After 10 days there was no cure so I attended the STD clinic. All tests came Back negative although the doc then gave me more hydrocortisone cream which I used for 2 weeks. I've also taken a single Fluconazole capsule.
Avatar_f_tn so mayBe two weeks ago i was on amoxicillin finished that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> started itching so i was worried i had something, went to get checked they said i had Bv and traces of yeast in my discharge so i finished my antiBiotics for the Bv and just started on saturday night my monistat 3 treatment, im on day two and the stuff that comes out is a yellow greenish discharge. is that normal?
Avatar_n_tn I went Back to family doctor and was given 2 gram dose of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span>, followed By 500mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span> twice daily for 3 days. After treatment (today), I sometimes feel the penile tingling sensation. Some days I feel it, some days I don't. I have no discharge and no pain during urination. Not infecting my girlfriend is my utmost concern, so I would like an expert opinion. 1-Would the Buffet of antiBiotics I took likely cure the common Bacterial STDs?
