Common Questions and Answers about Amoxicillin and sudafed

amoxil

your prenatals and folic acid should be fine with the ABX/sudafed.
Well, the doctor prescribed 1 pill(amoxicillin) each day. The sudafed has only phenylephrine in it,and it is only for nasal decongestant.. It has no asprin or acetaminophen in it. The excedrin tension has caffeine and free from asprin but has acteaminophen.
I took it 500mg 2 x per day when preggo with twins, I checked with OB first and it was fine.
Hey ladies, I am just worried bc i have had 2 prev mc, and now I am 10 wks and had the worst sinus infection, so they gave me amoxcillin, and sudafed. Now they say i have a UTI, and gave me Bactrim. I am just concerned over this cocktail of drugs in the first trimester. Anyone gone through this?
46 pm. Im have been suffering with this headache all day. I have a major headache right now. Can I take excedrin tension?
I thought I was coming down with a simple cold on Thursday and of course b/c I'm pregnant I'm have to be careful of what I take. I went out and bought Sudafed & Robitussin and thought I was getting better, but by Monday I caved and went to the doctor. I have bronchitis...enlarged tonsils...pressure in the ears...YUCKY! The doctor gave me amoxicillin and I'm feeling a little better, but still have no voice! Baby CJ is doing well. I go for my glucose test within the next 2-3 weeks.
Assuming it was a sinus infection, they prescribed amoxicillin, and that took care of the symptoms in under a week. About two weeks after being off of the amoxicillin, the symptoms began to return. I went back to the doctor and the prescribed some different antibiotic, which again, worked fine. Yet again, a few weeks after being done with that antibiotic, the symptoms returned. I opted to not use antibiotics to see if it would go away on its own, and it did after nearly a month.
I went in the shower and felt faint, called for my Mum and after a few seconds I did actually faint and lose consciousness. For the next few weeks I was feeling really tired all the time, nauseated and getting bouts of dizziness so I basically spent weeks in bed. Due to being so inactive and hardly eating I ended up in hospital for 5 days with painful impacted constipation.
Well, we bought the Sudafed PE nighttime cold and the Sudafed PE cold and cough. I am so worried it will hurt the baby. I keep feeling my stomach to see if he is still breakdancing in there...yep he is. But I feel like I am going crazy everytime I take a sudafed I think is it harming him? am I crazy?
Should I try going to another doctor and getting the floxin, just take the sudafed, or just wait it out in pain? It's already been 5 days of sharp pain, and I'm not really sure what to do/what is wrong? Thank you.
I am a very active (run 3-5 times per week and lift weights) 32 year old mother of two who has been battling somewhat severe headaches for 17 months. Prior to having my second child, I would get the occassional headache that most everyone gets. I have also had trouble "clearing" my ears for the past 13 months. They always feel full. My PCM had just tried to keep piling on the drugs to "cure" things.
I don't whether I should Just keep doing the Nasonex and nothing else and wait n see? or if I should take some Sudafed and see what that does. Im not usually a person that takes medicines a lot I usually just like to work out and exercise a lot and let my body take care of it. But I never had tinnitus for 2 months before haha...but I'm just wondering what would be the better alternative do you think?
You can take the 30 mg dosage of sudafed if it get's worse. Use it sparingly and drink extra fluids. I wouldn't take it more than 6 hours apart if needed. It is one of the safer ones to use, but with any there is a slight decrease in supply. Pump full of the vit c like you're doing. Vicks salve, as grose as it smells, helps keep your nose open.
So I took amoxicillin, sudafed and mucinex. A week later they found no improvement, so I continued taking mucinex and started on flonase. The feeling never really went away, though, so in early May I went to an ENT specialist and he said I had an ear blockage. So then I started on a twice daily routine of saline wash and nasonex. I just re-visited the ENT doc last week (mid-June) and he found improvement in my ears, but not 100% yet (he said maybe one more month).
It started after I was diagnosed with a sinus infection 2 months ago and they gave me amoxicillin to clear it. It had only gotten worse so I went to the e.r. for a cat scan. They told me my sinuses look fine and now I have to go back for an mri! I am so scared that it is something entirely different now. I never had these problems before my sinus infection and I am thinking maybe they cannot see the fluid in my inner ear?
O ok
I'm 16, and I recently got put on amoxicillin for a really bad eat infection. When I went to the doctor, he said he saw no problems other than in my left sinuses which he assumed was the problem for my ear ache/runny nose/sore throat, etc. I've been taking nasonex, sudafed, and just today stopped taking my amoxicillin pills.
I had dizziness and jitteriness spells to go along with this. I first was told to take Sudafed, and then told to take Mucinex-D. After having bad experiences with those, my doctor gave me Allegra-D. Well, after figuring out that the "-D" in these medicines were making me crazy because of the Pseudoephidrine, I quickly got off of them. Every time I took them, I became very "jittery" and felt "hyper" but without the energy.
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.
I finally called Ob and they said stay away from mucinex and take plain robitussin (which didn't make much sense to me..its the same active ingredientc(guaf).. But I followed orders) and sudafed(also plain - ewithout psuedo). Another week went by, only got worse. Finally got a z pack and cough syrup prescribed. Another week and I was better. 3 weeks sick altogether. Used humidifier at night and Vicks too. Good luck. Its miserable!
I have a sinus infection and my doc prescribed amoxicillin and said I could take one of four things: claritin, mucinex, sudafed (only the plain kind -- little red pill), and zyrtek. I was happy when she said mucinex because that is what I usually take when I wasn't preggo and it worked really well for me.
I was back to the doctor and he prescribed a greater dose of amoxicillin and advised me to finish it, which I did this time. Great, no symptoms for the last week. A couple of days ago however, the symptoms started again, and yet again, only at night. I went to bed with the annoying banging and awoke to it, only for it to go away during the day.
sent me for a CT of sinus and it was clear. Sent me to an ENT - gave me nasal steroid and antihistamines. No help. Been doing saline irrigation, vitamins. Am now on Prednisone (steroid pills) for 6 days. After 1 and 1/2 days feel better and pressure is leaving but scared because I know after this 6 days I'll be back to where I was and I'm extremely run down and need to rebuild to fight whatever this is. Scheduled for allergy testing the end of the month.
My doctor prescribed A zithromycin for 5 days and I'm only 9 wks got rid of the cold,, coughing and sinuses.
Dristan Nasal Spray, Neosynephren, Vicks Nasal Spray, Sudafed, etc. and others containing ephedrine or pnenypropanolamine. Over the counter appetite suppressants which contain propanolamine. Most common nasal decongestants can cause a positive reading for Amphetamines. As the cross reactive list suggests at the back of this booklet, amphetamine false positives are the most common. Recent articles in the Journal of Clinical Chemistry ,Vol. 38 No.12 1992 and Vol. 39 No.
I caught a cold a little over a week ago, and on the second day my left ear started to hurt. I used Sudafed, a cool mist humidifier, drank lots of water and rested, hoping it would resolve on its own. It gradually got worse until on the evening of the fourth day the bone behind and directly above my left ear also hurt very bad. My forehead above my left eye also hurt. 800mg of ibuprofen was no longer controlling the pain.
He said I did have some fluid buildup in one ear and that I could have a sinus infection and he gave me Amoxicillin, Sudafed and Tylenol. I've been taking everything. Shouldn't it have kicked in by now? How long should I give this? I'm just tired of feeling this way. I've gotten almost nothing accomplished this week and I hate that. Is there anything else I can do? I just want to feel good again. Thanks.
I was told by my doctor that Sudafed was safe to take, so I took it and had a very healthy pregnancy and baby, but some people will say absolutely no to take that. If there is a sore throat, boil some water, squeeze a lemon into the cup and add some honey, that helped with sore throats during pregnancy. Also for sore throat, gargle with warm salt water (you might gag, cause it's disgusting) but the salt kills infection. So those are two ways that you can get relief without medication.
and I figured it was a sinus infection caused by a communication between my sinus and my mouth (there was some bone attached to the root when it was pulled out). He refilled my amoxicillin and motrin scripts, told me to get a saline nasal spray and start taking sudafed to clear out the congestion. It worked wonders, so much so, that by the time I saw him for another follow up appointment (last Friday) everything seemed to be going well.
If I were you I would use sudafed or mucinex, and if chloraseptic spray would offer relief for the sore throat, it couldn't hurt. If things don't get better I always see a ENT doctor who usually puts me on augmentin or amoxicillin, at worst a medrol pack.
