Amoxicillin dosage for strep throat

Common Questions and Answers about Amoxicillin dosage for strep throat


Avatar n tn I am confused about how much amoxicillin to give my 80 pound son <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>strep</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. One doctor prescribed 1 teaspoon every 12 hours of 400 MG/5 ML SUSP. Another doctor prescribed 2 teaspoons every 12 hours of 400 MG/5 ML SUSP. Is it 1 or 2 teaspoons?
Avatar n tn Augmentin 875 is basically amoxicillin and clavulanate ---- which is often used to treat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>strep</span>. Perhaps the dosage of amox. wasn't high enough <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> that particular child. I would take him to the doctor to have the throat looked at. I do think it would be odd for him to develop strep while on an antiobiotic used to treat it. Perhaps he has some resistance to the augmentin (which is pretty rare) or needs a higher dose of amoxicillin to hit the strep.
Avatar f tn I tested negative for gonorrhea/clamydia with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> swab but I tested positive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> group c <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>strep</span> (which is rare). The guy also got a uti within one week of the oral sex. I was given amoxicillin. The sore throat went away but one tonsil stayed very swollen and is still the same two months later! I am also having nerve pain on the same side and one swollen lymph node that always stays swollen. I have seen my dr numerous times and have tested negative for stds.
Avatar f tn I have never had chicken pox nor measles or anything more serious than a cold or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>strep</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. I have not changed any thing in my home as far as detergents or anything that can cause a reaction. I am a very picky eater, and my children have asthma and allergies so I always buy the same products and things of that nature.
Avatar n tn My 2 year old son was taking amoxicillin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>strep</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> about a month ago and the rash started on the back of his neck. I didn't think anything of it until he started having a fever of 103 to go with it. I just thought the rash was from a new laundry detergent that I started using a day before, but he wasn't getting any better so I took him to his doctor. And thank god I did because it turned out he was having a really bad reaction to the medicine.
Avatar n tn She treated me with a 10 day x2 a day 875mg dosage of Amoxicillin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> an ear infection and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>strep</span>. While on the antibiotics I started losing my voice. I took the full course of meds and during which my sore throat and ear ache went away and my voice returned. The day I stopped taking the medication I noticed my throat was starting to hurt again. Now here I am sitting March 9th 2010 and my sore throat is terrible. I have no fever, no appitite and no congestion.
Avatar m tn So i went back to the doctor and he prescirbed amoxicillin (a large dosage). The white spots have been gone ever since, but my tonsils remained large, but have never hurt (they in fact never hurt the entire time.) My doctor said there was nothing to worry about in regrads to my tonsils being big, so i havn't worried. I have continued to give and recieve oral sex to about 3 different men.

Avatar n tn Every article on the internet has to do with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>strep</span> B in prenatal women (when it is very dangerous <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the baby) and nothing about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>strep</span> B <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> regular women in their 40's like me :) Thanks, I'd love to hear from anyone who has ever been treated for this disease or any doctors out there.
Avatar n tn Do you still have the sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>? Do you have a high fever? Usually, with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>strep</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> you don't have a cough or other symptoms. So this sounds like a virus rather than a strep throat. So, when you went it to the doctor what were your symptoms to start with? If you only had pus in the throat and a sore throat with a fever you had strep throat. Then if they did a strep test and it was positive the antibiotics didn't help the sore throat? Then I would say you need another antibiotic.
Avatar n tn The pain then moved to the other side, and the nose bridge became tender to touch. The nose cartilage itself seems to be infected. Started amoxicillin two days ago (prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the earlier sinus infection). It is starting to feel a little better. I was really worried about staph or MRSP. Glad to know I am not the only one with this bizarre infection. I'm giving it two more days.
Avatar f tn Went to the docs office took a rapid strep test, turned out that I was positive for strep My fears escalate b/c I was worried that he had lied that he had given me something Was treated with azythromax (not to sure if spelt right) just to be cautious, tested NEG for gonno and chlym a few days later (Thank God) The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>strep</span> cleared up after 7 days of amoxicillin 500 mg dosage 3x a day for 7 days Day 4 of those antibiotics though, I began to experience itching all over my body with NO SIGNS OF A
Avatar m tn Last summer, I traveled by train to some other cities in the nearby vicinity, and upon returning in mid-July, I developed a bad sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. The sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> featured white spots in the back of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>, a side effect I'd never encountered before that alarmed me greatly. The doctor in the city hospital prescribed me Amoxicillin 250 mg four times a day and a daily treatment with a water vapor inhalation machine. That did the trick.
Avatar m tn Additional meds have been added to treat this, Pred forte and Prednisone taper (uveitis), Prilosec and various other pump blockers (gastritis), 20days amoxicillin (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>strep</span>) 10 weeks on amoxicillin (bronchitis), singulair and dulera for asthma. These are just symptoms added to my daily BD symptoms of joint, connective tissue inflammation, various GI symptoms, extreme fatigue, memory and coordination difficulties, night sweats, ulcers, headaches and low grade fevers.
Avatar n tn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> individuals at risk the dosage is 2 gms amoxicillin one hour prior to the procedure. 4) If I cut myself, does that also pose a risk of endocarditis? A: No.
Avatar f tn Then, due to the circumstances, I also ended up with acute asthmatic bronchitis. However, the first visit to a doctor prompted him to believe I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>strep</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. I was prescribed Amoxicillin, but I was unable to finish the dosage due to severe upset stomach seemingly caused by the drug. And, I was showing no signs of improvement. After talking to my doctor again, this time for acute dizziness and nausea in waves, I told him about the reaction to the drugs.
242516 tn?1368227505 If less than 3 of 4 of these signs are positive, then wait <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>strep</span> test or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> culture to show a bacterial infection before taking antibiotics. These are general guidelines, meant to be taken in the whole context of your health history by your doctor.

Avatar m tn amoxil does not give me any problems, and I just got off of it last week <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>strep</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. I'm assuming you've never taken amoxil? If I were you, I would call my cardiologist, or family doctor if you don't have a cardio, and tell them what the dentist is wanting to give you and let them know of your infection. Doctors and dentist do work together and should in these cases. I agree with bbxx in that gum infections can be very problematic for the heart....
Avatar n tn Before taking penicillin V, tell your doctor if you have ever had asthma, colitis (inflammatory bowel disease), diabetes, or kidney or liver disease. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> infections such as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>strep</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>, it is important to take penicillin V <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the entire amount of time your doctor has prescribed. Even if you feel better, you need to continue taking this medication. If you stop taking this medication before your treatment time is complete, your infection may recur.
Avatar f tn I'm still highly considering seeing a dermatologist to convince them into prescribing me doxycycline <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> acne, as it's the same dosage as i'm taking now just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a longer time to ensure that I kill it off. As for your headache, as I mentioned before you might want to try Excedrin Migraine.
Avatar f tn Just looking at your test results, your Free T4 and Total T3 results strongly suggest that you are not adequately converting the T4 to T3. It would be far better if you would get Free T3 tests rather than Total T3. Free T3 is the thyroid test that correlates best with hypo symptoms, while Free T4 and TSH did not correlate well at all. So it would be a good idea to always make sure they test for Free T3 along with the Free T4 each time you go in for tests.
Avatar m tn To follow up, I never had a sore throat so I don't think I had strep, I don't have my tonsils, and I just re-visited my doctor (1 of 3 that I have seen) only to hear nothing is wrong again, but I still have some symptoms. I am getting more fatigued as each day passes, especially the last two days. I still have a very slight swelling of lymph nodes under my jaw, but nowhere else. My penile itching and jock itch has completely gone away and I have no other symptoms down there.
Avatar f tn Went to a walk in clinic and was prescribed amoxicillin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>strep</span>. Not sure if the incredible pain was from the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>strep</span>, w/d's or a combination of both. I'm supposed to drop down again tomorrow but I'm thinking I may wait another week with being so sick. It will be the first week I haven't dropped my dose since I began my taper. I'll write again later... Feeling pretty bad right now still. I'm absolutely terrified of going thru what I went thru last night, again tonight.
Avatar n tn I noticed my orange tongue about a month ago after being sick with a sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> and cough <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> about 3-4 weeks. No more sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> but the orange tongue still remains. Same as everyone else, I can brush most of it off but it always returns. I live in the suburbs of Chicago. Pretty clean air.
Avatar dr m tn Chronic mouth breathing can not only affect your quality of life, but your life, period. As an ear, nose and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> specialist with years of experience helping people breathe better through their noses, I have seen hundreds of people have dramatically improved lives. One of the most important reasons to breathe through your nose is because of a gas called nitric oxide that's made by your nose and sinus mucous membranes.
Avatar f tn I'm on amoxicillin 1000mg 3 times a day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 3 months <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the actinomyces. I started the antibiotics 18 days now but hardly feel any difference (maybe a little?) I am not sure if this is an infection or some pre cancerous indicators. I also have the HPV virus. Do any of you? I am probably going to get another biopsy again to make sure I'm not missing anything. If we don't help each other seems like no one will.
Avatar n tn I asked the doctor to check her for Post strep arthritis he said he did once before but it was negative but he will test again. He tested <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>strep</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> which was negative. CBCs white count ok sedrate alittle elevated. Today they called and said her throat culture they took , that she has staph infection in her sinuses. She goes in for CT scan tommorrow, and antibiotics two weeks. I pray to God this was her problem all along and this was her fever problem and now we can work to fix it.
Avatar n tn wow, my son is having the exact same issue. He took the antibiotic omnicef <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>strep</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> about a week. He then broke out in severe hives, and about two days later stared with the joint pain. mostly hands and feet, but moves around, and gets better then worse. Dr is referring us to an allergist. Did you find any answers??????
1399363 tn?1462346210 Wish I could have antibiotics. Every one closes my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. Using an epipen isn't all that safe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> antibiotic allergy either, because use of the epipen can cause serious heart problems too. Needing an antibiotic is very scary for me.
Avatar m tn is strep that causes folliculitis the same <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>strep</span> that causes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>strep</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>?wow i am falling asleep from typing this i will try more later thanks as always .
