Common Questions and Answers about Augmentin kidney

augmentin

I have recently been prescribed Augmentin 1g for a severe UTI (caused by a staph bacteria). I ovulated 4 days ago and am a little worried about taking the antibiotics given I have read some conflicting things about this antibiotic on the internet. The dose is 2 per day for 3 days.
I'm on augmentin for a kidney infection. Last night I got a dry cough that I thought might be acid reflux, so I tried famotidine (generic OTC Pepcid AC) for the first time. Can these two interact and cause problems? Within 20 minutes of taking famotidine I felt dizzy, nauseous, and my temperature went up a full degree to 99.7. My cough went away, though. I felt sick and nauseous for an hour or so, when it went away and hasn't returned.
Augmentin is very similar to Clavamox. Augmentin can occasionally cause stomach upsets (vomiting and diarrhea). The dose of Augmentin is all right for your dog. All of the supplements you mention are good except the vinegar. It would really be best to have a urinalysis performed though and treat under veterinary supervision.
The next symtom is blood in the urine (a slight light orangy color) than possible kidney damage. he was on Augmentin 825, There IS a non-penicillin equivalent, Ask you doctor.
Finally after 11 days I went and had a culture done of my throat and it came back positive for strep !!! Augmentin 875/125 now for 10 days...Throat is back to normal after 3 days on Augmentin but.....Started with some urinating urgency one day then urinating like crazy the following day so I went to local walkin and they did the "dip" urine test and said everything was normal except "trace" of blood in urine...Hmmm...Now I am waitng for further lab results..
2 yrs ago got an acute kidney infection ( high fever, blood in pee, the works) which was treated with augmentin. since then, I keep getting less acute infections and they come back every 3 months. Low fever, very tired, abdominal swelling (a lot), back pain, urine strips show white blood cells and protein and occasionally nitrates. I had a hysterectomy 4 weeks ago (large broad lig fibroid) and I hoped that might make a difference.
The GP diagnosed me with a Kidney Infection, describing that I had pus like material within my left Kidney, no further tests were ordered. I went back after the antibiotics were completed (10 days, twice per day) and the dipstick test showed no concerns with the urine. In early January 2009 I was aware of some discomfort around the left kidney with more frequent urinating which I monitored closely.
they don't hurt to touch but it feels like there's pressure in the back of my throat and up to my ear. my dr gave me a ten day course of augmentin, a few weeks ago, but I actually feel worse. over the past week or so, I've had this aching in my back (flanks). it intermittently spreads up to my shoulder blades and is worse on the left side. in the past few days, it feels like I can literally feel my kidneys. they just really ache. my appetite is barely there.
10. under GA. A kidney-bladder stent had been introduced. I was on ciprofloxacin 500 mg after the surgery and I experienced fever after few days.urine FR revealed pus cells in urine and few RBCs. I was changed to Augmentin 625 Mg bd (Amoxycillin 500 Mg and Clauvelenic acid 125 Mg.) and 2 days after, did a urine FR and Antibiotic sensitivity test. It revealed, pus cells had gone down and the urine culture full of E-coli, and the organism was resistant to Augmentin.
In May of 2008, I had to take 3 weeks of Augmentin 875 mg 2x/day for a kidney infection. The day after finishing the medication, I started to have frequent, loose bowel movements. I have been tested for C Diff, parasites, celiac (blood test) and had a full colonoscopy. Nothing has shown in any of the tests and I continue to have frequent loose stools and watery diarrhea. I have no fever, and no apparent blood or mucus. Is it possible to have colitis and it not show on a colonoscopy?
on 2nd round of po abx for this enteroccus uti that is negative on u/a but positive on urine cultures running low fevers 999.5-100.
Went to the urologist on Wednesday. Was told that I have 4-5 kidney stones in each kidney, but they're "soft" kidney stones. I'm assuming this means struvite stones, which could be the cause of my recurrent UTIs.
Kidney function tests should be done at regular intervals to rule out kidney involvement (if kidney gets involved, yes it can become serious). Usually there is accompanying stomach and joint pain. Fever with rash can also be due to viral fevers, dengue, typhoid, malaria, and H1N1 infection. It can be due to measles, chicken pox, or due to group A streptococcal infection. Hence all these should be ruled out. Please discuss with your child's treating doctor. Take care!
If the UTI goes untreated, it may lead to a kidney infection. Kidney infections may cause early labor and low birth weight. A urinalysis and a urine culture can detect a UTI and if you have taken the antibiotics for UTI, get a repeat urine examination done. Most antibiotics given are those which are safe in pregnancy. However get regular ultrasounds done in pregnancy to rule out any congenital malformation. Antibiotics which are usually given in pregnant women for e.
She ran a fever of over 104 degrees. She has been on Omnicef, Augmentin, and now Macrodantin. I have taken her for a kidney scan and VCUG. Both were normal. Could peeing in the pullup be causing her UTI's? She has been in them for years with no problem except now. She does't take baths, just showers. I wash her with gentle soap. I also wipe her after she uses the bathroom. Now she has to go see a pediatric urologist on Tuesday.
Now I am having severe localized pain in my upper back region kind of around where my kidney is. Should I be concerned. I also have fever of 102.3 and severe congestion.
You should consult your doctor about getting other investigations done including a kidney and liver function test. Are you having any other symptoms like yellow skin or yellow urine, loss of appetite, nausea, etc? If the symptoms are still persistent, consult a gastroenterologist and get a proper clinical evaluation done. Let us know if you have any doubts and keep us posted on how you are doing. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Anyway I recently got diagnosed with cellulitus due to a scratch by my dog. I am on Augmentin the highest dose 875-125mg twice daily, my question is this can Augmentin cause nerve damage? Other then the cellulitus I have been having health issues but doctors think its anxiety/panic attacks. Anyway I haven't slept really for 8 days, I was having panic attacks in my sleep.
Still in severe pain a few days later I found a urologist who said he suspected an infection and gave me Augmentin for 10 days. The Augmentin seemed to get rid of the back pain, however halfway through the treatment the pain came back. I also started to get some bladder symptoms back again while on the Augmentin including an episode of what felt like urethral spasms one evening. This was terribly painful.
My internist called me and asked if I had any pain or burning. I do not. She said I prob have UTI and started me on Augmentin for 10 days. I received the results at home from lab and am concerned about results. WBC Esterace 3+, WBC>30,RBC 11-30, Epithelial Cells {NON RENAL] >10 ,Bacteria few. The culture came up 50000-100000 Group B strep. My dr acted like this is no big deal when I called her to discuss results. Should I just calm down?
Urinary stones can cause abrasion and irritation resulting in hematuria. Other possible cause is a kidney condition called glomerulonephritis. I would suggest that you consult your Doctor so further investigation can be done. You Doctor may request for some blood tests, urinalysis, urine culture, and an ultrasound or CT scan. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
11 weeks ago I was diagnosed with a kidney infection and took a week of Levaquin, then Ceftriaxine IV, then three weeks of Augmentin. I was fine while on the medicine, but two days after I went off I started having diarrhea and/or loose/soft stools. This has lasted for 8 weeks now and so far I've not gotten any answers from the doc. They've put me on probiotics, which I've taken faithfully, to no avail. I went on a bland diet, that didn't help either.
I had these terrible shooting pains and cloudy urine for over a month and I still have pain in my pelvis/cords/veins after cipro, augmentin, amycin, methenamine, few days of clotrimazole. the skin on top of my penis had some cuts and was scaly. I've had this terrible numbness and a varicocele and low testosterone and am still young but exhausted please is there anything I can do to heal the numbness and pain? my urologist never did a prostate or semen culture.
I spoke with a Urologist who said it may be Urethritis and to mention that to my GP. My GP but me on Augmentin. I will be finished with my Augmentin today and it seemed to get better for a day or so but now I am urinating every hour as before and still have pains in my lower back. I have yet another urinalysis on Saturday to see if the blood is gone. If it is not, any suggestions on what it may be?
The symptoms did go away shortly after catching the std. Well i recently thought i had a kidney infection or a urinary track infection. I thought it was caused from the untreated std. I took some augmentin that a friend gave me. i took about 1-2 a day for about 5 days in a row. It has been about 2 weeks since i last took them. Now for about a week now iv been through a big mental change.
Yes but if you have a bladder infection then you cant risk going off of antibiotics. If you do that may turn into a kidney infection which could have a terrible outcome.. If you are worried call your Dr. and ask them to prescribe a different antibiotic that will clear up your infection without causing bad side effects. Good luck and i hope you feel better!
I'm just worried it could be kidney problems. For the past 2 weeks, at night, i get a shivering of the skin below the ribcage on both sides. it doesn't hurt - it just starts shaking, like when you're outside and it's very cold. i can feel it right below the 'girls.' I have a UTI and was on the wrong meds - switched the othr day. Anyone think i should be concerned and go back to the Dr. and tell him about this SX or just wait for the augmentin to work? I'm getting paranoid.
- around 100 - He ordered a f/u CT and it showed a RLQ fluid collection with inflammatory changes and fat stranding in the region. My PCP put me on Augmentin for 10 days. Was he just being cautious or would this be considered an abscess?? I would greatly appreciate your time and response. Thank you, R.L.L.
