Common Questions and Answers about How long is omnicef good for

omnicef

One of the things I have noticed in following stories here is how variable the course is for each person -- most peculiar. No wonder the drs are clueless. How ashamed they should be at their abdication of responsibility. So there is hope for all of us, it's just that we have to take different roads to the destination. (Note to wily bugs: DIE! NOW!!
It's different for everyone, esp. if you also have co-infections with Lyme. Theoretically, the sooner you get diagnosed and treated, the shorter the course of treatment, but it doesn't always work that way. LLMDs (Lyme Literate MDs) treat until symptoms resolve and tests clear, and that varies for everyone. Can be up to 18 months or so, but can also be shorter time. Were you diagnosed with any coinfections, and how long does your MD propose to treat?
I think I came back from a trip to the East Coast one summer, not feeling very well, but thinking I was just tired from doing too much -- you know how that is! The docs had no explanation for my fatigue and sometimes heart irregularities. Then two years later, I came back from another summer trip to the East Coast much worse -- similar symptoms, only stronger and more alarming. After many docs and almost a year later, I finally had a Lyme and babesiosis diagnosis.
If it is not clearing up then they should finish the course and put him on a different category of antibiotic (like if they had him on amoxicillin, they should get out of that family(augmentin is in the same family) and try maybe something called omnicef, that is what worked for our daughter, and then we had to have the Rocephin shots. They have to switch the antibiotic for immunity build-up and for what works on the infections your child gets.
There are exercises which may help you improve urinary function especially if a neurogenic or nerve related cause is concerned. Any medications when taken for too long a time needs close supervision of a physician. We are trying to avoid any side effects here. The longer a drug is taken, the chance for its side effects to manifest may be higher. Ask your physician about this. Putting you off the medication to see how you may fare without it will be necessary.
So I've done antibiotics and will continue to pursue that approach, but am also ready to go find out about herbal remedies too, and use both approaches with my doctor's knowledge (to avoid drug conflicts). Sorry for the long post, but this is something I've been thinking about for a long time.
thanks for the quick response. My dr did put me on valtrex and i have taken it for 3 days. no signs of improvement of the ulcer. Still painful. Was just hoping that maybe the irritation from sex just turned into some kind of vaginal infection other than herpes. If it is herpes, could it have stayed dorment in me for a 1 1/2 years? When did I get it? I have only been with this guy for 3 months and was not sexually active before him for 1 1/2 years.
TRY to stay as active as you can (I know, VERY difficult) - some exercise is good for fibro pain and fatigue, HOWEVER, GENTLE exercise is the key. Gentle stretching, water exercises, walking (not miles and miles) are good - heavy aerobic classes, running marathons, etc. - probably are not teh best.
I don't know what to do, I still have to take the meds for another 6 days and who knows how long it will take to go back to normal! I don't want to deal with it anymore...Should I ask the dr for a different med? Should I just take an OTC stool hardener? Is there anything (i.e cream) I can use to make the irritation go away! I feel like such a baby but I am so uncomfortable. Sorry for the random post and graphic-ish nature...I just need help!
So far my son has had 2 of the 3 shots. My first question is how quickly do these shots work? My other question is: Is there some underlying problem that is causing these ear infections, something more serious? He has not had any other type of infection i.e. strep throat, sinus , just ear infections. My concern is that he has some type of immunodeficeny. I am looking for a little piece of mind.....
I was given a breathing treatment and put on doxycycline, which made me very sick to my stomach. I was switched to Omnicef and Symbicort and take Zofran as needed for nausea, and tolerate those fine. I've been on antibiotics since last Weds 10/28. I started feeling a little better and my fever went down on Fri. Sunday night it started creeping up and remains up today (99.9 on tylenol). I'm beyond exhausted and have no stamina.
The only time when it my inflammation was all gone I was on a antibiotic and fungal/yeast aliminator (nystatin and omnicef) for one day then the inflammation started up again. Too much of a good thing with the meds I think. How do I get my immune system to quit working so hard, thats basically what UC a auto immune hiccup. What about this diarreah, how do I get my stools back to being formed? How do i get the inflamation down?Please help if you can.
I have had Lyme since August 18, 2005, and have experienced many symptoms but the mood swings and mental changes have been the worst. I never had any problems with anger or depression prior to getting Lyme disease, but that is who I am now. I fly off the handle over the stupidest things that seem like life or death to me at the time. There is that irrational thought.
First of all, keep in mind that I am unable to diagnose you because I am unable to examine you, this forum is for educational purposes. Doxycycline is a good antibiotic for Lyme disease. Additional treatment would depend on whether there is persistent symptoms after your course of antibiotics is completed. Late complications of Lyme include, arthritis, numbness/tingling and psychiatric disease. I would ensure that your son has close follow up to evaluate for these symptoms.
It seems to me that there is a name for this, about not eating for fear of vomiting. I've read about it somewhere. Its a good idea to have her completely checked out, physically. She really could be sick. I wonder if the Omnicef is making her vomit, too. And the ear infection, it could have some impact on it. But a general refusal to eat due to fear of vomiting...I think there's a name for that, specifically in children.
73 on a worthless antibiotic, and just spent another $30 on the copay for this visit. Then I ended up paying $34 for Omnicef, an antibiotic cream for the impetigo, and a steroid cream for the HFM rash. He can't go back to daycare until Wednesday. Get home and Trevor is still battling the fever every three hours with the NSAIDs. He's still needing them every three hours today, so he's out of school a second day.
I took Julian to his doctors appointment to get his ears checked out because he has gone through 2doses of antibiotics and he still has one! Go figure co now he is on Omnicef 2x a day! Amy I talked to my doc and she finally put him on the Prevacid Solutabs!!! YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYy! Thanks so much for all your help!!!! Whats the best way to give them to him???
I must admit, I was a bit confused with the use of Omnicef as a tx for otitis media, but each dr. is different, and I don't know the baby's PHx, other than allergy to cephalasporin.
I am getting a bit concerned.....how long will a cyst drain for? Am I missing something here, what questions to I need to be asking? The Dr's seem to feel this was/is only a cyst, but the fact the infection won't clear is beginning to worry me. Or this could be a normal course of how these things go, I don't know. Any suggestions appreciated.
Two out of three urine samples were positive for the Lyme bacteria. My doc prescribed omnicef about two weeks ago and as of yesterday, I started feeling awful again. He thinks its a herx. I've been on multiple abx for about 9 months. Anyway, he also started me on Flagyl today along with the omnicef. He said to start the Flagyl once the herx is over. He said if the Flagyl doesn't work then he will start IV abx. I'm a wreck.
Through some sort of fate, the 1st appt was canceled for snow and they didnt set the next on up for 4 weeks, which, by then, she had been ear infection free for 8 weeks, so the Dr is letting us hold off for now. Once her last infection cleared, I was determined to do ANYTHING to not make her get ear tubes, so I tried what some of the older people in our family had suggested, 3 drops of warm olive oil in her ears every few days.
This went on everyday until no mucous and I was well. I don't think I had a fever or at least a very high fever for how sick I was and the length. As I got older the more often I got Pneumonia to where I was getting it every year, summer and winter along with bronchitis and Pleurisy together. I finally asked doctor for a once in a life Pneumonia shot and I haven't had all three since and that has been sixteen years.
org/cgi/content/abstract/134/6/479 When do I need antibiotics for sinusitis, as an adult? Doc! My face hurts on one side and colored mucous is coming out! These are common complaints from adult patients who think they have acute bacterial sinusitis. What people don't know is that it's not common before 7 days of illness, and it's usually best to hold off on antibiotics until symptoms have stuck around for more than a week.
Good luck!! I hope your little one is recovering well.
Be sure your doctor knows exactly how much Tylenol you are giving, and for how long you have been giving it. Unless you are talking to the doc every day, he/she may not know how much you are giving. I agree that if things aren't getting better, you should ask for a referral. Sometimes a fresh pair of eyes looking at a problem can see something different to try.
Hey... How long have you been on the abx? When I first started my 3 abx pulsing regimen, I had diarrhea for the first week or so and stomach cramping. Then it went away. I don't know if it was a side effect of not, but it did get better. I'm still taking 3 antibiotics now with no problems. Maybe it'll get better, but you should check with your dr probably just in case. I'm the same as you... very skeptical!!
This isn't really a question, more of a status update. I recently enjoyed some of my best consecutive weeks since I got sick years ago. I was still symptomatic, but I had the stamina and mental clarity to get through a few big pushes at work. It felt good to not feel on a daily basis that my illness was greatly impacting my abilities. Through all of this I have also been on a more aggressive round of antibiotics for the last couple of months, pulsing factive, tindamax, and zith.
I will check the nursing book info on it if I get time at work tomorrow for you. I was wondering what meds you have been on and for how long? Has your blood tests all been good? I am now on Ceftin 1000mg twice daily and doxy 400mg twice daily. I hope this works for the brain fog.
He was also just on Omnicef as the Augmentin is no longer strong enough, for a left ear infection. Both boys were really sick and I took them in, Cam was on day 7 of Omnicef and had RSV last week. We discovered that now both ears were infected and he had influenza A. Carson had some other viral bug, but got influenza A too soon after. Long weekend for us, but they gave Cam the shot of Rocephen for 2 days and he looked good in his ears.
25 microns x 50 microns) It is as long, as a fine human hair is thick. Borrelia burgdorferi is a highly motile bacteria, it can swim extremely efficiently through both blood and tissue because of internal propulsion. It is propelled by an internal arrangement of flagella, bundled together, that runs the length of the bacteria from tip to tip. Like other Borrelia bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi has a three layer cell wall which helps determine the spiral shape of the bacteria.
