Amoxicillin and grapefruit

Common Questions and Answers about Amoxicillin and grapefruit


Avatar f tn Hello, I was told by a doctor I might have a chest infection so she put me on 500mg of amoxicillin three times a day. I'm also on diazepam for muscle spasms and anxiety. I cannot remember is she said it was ok go take them both together. If ok to take together this will put my mind at rest and stop me panicing.
Avatar n tn Good Afternoon: I am taking 500 mg of amoxicillin 3xs a day. I just ate half of an orange--and was wondering how long should I wait before I take another dose--or is it best not to eat an orange or drink orange juice before or after each dose?
Avatar n tn I have been checked out by Neuro, ENT and GP and NOTHING. I'm wondering if I have TMJ but I don't know. Here are my symptoms... Right ear pain Right ear fullness/ringing Pain behind right eye spot headaches on right side grinding teeth at night stiff neck - going into my shoulders I had an MRI/MRA back in Oct and all it showed was chronic sinusitis which I am being treated for by my ENT however he knows the pain is not coming from my ear. I am worried. Could this be an aneursym?
Avatar n tn 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.
755322 tn?1330272714 We spent our childhood playing in fields and woods with no thought of anything except avoiding yellow jacket nest and staying on our horses backs :) I was bitten by a lot of dog ticks, and took them off the dogs, gleefully dumping the flailing things into a can of gas. Had a few spells of unknown aches and pains and fatigue but it was passed off as growing pains or Oh you are too tired, go sleep. And sleep i did, for days at a time more than once.
Avatar f tn My labia was so sore and swollen and itchy and I developed a small red blotch that was itchy right on my inner thigh. I also noticed my discharge was a little bit green, although VERY light green, and there was an unpleasant odor. Stupidly, I pretty much chalked it up to more yeast infection problems, until I decided to find a natural supplement (grapefruit seed extract) to help with the yeast.
Avatar n tn i have been suffering from debilatating allergies/sinus probs, fatigue, and dizziness for about a year now. i do have allergies to mold, dust, milk products, and corn products. my allergy doc says my symptoms are all from allergies, but i have been trying everything 2 avoid the allergens, been getting allergy shots, tried numerous allergy medications, with no help from anything! does anyone else experience this type of thing? i seriously feel like i am getting so depressed.
Avatar f tn needing to wee when my bladder is less full burning after weeing bladder pain (feels like period pain its not pleasant) and it goes through to my lower back. I am not sexual active at all, and I drink 7 cups of water a day, the only thing i lack on is my hygiene at times, I wash twice a week. I am always prescribed amoxicillin, once I was given something stronger but that didn't help. Do you think i have something more serious than a UTI?
Avatar n tn I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
Avatar m tn Hi kevdood83. I took metronidazole and amoxicillin for a nasal infection in mid 2011 and started to develop a white coated tongue. I did some research and came across Grapefruit seed extract. GSE is an anti-virus/bacteria/fungi agent. Put a couple drops in some water or juice and gargle. Start with only a couple drops and work your way up to 4 drops. If you use too many drops it will burn your mouth - you don't want that.
1373769 tn?1278607210 Sometimes I get a huge red welt afterwards and usually goes away in maybe an hour or so, but this morning I injected my left thigh (kinda inside fatty part-as I have big thighs) and it has been over 5 hours and the redness is all gone but it is still raised up and about the size of a 50 cent piece. Anybody get this issue? Should I be concerned? I have really senstive skin and perhaps that is it? Also anyone else get nauseous for a bit after each shot? Thanks!
Avatar m tn If you take yogurt the therapeutic levels in the toe and foot will become non-existant and may result in an out-of-control infection, and amputation of the toes, foot, leg and possibly endocarditis, resulting in a heart valve replacement. Not a happy ending. Cipro has been used with MRSA infections, which, untreated have a 20% mortality. Taking yogurt with Cipro allows the MRSA to spread out of control. In this case imageine a fire just starting. You can put out a match with a cup of water.
Avatar m tn After that, wait an hour and take 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil, shake-mix it with 1/2 cup grapefruit juice and drink it with a straw. Down it fast and lay down, face upward, in your bed as fast as possible after drinking it. You will soon begin to have bowel movements so go to the bathroom whenever you need to go. You will begin to expel stones out of your liver and gallbladder. You will notice them since they will be be green and many will float.
Avatar m tn It is effective with bacterial and viral infections, and some but not all fungal infections. The Flip-Turn is the original, and still the best Sinus Flush. WARNING! DISCLAIMER! The technique in this manual involves bending over in a hot shower. Obviously, if you bend over in a shower, there is a slight possibility that you can get dizzy and fall down. You could possibly hit your head, get knocked out, or break something.
Avatar m tn After a week in our local hospital my scrotum had turned blue and black and was the size of a very large grapefruit, the left side had split open. I was taken to the city hospital and the urologist filling in for the one that was on vacation got me in the OR at 11:30pm the day before my birthday. When I woke up I was in severe pain. Doctor and interns came in and explained that the left testicle and tissues and muscles around it had been removed due to the infection.
Avatar n tn My cough came back and I went back to the Doctor and was prescribed Mary's Mouthwash and Amoxicillin. $300 later (no benefits) I still have a terible cough, phlegm and a bright Orange Tongue just in time for halloween!!! Tomorrow I am headed to the Veterans Affairs clinic and am gonna try and figure this all out for $6 instead of $300 well see what happens.
255722 tn?1452550141 thing, and I could use some advice. I have always had problems with amoxicillin and yeast infections. And, I can't tolerate doxy, so the doctor put me on amoxycillin (900mg 2x/day) and I'm supposed to add probenecid (a drug that increases orally taken amox levels in the blood to nearly intravenous levels) starting next week. Here's the deal--the yeast infection started three days ago--ugh.
Avatar n tn I every now and then get really bad itching, but not as much. The combo is acidophillus, garlic, grapefruit seed extract, Vitamin C, and echinacea. I don't know the exact mg, but just look it up. Something that recently happend to me was an abnormal result on a pap smear. Does anyone know if this can be from GSB? This is soemthing new, so I haven't had a chance to ask my gyno yet. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn I'm fairly holistic in approach to health, so idea of IV antibiotics scares me (have friend whose kidney was destroyed that way). Am presently using Chinese herbs for inflammation and about to try using Grapefruit Seed extract in Netti pot to induce drainage.....just trying to keep it under control pending diagnosis as I fear serious consequences if undiagnosed too long. Has anyone else had Sphenoid issues while using CPAP?
Avatar n tn I was given cortisone to use vaginally twice a week and premarin. The premarin caused problems and so he stopped it. Last week he told me that I would take the cortisone the rest of my life and to come back to see him in a year. I am confused with this and am searching the internet for information. That is when I found your link. I would also like any information on this subject.
Avatar f tn Transfered 2 grade A and 1 grade B embryos on 3rd day of retieval- I am currently on progesterone oil injection and suppositories, Lovenox injection,Amoxicillin,medrol,folic acid, and prenatal vitamins. My stomach feels very tight and bloated and cramping, and have this unexplainable feeling in abdomen area. These symptoms can be confusing because of the medication.... By the way, Congrats to to all with good news and lots of baby dust to the rest!
Avatar f tn I know that one of the meds that im on now. you cant drink grapefruit juice with, and thats either the Vistaril or the flexeril, I cant remember which one. But I dont drink that nasty stuff any how..
Avatar n tn I just finished the antibiotics and I still feel the same as I did when I first went to him in July. He had me on amoxicillin plus Astelin. I have tried Nasacort, Zyrtec, Claritin, Alavert, etc.... no relief. I am a computer programmer and I can't function like this anymore. Any help would be very appreciated. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I can't get in to see the doctor so I have been taking anti-oxidants, colloidal silver, and I also made a spray with filtered water and grapefruit seed extract (GSE) and have been applying it to the sore areas every few hours. The area on my face is already getting better (in about 12 hours) but the area on my hip is still hurting pretty bad. I also try to take extra good care of myself when this happens: rest, drink plenty of fluids, etc.
233562 tn?1282771982 Anyway I'm excited about next week and then end of jan beg of feb I should be getting an u/s...soo excited and nervous for this. ashleigh- wow girl I still think your may just not be showing up yet. What brand did you use. Go buy a dollar store one. I swear by them all I've used are the dollar store and internet cheapies and I get great results with them..maybe u just implanted late and that is why the hormones are so low. I peed on a stick again yesterday...
Avatar n tn All a normal woman needs to do is to wash with mild soap when showering, and keep the area clean and dry--wear cotton panties, and try not to wear pantyhose. Excessive use of certain medicated wipes may also disturb your normal flora and worsen the problem. Sometimes wearing a panty liner can trap wetness against your skin and contribute to odor.
Avatar n tn I just get these violent coughing attacks that literally feel and behave as if I inhaled a bread crumb, and my body suddenly and violently is trying to cough it up. And just like when we are choking, I have a hard time catching my breath during these violent choking fits. By the time I'm done 4-8 minutes later, I'm shaking, tears streaming down my face, and I've probably wet myself. Its horrible! Does this sound familiar to anyone?
