Amoxicillin for kidney infection

Common Questions and Answers about Amoxicillin for kidney infection


Avatar n tn If you do not take the antibiotic, you'll likely feel miserable and a simple urinary tract infection could get worse and become a kidney infection and make you even more sick. I would always stick with the advice of your doctor rather than what anyone else might tell you - if for some reason you are skeptical of what they say, check with another doctor or a pharmacist!
Avatar f tn I have a kidney infection and in on keflex anti biotic. If they prescribed anti biotic its BC its important, kidney infection can cause pre term labor and it was complicating my pregnancy. I'm 21 weeks out of my first trimester though, if u were really worried u can call you're dr and ask about the risks.

Avatar n tn I have an 8 month old who was giving amoxicillin for ear infection and a bad sinus infection. after about 3 hours after I gave her the first dose. She broke out into a huge rash that covered here entire body. Then she started weezing and having problems breathing. So we took her to the ER. The doctor there said that she needed to go to the childrens hospital right away. So we went there and she stayed there for about 2 weeks. The doctor said that she was allergic to amoxicillin.
Avatar f tn Also, I understand it's very rare for males, especially at my age, to develop a kidney infection, let alone a UTI of any sorts, so should this development be of any concern to me? I'm supposed to call my GP for the urinalysis results today or tomorrow, so I'm definitely going to do that. Thanks!
Avatar m tn now I have a bit of lower back pain which seems like a UTI or kidney infection. My test was three days ago and I started dribbling urine for approx 26 hrs after, up until I drank cranberry. During the penis dribbling it caused my testicles to become enlarged, hot, extremely dry skin & irritable. My questions: 1. Could the amount of amoxicillin and the time taken (1 hour before) have given me a false negative on any or all of the tests? 2.
1284078 tn?1271590711 first i dont really know what that means and second my reflux was in my right kidney i have never had problems with the left.

203342 tn?1328740807 I'm pretty sure you can just have her use the over-the-counter creams and it'll clear up right away, it always did for me. Also have her eat LOTS of yogurt while she's taking the amoxicillin it'll keep the yeast infection from coming back/getting worse.
Avatar f tn Hi, The UTI or kidney infection would not always show up on a CBC, especially one that is done early when your symptoms are just starting. The urine dip would be the best test to diagnose the UTI. A kidney infection can come on overnight, this is not uncommon at all. I would advise you to continue all medications as prescribed for the UTI. Make sure to finish the medicine, even if your symptoms go away.
Avatar f tn said the urine was positive for nitrites but negative for leukocytes. He said this was not normal. Had me go to the hospital lab for a urine culture which will come back on Monday. Then I have an appt. for a scope in two weeks. He suggested I could have a persistent UTI that is resistant to the antibiotics I've taken. Or it still could be a gynecological issue. He prescribed Pyridium for the urethra discomfort. Just took one and hoping it helps the discomfort I feel.
661200 tn?1225486613 Even worse, there isn't a darn thing to do for kidney failure other than treat the symptoms as best you can. Once kidney cells are destroyed, they cannot regenerate like other organs such as the liver can. When kidney failure reaches the last stages, you will notice a marked increase in nausea and vomiting and probably urinary accidents as well. The nausea is from the toxins remaining in the bloodstream that the kidneys can no longer filter out.
Avatar m tn I have a throat infection diagnosed by doctor..they gave me amoxicillin 500 mg for 7 days...1 day after starting the antibiotic I developed urinary discomfort and sore penis and internal burning when urinating..can throat infection spread to urinary tract? I have had sexual health tests done and no gonorrhoea or chlamydia were present no penis discharge, waiting for urine and blood tests.
Avatar f tn did she also die from kidney failure..? How long ago? I am so very sorry. My heart hurts for you. It is so difficult to watch our loved ones leave us. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy.
Avatar f tn I am a 34 year old, overweight, female. I had a bout of sore throat and ear infection, I took amoxicillin for 10 days. Just a week afterwards, about 2 weeks ago I started having the feeling of urgency to urinate. My urine did look a little cloudy at first. I was really busy at work and live quite a long distance from my doctor, so I thought I would try a home remedy first.

Avatar f tn When I finally did talk to an emergency physician, he told me that I didn't need to take antibiotics unless the cut showed signs of infection, but I am still worried. Is this standard procedure for dirty cuts? I also worry that taking antibiotics every 6 months for dental cleanings will create antibiotic resistance. Please comment on this also.
Avatar f tn In September 2009, I started having problems with swallowing food (the reflex would stop working mid swallow and I would choke), migraines started happening frequently, my blood pressure would sky rocket upwards of 190/130 (normally 110/72), symptoms of Raynaud's syndrome and I was lethargic and sick. I was treated for bacterial sinus infection and bacterial kidney infection.
Avatar n tn What has anyone been told about how many are too many? On a visit to my ER I was told 6-12/minute are tolerable. For them maybe but for me I'm uncomfortable. I guess I will have this for life. I know I have room to go up on the beta blocker - I started at 25mg and am now up to 50. Is anyone out there on this one and if so, how much? I read about you all limiting caffeine and stress,etc... I don't overdo it on any of that. It doesn't seem to matter. Thanx for listening/reading.
242516 tn?1368227505 If your doctor is worried that you might have pneumonia, a chest x-ray can look to see if there's an infection, especially for those who have coughed for more than 3 weeks. With a viral bronchitis, you should avoid antibiotics especially zpacks (Zithromax / azithromycin) which are overprescribed for these symptoms , and can lead to side effects and adverse drug reaction such as rash, antibiotic drug resistance and yeast infections.
Avatar f tn First I had a uti that turned into a kidney infection that turned into a bladder infection now a yeast infection!!
Avatar f tn Is it possible to have a kidney infection, or some sort of problem - without there being infection present in the urine test? I'm not imagining this pain, and I'm fed up of feeling so tired and unwell. Any advice wouod be most welcome, thank you.
Avatar f tn She thought I had sinusitis and put my on amoxicillin. I took this for 10 days and still did lot have much relief. After being on winter break for two weeks and just basically relaxing and drinking a lot of fluids, I finally went to a doctor. They did blood testing for mono. I got the results back and they said everything was fine with my blood work. Ever since then, I still have had headaches, on and off stuffy nose and feverish feeling with no actual registered fever and fatigue.
Avatar f tn It was a form of a staph infection so they added an antibiotic to the other one, I'm taking amoxicillin and bactrim and I go every two days for them to check it but it seems to be healing up they took the packing out and it doesn't really drain anymore
Avatar n tn They did blood tests and found a white cell count of 21. My kidney function was below 60 so they gave me antibiotics for a kidney infection. * for a month after discharge my symptoms got increasingly worse. The antibiotics did not help. I got very high fevers over 38, my blood was measured at the doc to be 160 on top. My heart palpitations were extreme and I would wake up drenched in sweat with severe nausea, shaking badly and wanting to vomit.
Avatar f tn Convenia was out of the question as we gave that to her a few years previous for another infection and it caused her to vomit for nearly 3 days straight. The vet said she was allergic. He then tried Amoxicillin, which he said had a slightly similar base to Convenia but should be different enough, and was milder than Augmentin. We gave her that, and after 1 day she started projectile vomiting, the same as with Convenia. So we had to stop that as well.
Avatar n tn You will need to take a combination of medications (under medical supervision) like a proton pump inhibitor such as omeprazole, lansoprazole or pantoprazole empty stomach in the morning and an antacid gel after meals for complete relief. Possibility of H pylori infection too should be looked into by a carbon urea breath test and a combination antibiotic tried. Life style changes that will help include: Avoid heavy meals and eat frequent small meals.
