Amoxicillin for walking pneumonia

Common Questions and Answers about Amoxicillin for walking pneumonia


Avatar f tn Also, usually walking pneumo is caused by a bacteria , mycoplama or chlamydia pneumonia. Did you get any antibiotics for it the first time? If not perhaps the bacteria was lingering and when you got overtired or ill you got it back. I would see a doctor so they can listen to your lungs, perhaps do a culture and perhaps give you an antibiotic. They may want to check your immune system to see if you are low in white blood cells or antibodies. They can do that with a blood test.
Avatar f tn I never know I can get STD thru oral,wasn't educated as much, after tat happened to him around the same time I started to get sick again and found out I had acute pharyngitis and while I was the I had std test and request a throat swab ,still waiting to hear back, they gave me 4tablets of azithromycin 250mg for being exposed and amoxicillin for my pharyngitis. Since the std is all new to me I've been w one person for the past 7years he's cheated.
Avatar f tn Because she was so sick her doctor sent her to the hospital and she was admitted with walking pneumonia. The doctors at the hospital said they didn't think she really had Lyme and sent us on our way. In 2010 she had a new PCP who re-tested her and again her IgM was positive. She was given a months worth of doxycycline and that was all. About 2 months ago her IgM was positive again(IgG always negative) and she was given a months worth of amoxicillin.
Avatar n tn If the other symptoms came later I would go back and see yoru doctor as it sounds like you ahve a secondary infection in your chest and may have walking pneumonia (Mycoplasma pneumoniae) or bronchitis. I am just trying to find what exactly happened to you. It does sound like you need to go back to the doc.
Avatar m tn Hello, last week I was diagnosed with HPV, the symptomas are two small lesions in my prepuce and a lot of burning and painful while urination, and at the same time a strong crisis of tonsillitis appeared. I started taking amoxicillin and in 3 days the tonsillitis disappeared, the lesions are now two small red points but my urethra is still swollen.
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 I went to the doctor and they believe that we both have walking pneumonia which is a bacterial infection that can be somewhat supressed by some antibiotics but not completely cured. I was given arythromicin antibiotic and a metrodol (prednisone)steroid pack. Good thing I didn't wait to go...
Avatar f tn Also, throughout this whole time, my voice has been hoarse/scratchy, and it's STILL (day #17) not normal! WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME? I was on amoxicillin for 7 days (was told bronchitis from doc and given prescrip.), and it didn't do anything...this makes me think it's definitely viral. Right now, it's a stuffy/runny nose, a lingering cough that is usually productive, and a hoarse voice. Is it normal to have a lingering, but substantially BETTER (if that's possible) cough 2.
Avatar n tn A 7 day course of antibiotics (Amoxicillin) however, is not a treatment for tuberculosis. It is possible that your doctor is thinking of pneumonia. The use of antibiotics in this setting is no longer recommended due to the risk of developing antibiotic resistance. Of course recommendations would change based on prevailing microorganisms in the region, but there is a general trend that treatment with antibiotics to make sure that any infection will be covered is losing favor.
535089 tn?1400677119 Ampicillin is suspect. Amoxicillin has caused positives for cocaine. Diazepam tests positive for PCP as well as the ingredient in some cough medicines, Dextromethorophan. Your own enzymes. A small fraction of the population excrete large amounts of certain enzymes in their urine which can produce a positive drug test. Dr. John Morgan of the Dept.

Avatar m tn It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
Avatar f tn paxiled The point right now is she claims to be in pain but is being denied the pt that her doctor who actually saw her recommends. It is not to discuss whatever theory you have right now so I think we should focus on her receiving the recommended attention that is being denied first.
Avatar n tn I've had success with Amoxicillin and Amoxil in the past for this but don't have enough info to help my MD make a decision. I'm too far along to think about stopping tx now. Five weeks left! Also, anyone ever heard of taking "Colloidal Silver " for infections, and how well can a damaged liver handle that? Thanks for any and all suggestions!
5264083 tn?1404669334 I am so happy I found this because I was treated for a uti and given amoxicillin a few weeks ago and now my period is 13 days late. I have period symptoms accompanied by dizziness and feeling a bit off but no period. I have taken 5 PT different brands and times but all negative. I was really worried because I have never been this late but now I see this is common.
Avatar n tn My husband's chest pain keeps moving around too (has had since 11/15). He took amoxicillin for 2 1/2 days and was no better, so I pushed him back to the dr. He was given something else...can't remember what, not Zithromax, has finished those pills and it's not gone--has just moved into the right side of his chest, as well. So you are fortunate that yours went away so quickly and you were able to go on with treatment.
Avatar f tn ) He said I would be getting regular SOC (PegIntron by Schering and Riba, I believe) for 48 weeks with the HCV 796 for the duration. I guess I'll just have to wait and see exactly what it will be. Is there anyone out there who is enrolled yet in this trial, or anyone out there considering it? Or ... anyone out there with any words of wisdom / encouragement :) ? Thanks. Best to all.
Avatar n tn perhaps you should consider switching doctors -- just for fresh insight. Maybe they can list for you all the causes for recurring fever (are her hormones ebbing and flowing on a regular basis, even for her age?) that also cause joint pain. And then the most common causes for each seperately...AND then tell you how they have ruled them out -- are there conclusive tests...was she tested specifically for it, etc.? Again, I'm sorry I can't help.
Avatar m tn If an unfortunate side effect should happen to you, well, I am sorry. I am not charging you for this, you are not paying me for it, so don’t sue me. It’s a responsibility that you have to assume. If you expect a risk-free life, with massive compensation should things don’t work out, then don't try this. So, why is this book manuscript free? The physician who reviewed it said, “The materials cost less than $5.
Avatar n tn This regimen helps for about 3 to 4 hours but it always returns. I took Lunesta for a couple of times but not 2 nights in a row. Thats the only common thread I can see. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn Colloidal silver is quack medicine. Stuff kills some bacteria in a petri-dish and sucks money from people. Exercise, esp. aerobic exercise, good nutrition, no caffiene, reduced sugar intake, and staying well hydrated is the best non-drug "therapy" around (yes, read article about caffiene and AST levels).
Avatar n tn Every article on the internet has to do with Strep B in prenatal women (when it is very dangerous for the baby) and nothing about Strep B for 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.
661200 tn?1225486613 As you now know, treatments for one problem often contradict the treatment for another - as with the furosemid. 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.
436516 tn?1382388265 I am currently having many of these same problems. Tickle in throat, sharp pain, cough, tears, nose dripping. This has been happening for the past 5 months. I've been to a ENT. He said it was my tonsils. I had them out. At first while I was on meds during my recovery from the surgery the symptoms stopped. But after I stopped taking the pain killers anti-biotic and the steroids the tickle came back. I've been taking Previcid for acid reflux but this has not stopped the attacks.
Avatar f tn I also had dental surgery, last Thursday, so am on Amoxicillin for that as well as a little Vicodin at night. They had to remove a very decayed tooth and begin prep for bridge. Yes, I have also been blessed (lol) with periodontal disease so have had several surgeries with that. The thing that bugs me is I am over 5 months out from my surgery and while I feel better than I did at 2 weeks, like you, I guess I expected to be 100 percent by now.
Avatar n tn After 1 and 1/2 days feel better and pressure is leaving but scared because I know after this 6 days I'll be back to where I was and I'm extremely run down and need to rebuild to fight whatever this is. Scheduled for allergy testing the end of the month. Have always had sinus, but NEVER like this and for SO long. Exhausted. If anyone gets relief please post, as will I.
Avatar n tn Oh, and she was also tested for cystic fibrosis. She had pneumonia 2 times and had Rosefin shots once for three days for the pneumonia. That was the only time that she actually sounded good. I wonder how cruddy she feels sometimes. She runs a high grade fever about once every 6 weeks. I used to take her to the doctor and get antibiotics, but it never helped. Either way, the fever goes away after 3 days. She is not in daycare and my parents watch her sometimes.
Avatar n tn i am a single parent and don't know how in the world i will support my children if i can't work. now I'm 33, i have had pneumonia for 4 weeks and still have not gotten better. i get sinus infections all the time especially during that time of the month. i have had my share of migraines during that time of the month too. now they are telling me that my thalassemia may be getting worse. i didn't think it could. now my heart palpation are very offten. i have at least 5 a day.
Avatar n tn They sent me to a respiratory specialist and checked me for athsma. No Athsma or pneumonia. They never found any problem. Next I went to a ENT specialist and he found nothing except he said my tonscils were very large. My tonscils always feel big in the back of my throat and I also hear a small clicking noise when I swallow. It's always my right side and I get this dry tickling feeling which causes me to cough uncontrollably.
