Difference between amoxicillin and penicillin

Common Questions and Answers about Difference between amoxicillin and penicillin


Avatar n tn We took her to the emergency room, and I told the doctor about the amoxicillin allergy, and that my theory was that, since amoxicillin and penicillin are created by mold naturally, there was a connection. I have never wanted to slap someone so much - this doctor told me that was ridiculous - that all amoxicillin and penicillin products are created synthetically. He said I just must have missed something and she got into something.
Avatar n tn I had a sore throat that came on after 8 days, first diagnosed as strep, courses of augmentin, amoxicillin, and penicillin didn't clear it. Then diagnosed as sinusitis, 2 more weeks of aumentin - still sore. Diagnosed acid reflux, come off anitbiotics, sore throat clears up. This was after having it about 6 weeks. There were funny, zit looking spots on the uvula too, Doctors said they were nothing, but they also cleared after the antibiotics, or time.
Avatar n tn My daughter developed asthma six months ago, and this is the only difference in her immunological state now compared to when she was younger and could take penecillin. I wonder if there is a connection between the risk for anaphylaxis and asthma? She also had very odd mental reactions to the steroids and high doses of benadryl she had to have to reverse the anaphylaxis, which is not something I've seen mentioned before as a side effect. It affected her like she was on drugs.
Avatar n tn I asked my doctor about the relationship of my ear face and neck pain and he says he's never heard of the relationship between bad teeth and all these symptoms. I have extremely painful teeth and am ready to have them all pulled. Can't afford it but willing to go through it some how. I'm going through hell and have for close to fifteen years and eat tylenol ones like it's candy! I go to emergency when the neck and face swell so bad I can't take anymore- three times now in ten months!
Avatar f tn I have some feeling in my chin and I can feel intense cold and heat. the itchy and tingly feeling are few and far between now. my lip feels like its chapped and burning a little. this is a good thing though, as pain means no nerve damage. I definitely can tell a difference between today and when this first started about 7 weeks ago. I think I still have a few weeks before im over this completely, but the worst is over. the teeth being squeezed together thing is pretty much gone.
184674 tn?1360864093 So if he goes through this again between March and June next year, we'll get allergy testing for him to determine what I already know. He's allergic to pollen, which triggers sinus pressure, which leads to improper drainage, which gives him ear and sinus infections that last for four months straight.
Avatar f tn parenteral penicillin and ceftriaxone in combination; or roxithromycin and cotrimoxazole in combination. Combination therapy may be worthwhile in patients who do not respond to monotherapy. Physicians should observe patients closely for possible Jarisch-Herxheimer reactions after the institution of therapy; this allergic/inflammatory response may manifest in the skin, mucous membranes, viscera, or nervous system. Other treatments Stage 1 conjunctivitis and photophobia require no therapy.
242516 tn?1368227505 A virus hijacks your own body's healthy cells and uses it to reproduce and spread. A bacteria is its own living cell and multiplies and spreads on its own and is easier to destroy in that process. Speaking of outbreaks, influenza is finally reaching Palo Alto right around now.
Avatar n tn I now have been feeling a similar tearing feeling on the top of my hand coming down from between my index and middle finger and then it goes numb for a period. What gender are the rest of you? Some things like MS tend to be more common in one sex vs another.
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 n tn To assess your risks, it would be helpful to know whether your partner's herpes exposure was exactly that, an exposure to a known-infected partner; or whether that partner believes that he transmitted the infection to her. In the latter circumstance, it sounds like a good bet he also exposed you. Your symptoms have some features consistent with new herpes, including the genital symptoms.
Avatar f tn ALSO, I am allergic to amoxicillin and penicillin. I mean, I haven't tried any of them since I was young about 5. Amoxicillin gave me huge welt like hives all over. I am concerned about taking Ceftin since it is something like a third generation form and may contain amounts of anything that ends in "cillin". But my LLMD said he's never had a problem with people taking Ceftin that were allergic to amoxicillin.
Avatar n tn now i had anaphylactic (allergic) reaction to the antibiotic cephalisporin a year ago, and a najor stomach upset from penicillin this year. does this put me at increased risk for adverse reactions to Pegasys? please help me.
Avatar n tn I am sure I am torturing myself by obsessing on this at times, but that is my nature, somewhat, and need reassurance at times. Does this slight wording make any difference, is it just the individual technicians interpretation? I know I need to get past this. I thank you for your time and have a healthy New Year!
Avatar f tn To further clarify the point I was trying to make above, I should mention that there is a major difference between "drug side effects" and "allergic reactions." The commonly experienced side effects of chemo drugs (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, hair loss, fingernail and toenail changes, etc.) are related to CHARACTERISTICS OF THE DRUGS, and are therefore experienced to a greater or lesser extent by just about everyone who takes them.
Avatar m tn Most, if not all, the antibiotics I took were on an empty stomach or with liquids, thought that would not dilute their effectivness. This includes 5g and 4.8g of Penicillin and Cloaxicillin x14 days I was supposed to take 2g not 5. Cipro 1g x14days was with Doxy200mg x14 days empty stomach too. Bad gas, SEVERE burning heatrburn, tingling in body were my general side effects. Tongue was coated white, thick white, hard to brush it off with toothbrush.
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 m tn A study published in the Journal of Family Practice in February of 2005 showed that there was no difference between the patients who received an antibiotic and the patients who received a placebo. That’s just one study, but it does cast doubt on the effectiveness of short-term antibiotic treatment for mild acute sinusitis. Taking antibiotics also increases the chance that you can develop a drug-resistance strain of bacteria living in your upper respiratory tract.
Avatar n tn Get a long course of antibiotics or a good treatment of Penicillin k, g or possibly Amoxicillin, but Penicillin definitely puts and end to it if your not allergic to it. Usually Penicillin/Flagyl combo gets rid of it too. And many midwife OB's don't understand it and look at you like you are from mars, assuming it's a yeast infection or if there is a long stringy discharge associated with it, they will say it's ovulatory discharge, they have no idea what they are talking about.
Avatar n tn yeast infection (tried both systemic and topical treatments), Strep B (3 or 4 rounds of differnt antibiotics) both sytemic {Penicillin, Amoxicillin, etc} and topical {Metronidazole Vaginal gel}) NONE of them worked. I was so very dissapointed. I started to think it was in my brain, I have a great relationship with my husband, but then I started wondering if things were bad in my subconscious. I was even willing to seek counseling.
Avatar f tn •Foods (commonly eggs, shellfish, nuts, berries, dyes, or other additives) •Drugs (any drug can touch off an allergic reaction, although allergies to penicillin, sulfa, and aspirin are especially common) •Pollens and plants (nettles, poison ivy, poison oak, and so on) •Animal fur •Insect bites or stings •Exposure to heat, cold, or sunshine Comfort is the main goal of treatment, since most hive outbreaks are relatively minor and short-lived.
Avatar f tn Caught lyme in first trimester and only got diagnosed a month ago and have been on amoxicillin now since diagnosed and will be until the birth of baby. I am aware that I fall into all 'unfavourable ' outcomes in regards to pregnancy outcome but I feel I need some kind of hope to hold on to ! I know what the odds are and the case studies etc.. And I have prepared myself for a congenital lyme baby but am I completely doomed?
Avatar n tn As stated above, I had this and was diagnoised with an inflammation of the sinuses right between the nose and eye. It felt like someone hit me in the nose. I took an antibiotic and it cleared in a few days.
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.
Avatar n tn What could be the name of the syndrome experienced by many women who have posted here? There must be a connection between giving birth and neurological complaints that do not fit other neurological diseases. My daughter is three months postpartum with numbness and weakness in her arms and legs, fatigue, and visual disturbances. Her MRI (done when the baby was 3 months) is perfectly normal. Her baby weighed 10 pounds at birth. She had an epidural during her delivery.
Avatar m tn I have measured urine output between 5-6 liters a day, and my water consumption is nowhere near that high. My understanding is that polyuria is comorbid with diabetes, but I don't believe that my modest blood glucose readings would lead to this much urination. I am literally peeing full bladders (16-24 oz.) 10 or more times a day, and 3-4 times at night alone ( I wake up to pee every few hours).
Avatar f tn I do that, have a deep filling done and suddenly the pain is constant and terrible and now includes my tongue...which is by far the worst and scariest. So far, this is still going on. I have seen three dentists, an oral surgeon, two ent's and a neurologist besides my gp and the prompt care doctor I started with. I have had a brain mri, a neck ultrasound, and a neck CT scan.

Avatar n tn I wore a thong for the day through the night and i regret it its like a rug burn between the lips and hole. it wants to dry up but panties get stuck, and when i go to the bathroom it like, i dont know takes the scab off or something. Anyways it hurt cuz the panties get stuck. Is it thong burn? how long does it take to heel. I know its not an STD! Somebody tell me something. It really itches and hurt when the panties get um dried to the spot between the butt hole and vaginal area.
Avatar f tn within days Oh, I should tell you that the itch would move from place to place on my lower arms between the elbow and the wrist and sometimes backs of hands with every episode, different location. It takes a few days to go completely out of the system, but it's worth a try to anyone who has this. Last night, I drank some Kroger generic brand diet lemon-lime soda, thinking MAYBE the Coke brand could be the problem and not the actual aspartame.
