Is azithromycin in the penicillin family

Common Questions and Answers about Is azithromycin in the penicillin family


Avatar f tn A week ago, I was started on Augmentin 825 2x daily by my medical doctor, to take with the clindamycin I'd already been on for a while. After 4 days on the augmentin I started having major swelling in my hands. This is new, I've never had swelling like this. Yesterday my one hand looked freakishly red and swollen. It was so swollen, that when I straightened out my hand (which was almost difficult), everything turned white, inbetween the redness.
798555 tn?1292791151 I believe I have the Australian version of a neuroborreliosis causing European species called Borrelia Garinii, a different species than the North American Borrelia Burgdorferi, but still within the group that causes human borreliosis. All the treatment experience in the US is on b.burgdorferi. There isn't a whole lot of studies done overseas on different species to know what works best for them. I just know that the penicillin family has worked really well for me.
Avatar m tn Can you get to the sonogram report online and post it here? (Azithromycin is of a family of antibiotics that is used to treat strep. The throat swab will try to identify any bacteria.) Overall, there is little reason to be afraid of lymphoma here.
Avatar n tn I have seen a specialist in the field of infections and is an OBGYN. My husband is a carrier of Strep B. I was put on mupirocin 1% vaginal suppositiory twice daily for 14 days. He is taking Amox-Clav 875 mg twice daily for 14 days. I was treated frist and after sex was reinfected. This was a clue that he was the reason that we were having issues. Both must be treated. Give your Dr a call and let them know. Good luck and feel better.
Avatar n tn I actually feel a crackly throat the next day like I really had smoke in my room. I had a loser family living on the other side who had a grow up going on in the house. That is a totally different smell all together. This is definitely coming from me.
Avatar f tn It makes sense that ampicillin, amoxicillin, or any others in the penicillin family could treat syphilis (being that penicillin is the recommended treatment). I only asked for the source of the info because I wanted to know if they were somehow less effective treatments than regular old penicillin. Thanks again!
242516 tn?1368227505 If so, treat with antibiotics that are more narrow-spectrum such as penicillin since there's virtually no resistance to penicillin by strep in the community. If less than 3 of 4 of these signs are positive, then wait for your strep test or throat culture to show a bacterial infection before taking antibiotics. These are general guidelines, meant to be taken in the whole context of your health history by your doctor.

Avatar n tn genitalium are variable in their accuracy. Further however, azithromycin is the recommended therapy for M.g. 3. See above. It is unlikely you acquired any STD from the encounter you described. 4. I see no reason to seek further care. If you do, you may get more antibiotics "just in case" which is rarely a good idea. It could be that you coincidentally acquired prostatitis but this is unlikely. 5. No. 6.
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 2 is pretty low for an infection that you would have had for several years. My guess is that you had a false positive. I would ask the Dr for another test.
Avatar m tn Hi, If you have noticed a decrease in the pain symptoms, it could mean that the infection is resolving. How long have you been on the ciprofloxacin? Ciprofloxacin is specifically prescribed for infections of the urinary tract due to its mechanism of action. Do continue the other measures, such as adequate hydration and avoidance of caffeine and alcohol.
Avatar m tn I am a 37 year old white male, married with two children. About a week ago I visited a "modeling studio" and used its services. The studio is in the Dallas Texas area and the model was also white and I would say she was at least my age, perhaps older. She said she had recently relocated from Florida. I had a unlubricated Trojan condom on when the model entered the room and received a Blowjob from her.

Avatar m tn i hope you can understand the psychological burden this creates... mounted on the possibility that HIV is making friends with every cell in my body except the ones that keep you healthy... plus my obsessive attitude. i'm just trying to be pointed in the right direction. but i appreciate the concreteness of your response. (i suppose).
Avatar m tn Bad luck! Today is holyday in my town and my doctor wasn´t here, tomorrow i´ll go to see her. The ulcer inside my nose is more painful and bif, today i´m very stressed by that... I know, i was never at risk but in my mind peace is not possible... Anyone know what are the cause for my ulcer? Can be a typical ars symptom? Sorry, sorry and sorry...
Avatar n tn If it isn't there by now then chances are you're in the clear mate, 2-20 days is the normal incubation period, symptoms can include a tingling in the infected finger followed by localised swelling caused by oedema. Good luck.
Avatar n tn She didn't even come in contact with the mold in the closet. The only thing I can figure is that she breathed in the mold spores. 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.
Avatar f tn Also if you are allergicc to Biaxin that is the same as Clarithromycin so you would be allergic to the macrolides like the clarthoromcyin, azithromycin, etc. It is too bad but you might want to get allergy tested to make sure. 2. The ciprofloxacin has side effects of nausea and vomiting, dizzyness, and so forth. You may want to call your doctor about this. Does it say to take with food or without?
Avatar f tn you can't' to very detailed descriptions of the difference. The answer is in the middle. Sorry.
Avatar n tn Today I noticed the swelling in the abscess area has gone down in several spots and the redness is starting to go down as well. Although in some areas there is still some puffiness. The good news is that I can swallow now with practically no pain and am able to open my mouth wide. Since I can open my mouth wide I took a better look at my tonsils as well.
5248641 tn?1367590847 When an antibiotic is started for Lyme the symptoms often/usually are worse. This is because of the Herxheimer (herx) or die off of bacteria in the body. Wike is quoted here simply because it's much easier to understand. "The Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction resembles bacterial sepsis and can occur after initiation of antibacterials, such as penicillin or tetracycline, for the treatment of louse-borne relapsing fever (80-90% of patients) and in tick-borne relapsing fever (30-40%).
Avatar n tn But this doesn’t mean the body is deficient in vitamin D – it means the body is no longer regulating it correctly. Because the VDR isn’t functioning correctly, it can’t degrade the 1,25-D to 25-D even when levels are high; so the level of 1,25D becomes ever higher, affecting the body’s other receptors. So the body tries to block metabolism at the pathway, by downregulating the level of 25-Hydroxyvitamin-D. This is why people with autoimmune diseases show a ‘deficiency’ of the ‘vitamin’.
Avatar f tn He said this was discussed at the last Ilads conference and this attitude is the way things are going now. Anyway, I went back on the original regime I listed, in March this year. The first time I took it, I got a whopping herx reaction from the bactrim and afterwards felt a LOT better. Second time I felt nothing and I wonder if the bacteria had developed resistance to it. I asked the doc and he said yes, that is possible.
Avatar n tn B12 to try, nothing has happened, I cannot brush it as it also makes me gag, and doesn't remove anything, I gargle, and I drink much fluid, water and juices to try to ease the sensation, of tingling and burning I get from it, the only peace I get is when I'm sleeping, I have been on Calcuim for osteoprosis for a few years now, but until 7 months ago nothing happened, I'm going back to another doctor on the panel next week, in the hope that she may have some differant ideas.
Avatar m tn It might be our thing and it might not, its not the same study for HIV like illness that is going in other labs about the cases in china but this study is about cases in Taiwan that also had the unknown disease so it might be ,, What am sure about that now there is something found and they say it might be an immune deficiency and it might be caused from an infection ,, days will show us what we are waiting for http://www.deseretnews.
Avatar n tn it is in the cartilige not the bone but where the two meet seems to be the worst place. it is not inside the nostril either it is in the cartilidge. nothing has happened to me and this makes no sense. I have no other symptoms. no fever no bleeding no runny nose or wattery eyes. has anyone gotten a bona fide medical opinion on this?? seems pretty odd to me...
Avatar m tn You don't know these individuals have HSV and nothing to support that they do. Is there a chance? Sure. Is there a risk? Sure. But its low. In the future get a condom on and use a condom. Or wait until you meet someone to have sex with and eliminate the need for concern. Not everything that goes on down there is herpes. I can give you a perfect walking story of it.

Avatar f tn Their good lyme doctors have left in the last 3 years adn I am hearing more and more from people who are utterly underwhelmed by them adn defect to the Germans. The German Lyme clinic in Augsberg is the best in Europe by far, I would definitely go to them if you cannot afford Charles Ray Jones. www . b-c-a .
Avatar n tn Do you live in a state (such as in the NE) where Lyme Disease is prevalent and/or has you son been in a wooded area? I mention this possibility, since early treatment with an antibiotic is important to cure what can otherwise be a chronic disease. Please keep in mind that I offer this suggestion within the context of my patient experience.
