Infections are invasions of some other organism (fungus, bacteria, parasite) or viruses into places where they do not belong. For instance, we have normal gut bacteria that live within us without causing problems; however, when those penetrate the bowel wall and enter the bloodstream, ...Read more
500mg X 3 a day amoxicillin 7 days, plus 400mg X 2 a day of metronidazole 14 days. Enough to treat possible PID or endomitritis after miscarriage?
Dr prescribed Metronidazole 500 mg 2x day x 7 days for possible trichomoniasis or bv. Waiting on results. Can I take 4 at once instead. ?
Not as effective: Follow your doctor's advice. Bacterial vaginosis needs treatment for a week; single dose is not effective. Even for trichomonas, a full week is best. A single 2 g dose of metronidazole usually is prescribed, but fails to cure 10% of cases. You should also have been tested for other STDs like gonorrhea and chlamydia, which occur with high frequency in women with BV or trich. Good luck! ...Read more
Wondering when would you prescribe a course of 5 days of 300 mg clindamycin after root canal on infected tooth vs 7 days or more. ?
Depends on infection: The effective rate of arresting the infection is on average five days for clindamycin. Taking an antibiotic longer than necessary increases the risk of adverse reactions.

I'm now taking Keflex 500mg 3 times a day for 10 days to treat a bacterial upper respiratory tract infection. Will it help?
Certainly could!: Keflex is a good choice, but no antibiotic kills every germ that can cause bronchitis. Wait and see. You should be showing some improvement in 3-5 days. if you have fever after 72 hours, or no change in the color of your sputum after 5 days, get re-checked, then another antibiotic can be tried. If you get worse, with shortness of breath, fever not controlled by tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen, etc. to ER. ...Read more

Clear of std's. Thought I had a yeast infection. Used fluconazole 100mg for 7 days every other day and Monistat 7. Still having vagina irritation..?
Candida glabrata?: The usual cause of vaginal yeast infections is Candida albicans. However, C. glabrata causes 10-15% of infections, and many C. glabrata strains are resitant to the "azole" drugs. See your doctor and ask about alternative treatments, such as nystatin, flucytosine, or caspofungin. ...Read more

Is it safe to use consecutive doses of Monistat 3? Yeast infection symptoms cleared up after 3 day course but external irritation remains.
Safe but: It is safe to extend the use. When people do not get better using over the counter yeast medications I like to see them in the office to confirm that they actually have yeast and not something else. If you do not get better with the 2nd treatment schedule a visit. Prevaleaf Soothe is a nice over the counter supplement to yeast medications for vaginal irritation as well. ...Read more
