Urine Culture	PROTEUS MIRABILIS both

Is Amoxycillin 250mg q.i.d. better in treating dental infection or Metronidezole 200mg q.i.d?

Is Amoxycillin 250mg q.i.d. better in treating dental infection or Metronidezole 200mg q.i.d?

It depends: This depends on the type of dental infection. Amoxicillin usually would be preferred. Metronidazole usually is not prescribed alone, generally along with another antibiotic. Neither drug usually is given 4 times daily, usually 2-3 doses daily. Check with the doctor or dentist treating you and follow his or her advice. ...Read more

Probably not: The increases in WBC and neut are expected when on high doses of prednisone. However you need to have follow up with your rheumatologist to address this issue since only a direct exam can help detect the presence of an infection which may be masked by the medications you are taking. ...Read more

Why bilirbn increasing while gpt/ got improving?

Tumor growth: I'm being very honest here. In my experience, this is a sign of tumor growth causing obstruction of your bile ducts. Your bilirubin is too high for you to safely get most types of chemo. The tumor may be obstructing the main bile duct, and sometimes that can be stented. But this is a time to ask your doc for an honest prognosis. Warm thoughts to you. ...Read more

Hi Doc, had UTI test. Result: Epithelial cells 1-2/HPF, pus Cells 2-3/HPF, colony count 100,000 cfu/ml. Organism Isolated:Staphylococcus saprophyticus?

Can I take amoxicillin 250 and augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 375 instead of augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 625 mg ?

Can I take amoxicillin 250 and augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 375 instead of augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 625 mg ?

Not the same: Since we have no idea why you would be taking the meds, we can not comment on whether this would be appropriate. These meds are not the same. Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 625 has a specific amount of clavulanate that is paired with the amoxicillin, and they work as a team. Your substitution is not equivalent. ...Read more
