What's in doxycycline does it have any of the cillins in it like amoxicillin or penicillin or any of them answer asap?
Yes, assuming. . .: The antihistamine Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is not related to antibiotics, penicillin & amoxicillin. So if you're allergic to diphenhydramine, you should still be able to take penicillin & amoxicillin, assuming that you're not allergic to those meds, too. Out of curiosity, what were your allergy symptoms? Perhaps you're allergic to filler & dye in pill, not to diphenhydramine. ...Read more

I am allergic to penicillin G per the blood test. Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) caused the reaction. Is Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate), penicillin "G"? Ty
Similar: The amoxicillin in Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) and Penicillin share a common core structure and thus people allergic to Penicillin are almost always allergic to amoxicillin. On the other hand, not all people reacting to amoxicillin are allergic to penicillin when the reaction is a skin rash. ...Read more
7 months of bladder infections. Taken k flex, amoxicillin, penicillin, bactrim, (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) now on Macrobid for 17 days CAT scan x rays ultrasound normal help?
Too many; c a Urolog: At your age, I think that's too many bladder infections. Something underlies these recurrent infections: something that antibiotics alone can't fix. While the CT scan & imaging test show that u (or some1) is concerned, they r the wrong tests. What u need is a cystoscopy by a Urologist (looking @bladder with a scope). If it's neg, a voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG) wd be the type of CT scan to get. ...Read more
Tried trimethoprim, nitrofurantoin and cephalexin for uti. Nothing has worked so far. I'm allergic to augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) and penicillin- what else can I try?
Watch symptoms: There is sometimes cross allergic reactivity between penicillin and amoxcillin but frequently not. Many with penicillin allergy actually do not have it at all. Simply monitor your symptoms for the next 4-10 hours and if you do not experience coughing, throat tightening, wheeing or respiratory distress, then you are probably OK. ...Read more
Amoxicillin: Amoxicillin is a synthetic penicillin, and has a broader spectrum of anti-bacterial activity than penicillin. Penicillin has limited use these days, since so many bacteria have developed an immunity to plain penicillin. For most staph infections, Amoxicillin is combined with something called clavulanic acid, which allows the Amoxicillin to kill staph infections that would otherwise be resistant. ...Read more
Probably not: Penicillium notatum is a mold/fungi that if allergic, can cause symptoms like runny nose, sneezing, nasal congestion, worsening of asthma symptoms, etc. Penicillin antibiotics do not contain enough of the mold, and when ingested, would be a different reaction. To be safe, you could get tested for penicillin allergy with an allergist. ...Read more
Supposing that I can take penicillin safely without problems can I take amoxicillin safely with no side effects too?
I was allergic to penicillin as a baby. Now I am 34. Is it likely that if I take amoxicillin I could have a reaction?
Yes: Amoxicillin is a form of penicillin and does carry the risk of an allergic (immediate hypersensitivity)reaction if that is indeed what you had. Unfortunately the actual symptoms of drug reactions are typically poorly documented. The good news : Penicillin allergy tends to fade with time so there is an excellent chance that you are no longer allergic. A penicillin skin test can determine this ...Read more
I'm supposed to be allergic to penicillin but I take amoxicillin with no problems. Does this mean I'm not allergic anymore?
If a med. Says not to take if allergic to penicillin or any form of it and a dr. Gives to someone allergic to amoxicillin is ok? I want to know if its ok to take a medication that says not to take if allergic to penecillin or any form of it and I am aller
No: Amoxicillin is a type of penicillin. You should not take it if you are sure that you are allergic to penicillin. Other pencillin drugs you need to avoid are ampicillin, ticaracillin, augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) (amoxicillin-clavulanate), piperacillin, and sometimes cephalosporin antibiotics. You should see an allergist to help you out with by testing and clarifying the allergies. ...Read more
