Is the medication ceftin a mild or major antibiotic for sinus infections?

Is it safe to use Advocare products while taking Adderal 15 and Effexor ER 75. Also taking an antibiotic for sinus infections - Biaxin. Thanks so much!

Is it safe to use Advocare products while taking Adderal 15 and Effexor ER 75.  Also taking an antibiotic for sinus infections - Biaxin.  Thanks so much!

No Advocare: I would not use Advocare. It is not FDA approved. It isn't proven to be safe or effective. Also, there are no "quick fixes" for weight control, getting energized, etc. Fad diets only result in the weight being gained back later after the diet is over. You are taking a relatively low dose of Effexor. Have you asked your doctor about possibly increasing your dose, as well as about your other issues? ...Read more

Advocare +meds: Hi ~ I looked this up the other day because another person asked. I did not see anything in the ingredients that would cause any problem with your meds. The only TOXIC issue was suggesting that the "colon cleanses" do any good at all. Frankly, I think its todays greatest scam. Use metamucil to bulk and increase roughage in diet and exercise. The GUT was designed by a genius. Its self cleansing! ...Read more
