Same class...: Your question creates another... why would you take these two together? Flucloxacillin and amoxicillin are in the same class of antibiotics. Assuming you have been prescribed both by your physician, simply ask what the rationale is for prescribing both - the physician who knows your medical history and reason for treatment is best able to answer this question.
Likely unconnected.: Flucloxacillin is an antibiotic in the penicillin family. While penicillins as a class can cause rashes, most med related rashes are generalized rather than localized. So, it's likely that something else has caused the rashes. However If your rash spread or becomes itchy or if you get other symptoms of allergic reaction, stop the med immediately & get medical help.See 1 more doctor answer
Different spectrum: Both of these drugs are penicillins. The main difference is in their antibacterial spectrums. Amoxicillin is active against many strains of enterococcus and streptococcus but alnost no strains of staphylococcus. Flucloxacillin is not active against enterococcus, it does also covers many strains of streptococcus and has good activity against methicillin sensitive staph. Aureus but not mrsa.
Excess: Yes- you should be quite sick by now. Please go to the er and give them an accurate history.
I've been on flucloxacillin for three days. I began feeling nauseated today, can it take this long for side effects to show up?
Yes: Yes, the side effect can take a few days to show up, as it changes the germs in your stomach.
Definitely not: Flucloxacillin is an antibiotic, which can only help a bacterial infection. Most coughs are not due to bacteria; even when they are, it would take several days to help the cough. Nobody should ever take any antibiotic without a doctor's evaluation and prescription. Contact your GP about further evaluation of your cough and perhaps a propoer cough suppressant. Good luck!See 1 more doctor answer
Will not: Flucloxacillin will not clear boils. It will treat infection in the skin surrounding the boils but boils must be drained in order to clear.
