I have a sinus infection and was put on cefdinir, and prednisone. I have a wedding to attend in 4 days. Can I drink alcohol while on these?

I have a sinus infection and was put on cefdinir, and prednisone. I have a wedding to attend in 4 days. Can I drink alcohol while on these?

SPARINGLY: The small glasses of champagne to toast the wedding couple is fine, but would not exceed that. Alcohol interferes with the ability of white blood cells to fight infection, and in general is not a good fit with antibiotic treatment. A very limited amount should not cause a problem, but tying one on certainly might. ...Read more

I got this new drink called kefir and it says its good for intestinal health. But what all does it do? Will it help control Ibs

I got this new drink called kefir and it says its good for intestinal health. But what all does it do? Will it help control Ibs

It aids digestion: Kefir is a probiotic drink. In this case, it is a fermented milk drink similar to yogurt, except in liquid form. It contains Lactobacillus Kefiranofaciens. The idea is that the lactobacillus replaces the bad bacteria in your stomach, and makes digestion smoother. It can also in theory decrease gas and reflux symptoms. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I'm 31 and have had thrombosis on my right leg. I'm not fat, I used to drink water kefir, used contraceptive pill. Do you think kefir cause it?

Not the kefir: Contraceptive pills increase the risk of thrombosis. This risk is increased if the woman is a smoker or if she has a history of thrombosis in the family. Kefir would not cause this problem. ...Read more

I've been taking cefdinir for an ear infection. My last dose is Sat 8am. Would it been safe to have a few drinks Sat night? (Company xmas party)

Safe!?!: Social drinking does not interfere with most antibiotics and the few that it would should have warning labels on the prescription bottle. Safety has a number of meanings. As long as you behave yourself and let someone else drive there should not be a problem. ...Read more

How long does it take for cefdinir to start helping bronchitis? We're on day three and not seeing improvement.

Likely viral: Most of the time people go to a doctor for coughing, congestion and drainage and request help with treatment. Typically these condtions are viral or allergic related and antibiotics will not do anything to help "clear" them any faster than regular rest and otc drugs will. If you are having significant wheezing you need to consider breathing treatments and return to your doctor for further eval. ...Read more

Diagnosed with acute sinusitis10 days ago. Fnp put me on omnicef (cefdinir) 300mg 2x daily for 10 days and some other decongestants. Has not improved. Should I go back, or give it more time/what else can I do?

Need re-examination: After 10 days on an antibiotic, your symptoms should have improved, though maybe not 100%. If not improved at all, might need stronger antibiotic, prescription nasal spray, etc. I also recommend saline nasal spray or sinus irrigation such as with a nettie pot. Take Guaifenesin (mucinex) also to thin out the secretions. ...Read more
