Can I Take Amoxicillin For A Cough
I'm coughing real blood and I've got chest pain. No fever, but constant cough (big smoker). Will amoxicillin take care of it?
The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more

No: There is no such thing as Amoxicillin ear drops. Amoxicillin is an oral antibiotic. It is not unusual to get ear pain with an upper respiratory infection. Check for fever. Generally ear pain will resolve within 24 hours. Give him a pain reliever. If he starts running high fevers or pain does not resolve, than call his doctor to be seen.

Yes: Amoxicillin should be compatible with otc cough meds. May take a few days to see improvement. Honey has been shown to be equally effective as dextromethorphin in suppressing cough. Make sure that otc is not just Guaifenesin which only thins mucous. Could do dextromethorphin and honey together. Could go to Codeine syrup if cough dry. Don't stop cough completely if mucous coming to clear lung.See 2 more doctor answers

DON'T DO IT! Bad Idea: Antibiotics should only be taken when it's clear you have a bacterial infection sensitive to that antibiotic. The vast majority of sore throats are viral & antibiotics will do more harm than good, impairing immune function, killing friendly flora & can cause diarrhea & yeast infections. Pelargonium sidoides, an herb sold at health food stores as Umcka, is more likely to help- also zinc lozenges.
I'm on azithromycin for 3 days for cough, etc. But 2marow I have a dentist apt. For cleaning and need to take amoxicillin because of new knee any effect?
Don't double up: The Azythromycin may be all that you need for both situations. Call the Dentist and discuss ALL the meds you are taking. Let Dentist decide 1. Which antibiotic would be best (DDS/DMD may want to talk tis over with your MD? DO), and also whether Dentist wants to put your visit off until after you're free from whatever is causing you to cough.See 5 more doctor answers

Will amoxicillin work for an upper respiratory infection? Persistent cough over a week now with clear phlegm and wheezing. Take pro-air as needed.
Probably not: Antibiotics are to treat bacterial infections and do nothing for allergies or viruses If you are wheezing you should take the proair q 4 hours and see your doctor as you may need an ancillary agent such as an inhaled steroid to calm down the chest inflammation Also some forms of chest infection are not associated with fever so close f/u with your doctor is essentialSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes., .: If you were prescribed this antibiotic by your doctor for your cough, then you need to finish the prescription to reduce the risk of developing resistance. You were prescribed the antibiotic probably for acute bacterial bronchitis so you need to finish the antibiotic course as prescribed.See 2 more doctor answers
Viral?: If your cough developed during or just after an upper respiratory tract infection, (URI) it is likely non-infectious so an antibiotic may not be helpful. Typically, these coughs are bronchospastic and you may need a bronchodilator inhaler and perhaps a steroid inhaler. These coughs can occur with a viral URI or bacterial and may last for many weeks. Inhalers may increase your comfort.See 2 more doctor answers
