Antibiotics: Antibiotics are for infections. I doubt you got an infection from a small cut like you described.

Unless you become swollen and/or have pus coming out of the wound, I don't think you need to worry. Watch what you eat the next few days to allow the tissue to heal. ...Read more

Hello, sore throat 15 days, antibiotics 9 days, take Tylenol/Advil Prn but still majorly hurts to move my tounge...Help. I've taken naproxen at night,?

See a doctor: There are some possible complications of a sore throat, such as peritonsillar abscess, or epiglottitis, that would need treatment urgently, as they can be dangerous, so I have to advise that you be seen and examined by a physician or other qualified provider.

1st time elevated serum ALT 57. on oral antibiotics/Tylenol daily for a month that stopped 10 days before test. Is that the cause AND what next?

Maybe: Not extremely high the Tylenol could be the cause. I would repeat labs in a month unless you feel ill. Try to stay away from Tylenol and any alcohol for a month and see what the labs say. ...Read more

I have had a low grade fever 99.5 and I'm on antibiotics and taking tylenol (acetaminophen) and morton? Why isn't my fever going down?

I have had a low grade fever 99.5 and I'm on antibiotics and taking tylenol (acetaminophen) and morton? Why isn't my fever going down?

Fever: You do not necessarily have a fever. A temp of 99.5 f is normal late in the day. If you reach 100 f or fail to get as low as 98.6 f during a 24 hour period you are considered febrile (having fever), but even then it may not be clinically relevant. The question is why are you on antibiotics and what was the diagnosis? If this is viral you certainly don't need these. Hope you are better soon. ...Read more

Does tylenol (acetaminophen) affect my birth control (COC) pill in any way? Or any other pain killers, in general? (excluding antibiotics)

Does tylenol (acetaminophen) affect my birth control (COC) pill in any way? Or any other pain killers, in general? (excluding antibiotics)

No interaction: No-it's really the antibiotics that are the problem with birth control pills, because antibiotics affect the 'gut recycling' of the medication. What that means, is the levels of birth control pills can be lower than normal when on antibiotics. Pain meds are not known for that kind of effect. Hopefully you won't need any pain meds at all-that would be ideal, since everything has side effects. Ingat ...Read more

I have pulpotomy that I didn't get finished. Infected now. Prescribed norco and antibiotics. Can I just mix Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Motrin instead of taking norco?

See your dentist: See your dentist. It is best to have the treatment which was started completed by the dentist or specialist. An incomplete treatment will lead to further pain and discomfort due to bacterial infection in the root of the tooth. A root canal treatment maybe recommended with a full coverage crown following the root canal and coronal buildup. ...Read more

I have my tonsils removed one day ago, my uvula is swallowing. What should I do. What to eat. I'm taking antibiotics and Tylenol (acetaminophen)?

Eat and be merry: Active culture yogurt w/ nice protein such as Greek or Aussie style. Kefir is a good choice too. You can freeze the yogurt or kefir to make a cold treat that's easy to eat. Make some gelatin and add ground flax seed to it. You can do the same with chia seeds. In fact, you could add chia to almost any liquid (milk, juice) to get your daily intake until healed. Avoid hot, spicy, acidic foods. ...Read more

I was wondering if it was safe to eat Tylenol while on antibiotics. I have an ear infection so I'm on antibiotics but I have a lot of back pain right?

I was wondering if it was safe to eat Tylenol while on antibiotics. I have an ear infection so I'm on antibiotics but I have a lot of back pain right?

Tylenol: I do not know of any antibiotic that would typically be used for an ear infection that would have an adverse interaction with Tylenol. If you usually have no problem with Tylenol, the antibiotic should not cause any additional problem. Limit your Tylenol intake to 3000mg or less per day. ...Read more

Can I put baby orajel on my infected + inflamed wisdom tooth to help with pain on antibiotics and tylenol (acetaminophen) with codiene no helping gets pulled tuesday?

You can try..: Orajel is quite safe, but not terribly powerful medicine to help with pain. It won't hurt to try it. You are already on antibiotic and so should be ok. You can consider adding motrin/aleve. Also, consult your doc/dentist to see if it is appropriate to increase your pain medicine i.e. Taking two tylenol/codeine at once may provide better pain control. Good luck. ...Read more

Can tylenol (acetaminophen) and flu antibiotics cause stomach upset and diarrhea? I am having these medicines for flu.

DETAILS MATTER!!!!!: "Flu antibiotics"?????? When you submit this again with the exact names of all your meds then an answer is possible. "Stomach upset" is vague. Nausea, vomiting, pain, burning??? "Flu" is too vague. Antibiotics vary widely but all are likely to cause nausea, diarrhea, etc. Antibiotics should not be used for routine viral infections.

I am taking 2 antibiotics for gastrointestinal infection. One says no to NSAIDs. Is Tylenol (acetaminophen) PM an NSAID. As exhausted and ill as I am, can't sleep.?

Tylenol (acetaminophen) PM: Is not an NSAID and could probably be used safely, if used in the correct dosage. Please check the bottle. Be careful not to take an excessive amount of Tylenol, (acetaminophen) since it can cause liver problems if used excessively. Otherwise, it is worth a try to help you sleep. Good luck. ...Read more

Many moving parts: The type of infectious organism will affect the cbc in various ways, usually causing an increase in neutrophils. Can affect lymphocytes and monocytes as well. The enlarged spleen may sequester immune cells or destroy red cells decreasing the numbers in the cbc.
