I have pneumonia and persistent fever. My Doctor give me azithromycin 250 and cefexim 400. Should I eat them together in certain time of the day?

Regular schedule: You can take these antibiotics together -there is no problem with that. The best thing though is to take them on a regular schedule -that way the 'levels' of the medicine will be sustained because that is what you want to treat the pneumonia. If you don't improve shortly, you need to call your doctor for answers. Hopefully they got cultures to tell you 'what' germ the infection is caused by. ...Read more

Friends mom type 2 diabetic. Weak, don't even want to get up to eat. Blood sugar levels normal, bronchitis azithromycin making her sick and weak? Stress?

Antibiotics: Antibiotics such as zithromax can make you sick to your stomach. Bronchitis can make you weak and tired. I would have her take it easy and rest for the next 24 hours, taking her medications as directed. Eating is not a priority so just give broth, crackers and toast. If she is still weak and tired after 24 more hours then recheck by doctor. ...Read more

What: What was the diagnosis? The medications they prescribed are for an infection, possibly an upper respiratory infection, and upset stomach. These medications will not be very effective against heartburn (gerd - reflux). Typically over the counter medication for reflux are Prilosec and zantac (ranitidine). You can try one of them, but if the symptoms last for more than a week then you should see your regular physician for a more complete history and exam. If the sore throat is due to an upper respiratory tract infection the there are a number of medications available at the major pharmacies. Ask the pharmacist for assistance. ...Read more

See the doctor: This sounds quite severe. If you cannot eat and have such severe symptoms you might need the hospital where they can give you IV antibiotics and IV fluids. I would want to know if they cultured you as well-so they can give you the right antibiotics. Try some hot ginger tea or ginger candy for the localized throat symptoms. I think though you need the doctor - I would call and tell them u need help ...Read more

Pill esophagitis?: Sometimes gerd is atypical--presenting without classic heartburn but nevertheless causing inflammation of the esophagus (& even up to throat). On occasion, particularly with some antibiotics, local injury can result if there is hang-up of the medicine for a brief period of time. If your symptoms don't respond to antacids or simple acid blocker drugs over-the-counter, get a medical evaluation. ...Read more
