My mom has a sore throat, chest congestion and a earache. She is on aspirin, losartin and citalopram...What antibiotics can she take for her symptoms?

See her doctor: Antibiotics will not help a viral illness, if that's what she has. If she feels she has more than a cold (which will improve with rest, fluids, decongestants, etc) she needs to see her primary care doctor for an assessment and suggestions. Since we don't know her whole history (including allergies), and have not examined her, we on healthtap can't recommend particular antibiotics. ...Read more

If: If a patient has leg pain and swelling, then it must be determined whether the cause is from the superficial veins or deep veins. This is done with an ultrasound (vascular) study. If it is a deep system clot, then the patient needs to take blood thinners. If the pain is from superficial veins only, then heat packs, aspirin, and elevation can help. Deep clots need to be ruled out however. ...Read more

If you're using aspirin for pain regularly, it's worth consulting a doc who knows pain meds. ...Read more
